A vintage Super-Elliptical™ coffee table designed by Piet Hein, Bruno Mathsson, and Arne Jacobse and manufactured by Fritz Hansen.
The ingenious oval shape was the product of Hein’s mathematical mind in appearance, no matter the table size. The design’s lack of ends gave the ensuing Table Series a democratic profile, providing everyone around the table an “equal” position. The most prominent member of the series, 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. For nearly fifty years, the Table Series has upheld its reputation as an essential, modern design solution.
