Scaled down for sitting solo or à deux, Arc’s intimate confines are bordered by a thick piping between the sleek exterior and plush inside cushioning. Wanting to create a companionable feeling that suits even contract spaces, young designer Hallgeir Homstvedt emphasizes welcoming curves with the shell, seat cushion and backrest of the sofa upholstered in fine fabric or leather. A solid walnut or ash platform base adds an organic richness, resting cleanly on black steel feet.

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.
