A Revitalization of Past Classics Collections
Stellar Works seeks to reintroduce past collections of classics, alongside culturally inspired contemporary signature designs. It infuses fresh life into heritage pieces and grounds innovation with enduring craftsmanship. It is always a joy to rediscover and reissue forgotten classics, injecting them with new relevance and updating the design so that they fit beautifully and seamlessly into a contemporary context. Stellar Works’s Vintage Collections are a revitalization of some of the most accomplished designs of 20th Century masters Jens Risom, Carlo Forcolini and Vilhelm Wohlert.
Stellar Works is also reissued Jens Risom’s C140 in its original caned-back version. 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.
Vilhelm Wohlert’s pared-down mid-century pieces have become iconic works in the design evolution of furniture for public spaces. Our collection includes the timeless Piano and Louisiana Chairs which were designed to complement Wohlert’s architectural work on the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk, Denmark.
Stellar Works Carlo collection gathers together some of the greatest and most influential designs of a 20th-century Italian master. 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.
