Take it Slow. The broader proportions and lowered stance of this lounge chair from Stellar Work's aptly-named collection seem made for relaxation. Originally devised by Space Copenhagen for famed chef René Redzepi's restaurant 108 in the Danish capital, the collection is built along elegantly narrow lines in a melding of mid-century Danish and classic Japanese design. Handcrafted in walnut and ash with invitingly thick leather seating for a luxurious take on high comfort.

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.
