Every design that leaves Henry Timi’s namesake studio HENRYTIMI embodies a resolute vision: quiet in nature, simplistic yet luxurious, monastic and restrained. He works exclusively with natural materials and most pertinently timber and stone, enjoying the privilege of transforming these materials with his hands. The importance of nature is embedded in everything Henry Timi touches – especially in his own home.
Henry Timi’s designs are lauded for their Italian craftsmanship, as he credits the history of Italian cities as a principal source of inspiration. All designs by HENRYTIMI, including the monolithic HTGR60 Kitchen and HTGR702 Basin are handcrafted in his factory in Italy. It’s here he also researches, experiments and percolates ideas for new projects.
Following our exclusive tour through Henry Timi’s Milan Apartment in est Magazine issue #33, we jumped at the opportunity to speak with the designer and artist. In this philosophical conversation, Henry Timi shares insight on his love of travertine, his most significant commission to date, and his constant quest for aesthetic perfection, the essence in absence, the symbolic and the eternal.
