Designed by Eero Aarnio, 1995
The Rocket Stool blends a simple circular seat and cylindrical body with legs that resemble the base of a rocket ship. The legs, which feature narrow tops and feet, are connected by a trio of smaller pins that echo the legs themselves. The pens not only connect the stool legs, but also provide a small footrest for added comfort.
Although a fairly recent design, the Rocket Stool is reminiscent of classic designs like Alvar Aalto’s Stool 60, keeping with the tradition of Artek’s minimalist, refined style. The Rocket Stool can be used as additional seating in a living room or as a side table.
