Concept

The table series includes the Super-Elliptical™, the Super-Circular™, circular, square and rectangular tables designed by Piet Hein and Bruno Mathsson. 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. 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. Bruno Mathsson contributed to the base design of all the tables. The tables come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. With very few exceptions the tables are all available in 3 finishes: laminate, veneer and linoleum.
