In 2012, we established Stellar Works 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.
“We have chosen this path between the old and the new because I believe good design is timeless design. Stellar Works aims to be timeless.”
– Yuichiro Hori, CEO and Founder
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.
