This simple question has been our starting point for conceiving the first collection, giving us food for thought and allowing us to free ourselves from limitations imposed by market and style trends, reference points, and standard patterns.
All that surrounds us in our home is much more than just a piece of furniture, it is our traveling companion, something that once entered our home, stays with us all our life, establishing with us an intimate and personal relationship that reflects our idea of beauty. It is a presence that ages slowly with us, taking on day after day that unique patina of time. Choosing something that will live with us in our home can be a difficult task, as it requires a delicate balance between style and function, heart and mind. Such choices must reflect our personality in order to become aesthetically and psychologically pleasing.
It is precisely for this reason that people are at the center of our thoughts and our interest: for their ways of living, their desires, and the changes brought about by changing times and habits, factors that influence our needs and consequently what and how we should approach our projects.
OUR APPROACH TO PROJECTS KNOWS NO LIMIT AS TO MATERIALS, TECHNOLOGY, AND FORM
We have thought of objects that are very different from each other in terms of approach to design, type, and materials. Sometimes worlds apart from each other, they can live well together and enter with ease houses of different styles, adding character to the space and breaking the routine.
The objects are free from the obsession to adhere to a certain style, deliberately denying mannerisms and formalisms. The collection is made up of heterogeneous and visionary pieces, leading characters of the domestic scene.
A journey that started from looking at our native land with new eyes, the land which seems suspended in time and untouched by modernity, but which appears to a careful observer as authentic and having a rich heritage of excellent craftsmanship handed down from generation to generation, the highest expression of Italian know-how.
A journey looking within ourselves, too; a moment of reflection on what we would like to have in our home and on contemporary living.
A project that continues today keeping up its initial spirit, growing richer with every step, evolving with each experience, offering new visions and new inspirations; a path passing through places and times, reinterpreting the present.
We conceive and create products in which design and the expressive force of natural materials become an organic whole, a combination of space and nature.
WORKING WITH NATURAL MATERIALS BY HAND, WE KNOW THAT EACH PIECE IS UNIQUE AND THAT EVERY PRODUCT WILL BE DIFFERENT FROM THE NEXT
Nature speaks in many voices, from soft murmurs to disruptive noise. It is a tireless soul that changes with each encounter; revolutionizes its existence without losing itself, exuding its magnificent power even in the most delicate gestures.
No industry can replicate what we create, because we remain bound to production principles where nature, weather, climate, and the seasons still play a vital role in the final result, and where the working process has ancient traditions in creating excellence.
Henge’s new Home - S34
Via della Spiga 34, Milan
A prestigious showroom of more than 750 square meters
A unique concept space
Home is a container in which we live experiences and share them with those who are part of our lives. It is the material expression of what we most love, and wish to be surrounded by, each day. It is the oldest form of “social network”, where we live and dream of being connected to our identity, cultivating unique emotions, interactions and bonds.
The Home is above all a dynamic journey, a long-term project that uses physical space to narrate our lives and wrap them up with beauty. It evokes safety and comfort throughout the various stages of our lives.
Henge has moved its Home and has created a whole new space, in the center of Milan’s Quadrilatero della Moda, Via Della Spiga 34. Just a few steps away from where it celebrated Milan and the Design Week for 7 incredible years.
The new Home is able to express with full force what, through evolution, consistent curiosity, and experimentation, Henge needs to say, in order to keepbreaking the rules and being wonderfully divergent.
The new Home is called S34, a space that allows you to immerse yourself and delve into the personality and creative eclecticism that has been a hallmark of Henge’s journey over the years. An augmented surface that merges architecture and products in one place. Three levels of light, shape, matter, and function to explore.
Sequences of enthralling settings
Unique expressive qualities can establish an emotional conversation between the product and the people around it. The secret of this journey leading to the soul of precious stones stems from an instinctive love for the beauty of an organic universe, one that is able to surprise you and bring out the amazing prodigious elements that nature forges.
A sequence of enthralling settings testifies the compelling path of a brand that has always been passionately dedicated to investigating natural reality and uncontaminated corners, exploring the rarest and most valuable materials, intending to enhance their expressive peculiarities, while establishing an emotional dialogue between the product and those who will remain fascinated by it.
Harmony of contrast
These extraordinary manufacturing skills, which rediscover and apply finishes and treatments no longer used and, as a true laboratory of experimentation, tirelessly seek innovative procedures, forge distinctive pieces of high sartorial execution, able to stimulate the senses and excite, arousing strong empathy.
Clean lines and bold geometries, often playing with unexpected contrasts and expressing themselves through the formal language of contemporaneity, respond to a very special refinement, proposing the authenticity of a beauty that will remain unaltered over time.
