East meets West, exceptional design results The Japanese and French founders of Stellar Works envisioned creating modern furniture that incorporates cross-cultural and cross-era themes – East and West, traditional craft and modern industry, design heritage and innovation. Stellar Works brings together Asian-inspired aesthetics and European sensibilities.
In 2013, Stellar Works was established as a way to bring ideas together: East and West, heritage and modernity, craft and industry – bringing the best of the past into the light of the present. The company’s aim was to inspire a renaissance in Asian aesthetics, taking the forms, styles and motifs that have characterized Japanese design across the centuries and filtering them through the lens of the European tradition to create something new and timeless. “We have chosen this path between the old and the new because I believe good design is timeless design,” says CEO and founder Yuichiro Hori. “Stellar Works aims to be timeless.” For Stellar Works, sustainability is fundamental to good design, and responsible material sourcing forms a key chapter in any product’s story. Through transparent sourcing and manufacturing, Stellar Works offers clients an assurance of integrity and a demonstrable commitment to sustainability.
With outdoor furniture there is more freedom to be playful because of context. With interiors, form should not be so exuberant because you have a roomful of furniture.
