B613 Super Ellipse Table - Replica

Piet Hein Super Ellipse Table follows the simplistic and functional principles inherent to Danish design. The inspiration behind this practical piece is an elliptical roundabout in Stockholm, created to solve the traffic issue in the city. Created in 1968, the Super Ellipse Table has a sleek, uncluttered top with a thin wooden border, complemented by simple legs, which separate ingeniously, creating a beautiful way of supporting the table top. This stable table construction and durable top make it an ideal piece for any corporate or domestic environment. The design characteristics of this quality replica are as near as possible to those of the original.

We produce the MDF top with a black or white lacquer coating. The Y-shaped legs are made of polished stainless steel. The Super Ellipse Table is available in two lengths and is a perfect match for the Jacobsen Series 7 Chairs and Wire Chair.

The table is available in two different sizes:

Size small: 180 cm
Size large: 220 cm

About the Designer

Piet Hein

Piet Hein

Born in Copenhagen in 1905, Piet Hein went on to become one of the twentieth century’s best-known Danes internationally. Studying both fine arts and theoretical physics in his youth, Hein found expression as both an artist and a scientist. As well as a renowned designer, Hein was an inventor, author, poet and mathematician. Combining these elements, his working method has been described as ‘architectural poetic design’. He himself explained that "Art is solution to problems which cannot be formulated clearly before they have been solved".

It was his mathematical aptitude that led Hein to propose the superellipse. In Stockholm city planning and in furniture design, this geometric solution found harmony between the circle and the square, between the ellipse and the rectangle.

Hein also sought harmony through words as an author and poet under the pseudonym Kumbel Kumbell. He wrote thousands of short poems known as ‘grooks’. Hein saw his harmonic form of poetry as poetic comment on everyday life; it has been suggested that grooks were perhaps intended as small instructions on that finest of all arts: the art of living.

Before his death in 1996, Hein was recognised and decorated for his work both nationally and internationally. Danish awards include the Industrial Design-prize (1971), Medal Ingenio et Arti (1985) and the annual prize of Danish Design Council (1989), while his international accolades include Die gute Industrieform (1971) and Nobel Lecturer (1983).
