STELLAR WORKS

Stellar Works stands for a renaissance of refined culture and Asian aesthetics. Inspired by the long standing craft and industry of traditional cultures, it represents a commitment to bridging the gap between old and new, east and west – in attitude, form and application.

Stellar Works seeks to reintroduce past collections of classics, alongside culturally -inspired contemporary signatures. It infuses freshness into heritage and grounds innovation with enduring craftsmanship.

ROOTS

In 2012, Stellar Works was established as a way to bring ideas together: East and West, heritage and modernity, craft and industry – bringing the best of the past into the light of the present. Our aim was to inspire a renaissance in Asian aesthetics, taking the forms, styles and motifs that have characterised Japanese design across the centuries and filtering them through the lens of the European tradition to create something new and timeless.

Today, sustainability is fundamental to good design, and responsible material sourcing forms a key chapter in any product’s story. Through transparent sourcing and manufacturing, Stellar Works offers clients an assurance of integrity and a demonstrable commitment to sustainability.

COLLECTIONS 

Rén – Space Copenhagen 
   
Rén was born of the desire to create a series of pieces in the Danish Modern tradition—high quality, thoughtfully crafted design that balances function with form and is accessible to all.

Made from stained ash, Rén’s tables and chairs take this distinctly Nordic philosophy and incorporate craft techniques and aesthetic detail from the design traditions of Japan and China, resulting in a collection that, although inspired by a particular place and time, is both international and ageless in its scope.

This durable seating series combines comfort with practicality and a highly sophisticated take on the enduringly popular industrial aesthetic.

Incorporating a range of lounge chairs, barstools and stools, the Utility collection is (as its name suggests) utilitarian in its references, while also featuring a palette of old-world and luxurious materials. The end result is a set of elegant and versatile pieces that fit seamlessly and gracefully into any environment, from high-end hospitality to residential projects.

 

Carlo collection – Carlo Forcolini 
   
Stellar Works’ Carlo collection gathers together some of the greatest and most influential designs of a 20th-century Italian master: Carlo Forcolini. His bold, playful and unstintingly imaginative approach resulted in a succession of attention-grabbing chairs and stools that make use of strong geometric shapes and colours – together with a touch of humour.

Alongside influential 1980s seating such as the Cotton Club and ‘smiling’ Alien chairs, the Carlo collection includes Forcolini’s self-supporting bookcase Ran Library, inspired by temple doors in China and Japan.

  Risom collection- Jens Risom 

 
   
Stellar Works is reissuing the C140 in its original caned back version as well the upholstered C142, which has an upholstered back. The chairs come in a choice of Ash or Walnut. For the upholstery, Stellar works have selected Hallingdal 65 from Kvadrat, designed by mid-century Danish designer iconic Nanna Ditzel, in a choice of 457 (yellow), 547 (orange) 850 (blue).

The Iconic C140 chair was used in the White House under President Lyndon B. Johnson’s administration and Johnson was photographed sitting in it signing the Civil Rights Act in 1964 and the Highway Beautification Act in 1965.

 Industry 
   
The Industry collection is a new accessible utilitarian-inspired chair series with simple modern lines. This comfortable seating collection is comprised of a stackable Dining Chair, Dining Armchair and Lounge Chair suitable for everyday use in both residential and commercial spaces.
