WITH WHOM WOULD WE LOVE TO SHARE OUR HOMES WITH?
A simple question is our starting point in thinking about this collection, giving us food for thought and setting us free from any misconception created by the style, preconcepts, ideas and fashion waves on the market. Who, we share our homes with, is more than a piece of furniture, it is a companion in our travels, something that once it has entered our homes stay with us throughout life, setting up an intimate personal relationship that reflects our idea of what is beautiful. It is a presence that ages slowly with us, day by day taking on that distinctive sheen that only time can produce. To choose what we will share our homes with is a difficult task for the right balance between the mind, the mere functionality and the heart which brings our sense of beauty and passion into play. Such choices must necessarily reflect our personal feelings and provoke the same pleasure day after day. We have thought of objects that are very different from each other in terms of design approach, type and materials used. Sometimes worlds apart from each other, they can live well together and enter freely into many homes incorporating different styles to become strong elements that break with routine. The objects are free from the obsession that they must fit to a certain style, deliberately denying mannerisms and formalisms. The collection is made up of heterogeneous pieces, visionary protagonists of the domestic scene.
Products made in Italy represent a way of thinking and producing that the whole world appreciates and acknowledges as belonging to us. It is the result of the passion of many people, manufacturing excellence, and the construction and stylistic refinement found in every detail. Time tested experience and unique original manual skills are an essential part of our DNA.
Henge products are all strictly Made in Italy with craftsman manufacturing criteria, a far cry from mass production lines and industrial management, in that part of the Italian world of production where hands are still a value and a tangible difference and time seems to go by at the pace of Nature.
Furniture items are designed today but made in the best tradition by expert hands, with no compromise, making use of new technologies and old manufacturing methods now obsolete but forming part of our culture, history and tradition.
Conscientious balanced use of energy is one of our duties towards future generations, a necessity today and an obligation tomorrow. The world is now paying the price in terms of climate change and environmental pollution.
Producing furniture with craft criteria is an approach that allows for a limited use of energy, as is the production and use of energy from clean renewable sources.
Henge has its own latest generation photovoltaic system that produces the energy it consumes, fully supplying the needs of production. Clean renewable energy is a small contribution to environmental friendliness: Henge furniture is made with solar energy.
