Truly a 'grail' for any cocktail aficionado, David Rockwell's Valet Bar Cart is elegantly crafted in matte-black steel with wrapped leather-cord accents. The cart boasts a pair of walnut shelves—the top one a work surface with a leather sling wine rack underneath and the bottom one for liquor or tumblers. A handy bottle opener hangs at the ready while a saddle leather bag holds a barman's tools. The essence of mobility, the cart's brass casters can smoothly move 360 degrees.

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.
