Its very name suggests a relaxed, laid-back attitude, not surprising given Australian designer Nic Graham's extensive background in creating welcoming hospitality interiors. Nic combines a fondness for midcentury forms with a cosmopolitan mix of materials, all of the highest quality, and assembled with an unblinking standard of craftsmanship. Traced with stitched detail, the stool's black leather upholstered seat rests on a powder-coated steel tubing base, with the brass-plated connectors adding just enough lingering eye-appeal.

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.
