Description

Eero Aarnio studied at the Art and Design School in Helsinki with Ilmari Tapiovaara as his teacher. At the beginning the 60es Aarnio experimented with new materials that allowed him whole forms of art and design. The first result was the legendary fiberglass Ball Chair with its unique form. Shortly after that he designed the Bubble Chair of crystal clear acrylic.

Rather unusual for Aarnio was then the Rocket bar stool, a later design, from the year 1995.

This high quality stool consists of oak wood and it is available in a soaped version, as well as black or white lacquered. The Baby Rocket stool has height of 45 cm, which is the reason why it is comfortable to sit on it a a table.

This stool is also available as Barhocker in a bigger edition.

Available in different colours.

My absolute favourite stool - becomes more and more beautiful with the years!

After I am already the proud owner of a white baby rocket stool, a black stool was also due. What's the matter with you? I don't know a prettier one. Made of wonderful solid wood, wonderfully cuddly and with a surface quality that is second to none: Artek has the knack with its products and that's exactly why I'm a big fan of this Finnish brand. Unagitated pieces of furniture with the typical Nordic pinch of cosiness and casualness that we Germans appreciate so much. In this case with the Baby Rocket I particularly like the beautifully round shapes. A stool that flatters the eye even before you have even sat on it. The finish is absolutely clean, the surfaces are wonderfully smooth and the whole piece is an absolute hand-catcher in itself. Ideal as a side table, as a dessert or as a shelf. In black, beyond that still wonderfully timeless. And on top of that it is absolutely tilt proof. You'd get drunk to fall off that stool. I love him and I don't want to give him up anymore. A dream! From me therefore: very big buy recommendation. Very good price-performance ratio!

My absolute favorite stool

After initial skepticism I can't imagine my household without the Artek Baby Rocket Stool. It's really as pretty as it looks on the pictures. But above all, it's incredibly practical. On the one hand because it is made of solid material - that makes it infinitely robust and easy to clean. On the other hand, because it has such a universal shape - this allows it to look just as good next to the bed as a bedside table as it does as a shelf or side table. Yes, and even as a stool, it works fine for me. There are no problems with stability. I use it every now and then with a small seat cushion on it to sit at my desk when I feel like it. Conclusion: A purchase for life, which will probably accompany me for a long time to come. Full recommendation to buy!

Best stool ever! A few years ago, the Artek company was completely unknown in this country and with it products like this ingenious stool. Thank God that's in the past now. And the Baby Rocket is the best example of this. Because I don't even know what I should do with it, this piece of furniture is so universal that it can be used. It serves me as a storage table, as a bedside table, as a sofa table, as a stool and as a shelf. No matter how it is used, this stool always cuts a fine figure: simple shape, ingenious design. The three legs provide a very secure stand. And the seat is so wonderfully natural that it is a pleasure to touch it with your hands. In addition, this stool has a truly discreet appearance - it is pleasantly discreet and therefore fits into almost any ambience. Not too heavy to place elsewhere with a short hand, the Baby Rocket is for me one of the most beautiful and practical pieces of furniture in the entire household.

Very nice stool

... made of very high quality material. Looks great, only the stability leaves a lot to be desired. The chair was intended for the children's room, but must now be used somewhere else. And recently grandpa suddenly sat on the floor. Rather look at yum than sit yum suitable!

But not as filigree and minimalistic as I had expected from the photo and therefore unfortunately unsuitable for its intended place. Seat surface surprisingly comfortable, but structure (of our specimen) restless and of the haptics rather "rough". The legs are finer ground. All in all harmonious, but in the direction of country house style. It's bombproof, as far as I can tell.
