Henzel Studio's ethos is based on the artistic practice of Calle Henzel. Over the past two decades, he has translated his artistic work into the medium at hand, positioning Henzel Studio as one of the world’s most progressive rug brands.
Since the launch of 'Henzel Studio Collaborations' at Barneys New York Madison Avenue in 2014 during Frieze Art Fair, Henzel Studio has developed limited edition art rugs with over thirty leading contemporary artists. 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

ON VIEW: JWAN YOSEF, OBJECT / OBJECT
December 1 2021 – February 28 2022
Jwan Yosef’s works explore both formalism and autobiographical themes, with a conceptual undertaking that queers the principles of modernist aesthetics. Yosef’s tactical use of abstraction serves opportunities to release entendres and challenge viewers to break from passive gazes towards a plurality of perspectives.
Whether fixating on the materiality or language of an object, Yosef’s inspirations draw from the potentialities of states of being. The core of this fixation engages a reexamining of functions, routines and expectations of artistic gestures, materials and their interpreted values. Yosef invites the vernacular of everyday materials to a re-thinking of possibilities—a poetic exercise that extracts the many metaphors and biases society projects on familiar effects. The potency of Yosef’s endeavors ultimately refines a poignant and lucid reminder of our own relationships and interpretations of the everyday world and each other.
