In the design evolution of furniture for public spaces, Vilhelm Wohlert's Church Chair is a midcentury exemplar of the Danish designer's iconic stance. Stellar Works has reissued the solid wood seating with its distinctive woven paper rush seat as part of its finely crafted Wohlert collection. Focusing on his most celebrated designs of the 1950s, each piece is as usefully relevant today as when it was originally conceived.
30" h x 20.5" w x 20" d (76.5x52.2x51cm)

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.
