Antler Chair (1955)
Renowned for his sculptural minimalism, Vilhelm Wohlert was a Danish designer and educator, including an early teaching stint at University of California, Berkeley, and chiefly later at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. His midcentury pieces like this 1955 Antler Chair have become iconic works in the years since, illustrating the evolution of Nordic furnishings. In solid ash or walnut with a veneer laminate back support, this classic wood chair showcases his less-is-more ethos and mastery of proportion.

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.
