"SUPER-ELLIPSE" COFFEE TABLE IN KARELIAN BIRCH BY PIET HEIN AND BRUNO MATHSSON
Original labels retained to the underside; Sweden, circa 1960s
Item # 201RHK28L 

A very good and relatively early example of Piet Hein and Bruno Mathsson's collaboration line of "Super-Ellipse", the present example is executed in a book-matched Karelian birch veneer with the underside edge of the top relieved with a slight bevel to create a thin visual line to the table. This is emphasized in the transparency of the legs, each composed of four thin steel rods that bend in a taper into substantial custom feet raised on a circular pad; all steel is finished in a brilliant chrome. The table retains all original tags to the underside.


Measurements: 20 1/2" H x 45 1/4" D x 63" W

Condition Report:
Veneer chips to either end of the table top; some overall fading to the surface; light scuffs and scratches, minor use indicators; chrome in overall good condition with trace pitting and rust. A fine presentation.
