Ex­cel­lence is the level at which Henge be­gins the pur­suit of its craft. Ex­cel­lence in form and in func­tion, ex­cel­lence in mak­ing and in the se­lec­tion of ma­te­ri­als used – these are the touch­stones the Ital­ian lux­ury fur­ni­ture and de­sign brand has ad­hered to since its es­tab­lish­ment in 2008. It’s a vi­sion that was en­cap­su­lated in the very first ‘Home Col­lec­tion’ cre­ated un­der the di­rec­tion of ar­chi­tect and de­signer Mas­simo Castagna (above right) three years later, which con­tin­ues to evolve to­day. Born from a de­sire to ‘cre­ate a house en­tirely de­signed by Henge’, the col­lec­tion has had three ma­jor cat­a­logues since its 2011 launch. It of­fers ev­ery­thing from fur­ni­ture and light­ing to stor­age and or­na­men­ta­tion, draw­ing on na­ture’s finest ma­te­ri­als – wood, metal, stone and leather – to bring warmth, im­pact and lus­tre into homes.

A very spe­cific phi­los­o­phy lies at the core of each ‘Home Col­lec­tion’: that at its best a home is a place of con­trasts within which a bal­ance of more for­mal, ‘solemn pres­ences’ live along­side pieces with mul­ti­ple func­tion­al­ity – of which the ta­bles Yabu Pushel­berg, (right) de­signed for the col­lec­tion are a case in point. Mar­ry­ing the finest Ital­ian crafts­man­ship with lead­ing de­sign tech­nol­ogy, ev­ery piece can be cus­tomised to suit an in­di­vid­ual’s spe­cific re­quire­ments – yet one more ex­am­ple of Henge’s de­sire to cre­ate a con­nec­tion be­tween us and the ob­jects that fill our homes.
