Description

Jens Risom's midcentury seating has been dubbed the "Playboy Armchair"—taking its name from a 1961 magazine layout of the design icon among his then-peers. Stellar Works is reissuing C140 with its original caned backrest as well the upholstered-back variant C142. In ash or walnut, the chair is sheathed in a Kvadrat textile by midcentury Danish designer Nanna Ditzel. Emblematic of the era, Jens' C140 has even been noted in White House photographs of President Lyndon B. Johnson signing the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Brand

Stellar Works

Craftsmanship is at the heart of Stellar Works since a couple of design enthusiasts from France and Japan launched the line in 2013. Operations benefit from Japanese management, while the craftsmanship draws on premium European furniture practices and technical proficiency that comes with the brand’s own state-of-the-art factory in Shanghai, China.

Because Stellar Works controls end to end, it takes great pride in abiding to Japan’s Four-Star standards—the most stringent in the industry worldwide—offering transparency regarding the sourcing of every material, be it leather, metal or fabric, along with ensuring that all woods come from FSC-certified forests.

The line’s urbane sense of materials, colorways and forms is a reflection of a global roster that includes New York designer-architect David Rockwell, Toronto’s Yabu Pushelberg, Copenhagen’s Space Copenhagen and Monaco-based Humbert & Poyet—along with an exacting Asian lens by appointing Chinese duo Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu—widely known as Neri&Hu—as creative directors for the brand.
