Host, A New Wardrobe Concept By Sebastian Herkner For Stellar Works
Stellar Works presents its first collaboration with German designer Sebastian Herkner. Known for his unusual shapes and materiality choices, Herkner has created Host, a movable wardrobe created in response to the growing need for flexible furniture in both homes and hotels. Herkner’s design sees a metal frame that on one side provides rail space, and also becomes part of the framework for open shelving and a mirror.
Host has been designed with wheels to allow greater freedom in moving the piece around the room as space requirements change. The openness of its design allows Host to be used for a multitude of purposes, with an added small tray for personal items such as jewellery and watches. For a hotel room, Host features enough space for a suitcase and generous hanging space. Host’s minimalist steel frame is complemented by a veneer laminate base, solid wood and a large mirror.
Commenting on his design Herkner says: ‘A host takes care of their guest, with the aim to make their stay as comfortable as possible. Our intension for this wardrobe was the same, to give free space for the belongings of the guest. It is a kind of stage to place clothing, jewellery and other things in a personal way.’
