Ren Conference Table
Resoundingly handsome but not overdesigned, this superb conference table embodies both the Danish Modern tradition and an eloquent Asian simplicity. Spanning more than 11 feet in length, it is crafted in solid ash with brass-plated detail and graced with a veneer laminate tabletop with an elegantly angled edge. Space Copenhagen designers Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rutzou aim for a global sensibility—also reflected in the maker Stellar Works, which combines state-of-the-art production expertise based in Shanghai with an international slate of acclaimed designers.

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.
