First unveiled in 1980, Carlo Forcolini's Alien is also known as the "smiling chair" and reflects his bold and playful aesthetic. Stellar Works' Carlo collection gathers together some of the 20th-century Italian maestro's most influential—and attention-grabbing—pieces, with their signature geometric shapes. With his works represented in the Cooper Hewitt Museum in New York and Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris, this vibrant and whimsical side chair seems more than timeless.

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.
