Steel a Base

The Valet col­lec­tion is a new range of fur­ni­ture pieces by Amer­i­can ar­chi­tect and de­signer David Rock­well for Stel­lar Works, a Chi­nese fur­ni­ture brand in­cor­po­rated in Hong Kong.

Re­mem­ber when a clothes valet used to be a strictly male con­cern? Prob­a­bly not, but that feel­ing of strip­ping away for­mal­ity and get­ting com­fort­able in one’s own home is what David Rock­well’s Valet Col­lec­tion for Stel­lar Works is all about. The 14 pieces that com­prise the hand­some col­lec­tion are meant to stream­line func­tion­al­ity, all with a heavy em­pha­sis on crafts­man­ship. Full-grain sad­dle leather, Amer­i­can wal­nut, black pow­der-coated tubu­lar steel and brushed brass hard­ware are used in de­signs that ex­plore a ty­pol­ogy that sup­ports every­day liv­ing, work­ing, and en­ter­tain­ing. The Valet it­self, for ex­am­ple, fea­tures a leather bag with space for two pairs of shoes, a wal­nut shelf for per­sonal items and a pocket for a shoe horn. While the Bar Cart, which keeps bot­tles handy in a looped leather stor­age sys­tem also aco­mo­dates a sub­tle bag in which you can keep your cock­tail recipes handy. The col­lec­tion is a fit­ting con­cept for Rock­well, who has be­come quite the van­guard in hos­pi­tal­ity de­sign with award-win­ning projects for W Ho­tels and Nobu restau­rants.
