The coveted award given by the renowned magazine Wallpaper* celebrates objects, places, and people that have represented “the finest of 2018″.

Henge won the title of Wallpaper* Design Awards 2019 winner for the”Best earth tones” category with the Be Mine coffee table designed by Massimo Castagna, the brand’s artistic director and creative guide.

This recognition is highly valuable for Henge and its artistic director Massimo Castagna, who consolidates the brand’s identity on an international level. The newest Be Mine coffee table awarded by Wallpaper* is the tranformation of the one presented in 2017 in application with sofa seats or with the D-Code table.

Designed to become central in the living area, the Be Mine table evolves from its original application, with borders in the iconic jagged shape, made in XL measurements of 160×70 cm and 180×70 cm. Along with the polished brass or silver finishes, the construction is completed using the floor casting method.

The standard rectangular shape of the new XL variant also provides another pairing with the Touch table, expanding the capabilities and possible uses. The modular item can be customized based on different needs and contexts. At the same time, it extends beyond the mere goal of a piece of furniture by representing the brand’s philosophy and creative director.

Rare materials and manufacturing methods, refined finishes, unusual dimensions and combinations, and material research are the foundation from which Henge takes its measures and thinks of its collections. Objects like the Be Mine table that contain a pair of special features soar beyond their particular function and become a real bit of contemporary art.
