About the designer: Piet Hein/Bruno Mathsson
Piet Hein(left), 1905-1996, was neither an architect nor a furniture designer - but a philosopher, poet and mathematician. He created the Superellipse as a new oval shape for the Sergel's Square in Stockholm. In cooperation with the Swedish designer, Bruno Mathsson (right), he later used the shape for the Superellipse table which Fritz Hansen put in production in 1968. The Spanleg series of dining tables which were the result of this pairing of minds has proven to be perennially popular and an item that Aram Store is proud to stock.
