A family-run group, est. 1999. Henzel strives to ensure the long-term development of each of its studios in keeping with their legacy, creativity, identity and expertise. Each of them is autonomous but has the same overall goals. They co-exist with each other, leading to unpredictable resonances such as cultural and artistic intersections.
Henzel has collaborated with over thirty leading contemporary artists and exhibited at prominent venues such as MOCA, Katonah Museum of Art, Boca Raton Museum of Art and The Goss-Michael Foundation. These actions have further elevated the studio as an influential and global cultural force.
Henzel Studio’s ethos is based on the artistic practice of Calle Henzel, founder and creative director. Over the past twenty years, he has translated his artistic practice as painter and collage artist into the medium at hand, positioning Henzel Studio as one of the most progressive luxury rug brands in the world. The organic and artistic process of Calle Henzel has been the driving force in the development of Henzel Studio’s designs. He has over the years in an uncompromised fashion challenged the traditional conventions of subject matter, shape, finishings and special treatments as a result of painstaking research that includes vintage treatments, intricate surface compositions and even natural erosion – methodologies that further blur the distinction between art and design. Calle Henzel has collaborated with some of the most prominent names in contemporary art and artists foundations including Tom of Finland Foundation and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Since the launch of 'Henzel Studio Collaborations' at Barneys New York Madison Avenue in 2014 during Frieze Art Fair, Henzel Studio has developed art rugs with over thirty contemporary artists including Richard Prince, Helmut Lang, Jack Pierson, Nan Goldin, Scott Campbell, Richard Phillips, Marilyn Minter, Mickalene Thomas and Anselm Reyle. Via 'Henzel Studio Heritage' extensive collections have also been developed in collaboration with artist estates, that to date include Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and Tom of Finland Foundation.
