Chillax Highback Chair
With its slender contours, the venerable wing chair gets a contemporary rethink in the Chillax collection by Nic Graham for Stellar Works. Reflecting the Australian-born designer's relaxed and offbeat sensibility, the chair's framework is rendered in industrial steel tubing enhanced with a matte powder-coat finish. The upholstered seat with its unmistakable profile is balanced by the textural contrast of wood armrests and back panel. Crafted with an unwavering attention to detail and state-of-the-art finesse from the Shanghai-based production center of Stellar Works.

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.
