Born from a mutual attraction and a shared philosophy, Henge and Yabu Pushelberg's collaboration led to the creation of successful collections and to a renewed willingness to experiment together. From the appreciation of detail all the way down to craftsmanship and the strength and beauty of the natural world, the two creator's shared universe of values creates the foundation for the successful designs of the duo and their vision.
Henge and Pushelberg's collaboration started in 2016 with Mushroom: a family of coffee tables that pay homage to the natural world. In 2019, the organic curiosity that drew Henge and Pushelberg together lead to the creation of two more collections: Puddle and Noce.
PUDDLE & NOCE COLLECTIONS
The simple and sophisticated Puddle evokes the serendipity of looking up while walking in the woods, discovering the magic sight of tree canopy, always changing and combining into new forms. The family of coffee tables is finished in silver, bronze, and burnished brass.
Noce, the Italian word for walnut, is a family of dining and lounge chairs. The form of the tree served as an inspiration to the meta-design of a trunk in solid wood supporting its botanical crown, upholstered in nubuck leather.
The craftsmanship of Henge's team worked for two years on the proportions of Noce, mastering its gentle and powerful final form. The tonal palette of Noce ranges from nuances of honey, taupe, nude, grey and charcoal.
