About The Designer:
A most unlikely designer, Piet Hein was recognised as many things - an inventor, a mathematician, an author, and even a Resistance figure in the Second World War. And yet, some of his award-winning designs are well-known to this day.
Piet’s early life reflected his general brilliance, as he switched effortless between Arts school and a combined degree in philosophy and theoretical physics. His “grooks”, or short poems, became part of Danish life through the 1930s and even into the War.
Among his most recognised achievements was his post-war invention of the superellipse. While it was used to solve a Swedish traffic problem, it was also the basis for one of his most notable designs: the Super Ellipse Table. The superellipse has forever been associated with Hein, even though other designers have borrowed the shape for their own works. However, it was far from his only foray into industrial design, with Hein’s pieces including lamps, vases, chairs and even bowls and plates.
