From Vilhelm Wohlert’s pared-down midcentury oeuvre, a reassuringly familiar side table originally conceived as a companion for his Louisiana Chair conceived for Denmark's modern art museum of the same name. As one of the renowned designer's celebrated pieces from the '50s, the 3-legged structure and simple inset round tabletop are a timeless example of his less-is-more ethos. Painstakingly crafted in solid oak or walnut, it comes in a wide selection of fine woodgrain finishes.

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.
