Stellar Works' Wohlert collection assembles together a selection of the designer's iconic midcentury pieces, including this ottoman, a companion-piece to his Triangle Chair. Both were originally a part of his architectural scheme for refurbishing the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, a former residence in Humlebæk, Denmark. Elementary in purpose yet elegantly refined, the footrest's gently tapered wood frame and sling of utilitarian saddle-leather combine to make it a timeless classic.

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.
