The table series includes the Super-Elliptical the Super-Circular Circular Square and Rectangular tables designed by Piet Hein Bruno Mathsson and Arne Jacobsen. The most prominent member of the series the Super-Elliptical table was inspired by the designer Piet Hein's solution to a traffic problem at Sergels Torg in Stockholm; A super elliptical roundabout. The ingenious shape was conceived in his mathematical mind. This variation of an oval possessed some attractive qualities and looked surprisingly harmonious no matter the size. The formula based shape has no ends and this is why the Super-Elliptical table can be seen as a democratic table where everyone has an equal position. Bruno Mathsson and Arne Jacobsen contributed to the base design of all the tables.
The Table Series comes in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. With very few exceptions the tables are all available in three finishes: laminate veneer or linoleum. The laminate is available in three colours: white black or grey. veneer is available in beech or walnut. Linoleum always comes in black. Depending on the shape of the table there is a choice of two types of bases: span legs (two heights) in chromed or black chromed steel a 4 or 6 star base (in three heights) with a satin polished aluminium foot and a satin chromed steel pedestal or a shaker base in satin polished aluminium. A lower table height is also available at 70cm.
