The new Stay Dining Table and Chair is Stellar Works’ second collaboration with famed Italian architect Michele De Lucchi. De Lucchi is one of Italy’s most celebrated designers who first rose to fame as a prominent figure in the influential Memphis movement.

The Stay Chair has a strong character and is conceived with a completely different mentality from the design of an industrially produced object. Carved from wood, the individual components of the chair are finished by hand making each piece entirely unique.


When approaching the design, De Lucchi wanted the Stay Collection to express sensitivity to nature. De Lucchi says: “At this time, when we are aware of the climate emergency and the need to change our behaviour, wood is sustainable and makes everything seem natural. I love carving wood because it is a material that lends itself well to our ability to create ever-changing objects with our hands, which is what sets us apart as human beings.”


The Stay Dining Chair is suited for both home and commercial environments and looks equally good in contemporary or traditional contexts.


In a special collaboration with American design studio BassamFellows, Stellar Works’ unveiled Pagoda, a collection of chairs inspired by the simplicity of the café chairs of mid 19th century Vienna and the café culture of 1920s Shanghai. A modern take on a classic, the expertly constructed Pagoda chair marries efficiency and comfort.


The structure of Pagoda’s compact design has been reduced to its very essence. Easy to ship and assemble, the flatpack chair consists of only six components – a curved seat, rounded back and four legs. This design delivers high quality craftsmanship and allows a multitude of material configurations. The chair’s circular seat takes inspiration from the “Way of Nature”, or concept of “oneness” in Chinese culture. Its cantilevered, slightly upward curving arms and back subtly reference Pagoda gates, giving the chair its enveloping shape. A streamlined, yet thoughtfully reimagined silhouette lends the chair its distinct personality.


Yuichiro Hori, Founder and CEO of Stellar Works. “Together we have achieved something unique: a flatpack chair that makes no compromise. Not only is it elegant and beautifully proportioned, but it is also made from the very best materials and constructed for maximum durability for both residential and hospitality settings.”

Pagoda is available in a variety of material finishes. The carved, solid wood back and seat ring are available in oak and walnut, while the seat comes in a classic Vienna cane or upholstered in a choice of leather and textile options. The legs come in either solid carved wood, or in a choice of polished or gold anodized aluminium and the seat and leg options can be mixed and matched in a variety of ways.


The chair’s flatpack design dramatically reduces shipping costs, reducing excess packaging and environmental impact. Its compact, custom-designed attaché-style carrying case can be easily carried home from a retailer or shipped in bulk for hospitality or other contract uses.

The Journey chair is Space Copenhagen’s modern interpretation of the classic Safari Chair, prioritising comfort and a modern lifestyle. Journey is versatile in use and look, embedding a balance between the rustic and a more refined, modern approach into the design.

A soft arch under the seat cushion compliments the strong, masculine silhouette of the Journey chair. Together they create a light, sophisticated look while the thicker seat cushion and soft back ensure a comfortable sitting experience.

Exposed darkened brass details reveal and celebrate the simplicity of how the chair is assembled. The Journey chair is available in Black Oak, Dark Brown Oak, Natural Oak, Natural Walnut, Onyx Oak and Soap Finished Walnut.

Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou from Space Copenhagen comment: “We have always been deeply fascinated by the Safari Chair. A typology derived from the notion of travel and adventure, and which has translated into multiple variations over time and place. The historic Safari Chair has an almost naïve, sturdy, simple geometric structure – with added hard and soft components to secure softness and flexibility.”
