Rocket Bar Stool

design Eero Aarnio, 1995

Rocket Bar Stool has a strong, playful character. Crafted in solid oak and originally created for Finnish designer Eero Aarnio’s home kitchen, the bar stool has proved very popular since its introduction by Artek. 

Aarnio has created many notable pieces over a career that spans five decades. While Aarnio is not primarily known for his wood products, Rocket is a testament to his mastery of the medium. A smaller version, Baby Rocket Stool, is also available.
