Concept

Vilhelm Wohlert’s pared-down mid- century pieces have become iconic works in the design evolution of furniture for public spaces. Stellar Works’ Wohlert collection comprises some of his most celebrated designs of the 1950s, revitalised for the modern day. Each piece showcases the Danish designer’s less-is-more ethos and talent for turning the structural into the sculptural.

The collection includes the timeless Piano and Louisiana Chairs – designed to complement Wohlert’s architectural work on the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebæk, Denmark: simple, stackable, balanced and beautifully unadorned. His Triangle Chair, also found in the museum, was specifically created to provide visitors with a comfortable place to pause, sit back and soak up the scenery – just as it does today.
