Iconic Danish architect-designer Vilhelm Wohlert's midcentury furnishings created for public spaces combine rich materials and compelling shapes along with their essential utility. His 1956 Weave Chair aptly illustrates his innate flair, crafted in solid wood of an admirable heft with a distinctive woven paper-cording seat. Now revived by Stellar Works as part of its finely crafted Wohlert collection, the celebrated chair design once again demonstrates its very timelessness.

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.
