HENGE’S TALENT LINE- UP THE ARTISTIC VISION
Massimo Castagna, architect and artistic director, Henge ‘Home Collection’
An architect by training ( he famously designed Everest’s ‘Piramide’ laboratory, built at an altitude of 5,050 metres in Nepal in 1991), these days Castagna’s CV is considerably broader, encompassing everything from furniture and product design to artistic direction and interior design. His collaboration with Henge began in 2011 with the launch of the first ‘Home Collection’. The scope of Castagna’s professional achievements ensures a fully committed ‘360-degree’ approach to design and functionality. ‘ What do we want to have around us in our own homes?’ was the question that formed the basis of the latest ‘Home Collection’ designs. ‘ What we decide to live with is much more than a piece of furniture, it’s a companion,’ he has noted, ‘as, once it is inside our homes, it keeps us company on our journey through life.’ It is a commitment to creating ‘companion’ pieces that go beyond simple form and function that bring Castagna’s vision for Henge to life.
