#8220;Superellipse#8221; Conference Table by Bruno Mathsson-Piet Hein for Karl Mathsson International, Sweden (1964 – 1967). Made in steel and veneered birch. In 1968 Fritz Hansen, Denmark put the table into production and still is part of their collection. Today the tables come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and are offered in 3 finishes: laminate, veneer and linoleum with a base in either chromed or satin chromed steel.
The Super-Elliptical Table was inspired by the designer Piet Hein’s solution to a traffic problem at Sergels Torg in Stockholm: A super elliptical roundabout. The ingenious shape was conceived in his mathematical mind. This variation of an oval possessed some attractive qualities and looked surprisingly harmonious no matter the size. The formula based shape has no ends and this is why the Super-Elliptical table can be seen as a democratic table where everyone has an equal position.
