The mission is to design furniture that is simultaneously a continuation of an existing tradition and the expression of a new one, but in sync. Stellar Works as a company aims at follwoing sustainable practices, which controls production processes from beginning to end. Thus, the wood comes from responsible logging, the rest of raw materials (metal, fabrics, leather) have strict traceability certificates, and all this has been classified with 4 stars according to Japanese certified, the strictest in the industry.
In terms of the way that the company preserves historical styles from the past, its vintage range includes icons of 20th C design like Vilhelm Wolhert and Carlo Forcolini, with a light touch 21st C reinterpretation. Meanwhile regarding the more contemporary furniture collections elements of the famous movements from the last century are celebrated with individual pieces, such as the Bauhaus functionality or the refined Scandinavian simplicity of mid 20th Century, often cross referenced with the Asian aesthetic.
