Authentic Baby Rocket Stool in Oak with Black Lacquer by Eero Aarnio & Artek

About

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. Eero Aarnio (born 1932) is one of the great innovators of modern furniture design. Responsible for an array of distinct and visually striking work, Aarnio helped establish Finland in the international design market. A one-man workshop, his work encompasses interior design, industrial design, graphic art, and photography. In the 1960s, Aarnio began experimenting with plastics, vivid colours, and organic forms, breaking away from traditional conventions. His now iconic plastic creations include the Ball (1963), the Pastil (1968), and the Bubble (1968), pop art chairs that captured the spirit of the age.  Over his long and remarkable career, Aarnio has refused to follow the rules, saying, “A chair must be comfortable for sitting, and after that everything is free.”  Today, Aarnio’s work is included in the collections of the world’s most prestigious museums, including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the MoMA in New York, and the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein.

About The Maker

Artek was founded in Helsinki in 1935 by four young idealists: Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl. Their goal was “to sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of living by exhibitions and other educational means.” The name Artek is a synthesis of "art" and ‘technology’ – concepts central to the international modernist movement that came to prominence in the 1920s. It was Walter Gropius, a key proponent of modernism, who coined the motto ‘art and technology – a new unity.’ Technology was understood to include science and industrial production methods, while the conception of art extended beyond the fine arts to encompass architecture and design. Modernism aimed to achieve a fruitful union of these two spheres. This same aspiration guided the founders of Artek in their naming of the company. In keeping with the radical spirit of its founders, Artek today remains an innovative player in the world of modern design, developing new products at the intersection of design, architecture, and art. The Artek collection consists of furniture, lighting, and accessories designed by Finnish masters and leading international designers. It stands for clarity, functionality, and poetic simplicity.
