The Metaphysics of Beauty

HENGE’S WORLD IS INCREDIBLY RICH OF UNIQUE MATERIALS

We work with the expressiveness of the material in all its purity: we use the experience of man and his desire to experiment, following ambitious paths that go beyond the use of technology. We choose materials individually: each kind of metal, each trunk is valued and treated with care, using an innovative approach that takes advantage of their flaws and imperfections.

Playing with materials is like giving them life, a soul, teaching them to love each other. It is looking at them with their poetics and studying their combinations. It is searching for a personal feeling for the objects that live in our homes. It is welcoming and enhancing materials and ancient techniques with a contemporary spirit to create the travel companions of our lives.

The incredible world of stone, with its great facets and potential, is where matter and workmanship are closely linked in a single formula, always bringing new and different results and meanings.

We rely on Made in Italy and its universal beauty as if it were a scientific rule, loving it like a perfect romance.

THE CHARM OF IMPERFECTION

Made of craters, the surface has a lunar appearance similar to basalt volcanic rock or a meteorite, embodying the imperfect perfection of nature. Aluminum foam is the unpredictable element that enters the world of Henge to dialogue with contrasting polished materials made of pure poetry with an unexpected personality.

PLAYING WITH
STONES, METALS
AND WOODS

The best Italian craftsmen use their trained hands to set the inner beauty of surfaces free. Unique veining designs harmoniously merge with the material’s instinct. Nothing is more natural than wood, a material shaped by life and time.

The expressiveness of metals is a beloved Henge theme. These ageless, living materials mature over the years, becoming covered with a unique patina formed only by time. Metals reflect the profound, the search for inspiration, different souls, fundamental elements of the game of affinities and contrasts in the world of Henge.

The experience of our craftsmen goes hand in hand with high-tech processes: manual welding and laser cutting; man and machine working together in single unique recipe. Our stones are created using a special recipe: selection, cutting and finishing.

Each ingredient has an effect on the result and is the secret to the expressiveness of our unique products, making them unrepeatable. Our leathers are selected to bring out its distinctive characteristics and natural flaws; the aging process enhances its beauty, giving a timeless feel and nuance to the product.

It is amazing how nature knows the way to design beautifully rare paintings and to find certain affinities in completely different materials.

THE STONES SPEAK

Their language is the veins, shades of color and visual and tactile feelings created by nature’s secular work, a manifestation of the divine on earth. Delicate and majestic, cold and warm, ancient and contemporary, there are no opposites, only mysteries.
