DESCRIPTION
A rare out of production Rosewood & chrome Superellipse dining table by Piet Hein & Bruno Mathsson for Fritz Hansen.

Piet Hein was neither an architect nor a furniture designer - but a philosopher, poet, mathematician etc. He created the Superellipse as a new oval shape for the Sergel`s Square in Stockholm.

In cooperation with the Swedish designer, Bruno Mathsson, he later used the shape for the Superellipse table which Fritz Hansen put in production in 1968 and still produces today but don`t produce them in rosewood anymore.

Though he is often credited with its invention, the Danish poet and scientist Piet Hein (1905–1996) did not discover the super-ellipse. The general Cartesian notation of the form comes from the French mathematician Gabriel Lame. The base is in aluminium and its shape and style makes it look as modern today. Great with a modern or vintage chair and perfect in proportions it is the ultimate desk or work table. It has some light age related wear and is in good condition.
