stellar stackable chair padded | design sander mulder
Stellar (stĕl′ər) [derived from the Latin word Stellaris] “Relating to, involving, or resembling a star or stars, or comparable with stars for beauty and quality”. In this case, a timeless design meant to be used on a daily basis, where its stellar lines serve both a functional and aesthetic purpose. A shape conceived from childhood memories, where the comfort of those traditional wooden school chairs from the 1950’s with their humble, functional use of materials has been reinvented into a 21st-century stackable monoblock plastic chair. The strong lines shared with modern fighter planes and military decorations are decontextualized and put together to form a peaceful inviting multi-functional design. The star-like, triangular volumes on the rear and bottom parts emphasize the load-bearing function of these structures, and form a pleasant aesthetic contrast with the soft and welcoming ergonomics of both seat and backrest. Stellar is offered in a delicately textured glass fiber reinforced polypropylene, and available in five different colors: white, black, light grey, anthracite and mint green.

Born in 1978, he began studying design in 1996, sparked by the creativity and ingenuity he displayed as a child. It soon hit home; this would become his life long passion. His successful graduation from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2002, set the foundations for opening his own design studio. Always seeking new challenges and inspiration, he has since steadily been working on a diverse portfolio containing lighting, furniture and interior designs for international clients, and his own collection. His work is proof that good concepts should only exist in symbiosis with a good execution. It investigates new ways to approach the construction, functionality, and aesthetics of everyday objects and spaces. The resulting work is a combination of strong lines and subtle details, with innovative techniques and bold statements, often questioning archetypes and their interpretations by mankind.
