Designer: Piet Hein & Bruno Mathsson
Piet Hein & Bruno Mathsson
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.
