Authentic Rocket Bar Stool in Oak with Black Lacquer by Eero Aarino & Artek

About

Authentic rocket bar stool in oak with black lacquer by Eero Aarino & Artek. 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. Price is per item. Handmade to order in Finland. Current configuration shown is in Oak with Black Lacquer. The Rocket Stool is also available in natural oak and oak with white lacquer. Please specify when ordering. In-stock lead time 9-10 weeks. Out of stock lead time up to an additional 8 weeks or more. Please note that inventory can change at any time. For time sensitive orders, please inquire prior to purchasing.
