Piet Hein (1905-1996)
The most beautiful geometric shape of the rectangle and ellipse? It was the task that Piet Hein put himself in a job for Stockholm's city government, and it resulted in a beautiful place called "Segels Torg" with super ellipse shape. The park was completed in 1959 and in 1968 the first Superellipse table by Piet Hein was born.

Piet Hein had many talents and he is known and loved for many of them, but central to his output is the table with super ellipse shape, as generations of families and friends have gathered around in the almost 40 years since it was produced first time.
