The graceful wood base of this extraordinary round dining table combines both a Nordic influence and a purity of line often found the design traditions of Japan and China. Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rutzou of Space Copenhagen then chose a tabletop with a veneer laminate surface and elegant angled edge that underscores the fluid lines of Stellar Works' entire Ren series. Table crafted in stained ash with brass-plated detail, from cross-cultural brand Stellar Works, which melds traditional production finesse from Shanghai with a European-influenced modernity.

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.
