Stellar Works’ Carlo collection gathers together some of the greatest and most influential designs of a 20th-century Italian master: Carlo Forcolini. His bold, playful and unstintingly imaginative approach resulted in a succession of attention-grabbing chairs and stools that make use of strong geometric shapes and colors – together with a touch of humour. Alongside influential 1980s seating such as the Cotton Club and ‘smiling’ Alien chairs, the Carlo collection includes Forcolini’s self-supporting bookcase Ran Library, inspired by temple doors in China and Japan.

Over the course of a career spanning more than 40 years, Carlo Forcolini has designed more than 100 objects and furniture pieces for some of the most prestigious brands in Italy. Trained by the masters of Italian design, he co-founded the acclaimed design firm Alias in 1979. Steeped in references to art, literature and cinema, his work is both iconic and functional. Each piece has a story and a raison d’être – embodying an approach to design drawn from a fascination with dreams, mystery and the unknowable. Forcolini is currently the vice-chairman of the Istituto Europeo di Design and lives and works in Milan.
