Additional Information

Description

Essentially a merging of an oval and rectangle, the “super ellipse” shape was initially defined by Danish poet/mathematician Piet Hein as a solution to an urban planning problem in Sweden. The year was 1959, and a new motorway was replacing Stockholm’s Sergel’s Square. Improving the efficiency of traffic through the area was crucial, and Hein’s newly defined shape satisfied this need. Hein soon came to believe that the super ellipse was the most visually pleasing shape for any number of applications, including sports arenas, swimming pools and, of course, dining tables. Hein first collaborated with designer Bruno Mathsson on a line of super elliptical desks; their Super Elliptical Tables were designed for Fritz Hansen in 1968. Fritz Hansen introduced this extension version in 1988. Seating 12 people (though it’s possible to squeeze a few more in at the gently rounded “corners”), the table comes with two self-storing extension leaves. With a lighter profile than most extension tables, the Super Elliptical has polished chrome legs that support an easily cleaned white laminate top. With both leaves inserted, a subtle bowing occurs in the center of the table – this is not a defect. Full expansion is intended for special occasions; use one or no leaves for daily use. Original design and licensed manufacture by Republic of Fritz Hansen. Made in Poland.

DENMARK (1902–1971)

Arne Jacobsen bought a plywood chair designed by Charles Eames and installed it in his own studio, where it inspired one of the most commercially successful chair models in design history. The three-legged Ant Chair (1951) sold in the millions and is considered a classic today. It consists of two simple elements: tubular steel legs and a springy seat and back ...
