Rare Superellipse Conference, Dining Table. Bruno Mathsson, Hein. SOLD
This table is - SOLD

This is an early, "Superellipse" conference or dining table in very rare and beautiful Masur Birch. This is the original version of the ingeniously designed table by Bruno Mathsson and Piet Hein in a collaboration between Mathsson International AB in Sweden and Fritz Hansen in Denmark, which would later be know as the "Super-Elliptical". The table was originally released in 1966, and I estimate this table to be from the late 1960s or early 1970s.

This is a long table with two leaves. With both leaves installed it can seat 12 in a conference setting, or comfortably fit 10 as a dinning table with one chair at the ends.
Masur Birch is probably the rarest veneer option offered (no longer available), so in combination with also being the longest version ever offered, this is a very uncommon table indeed! The grain is incredibly textured and intricate. The northern Scandinavian wood species has figuring similar to burl and has the shimmering characteristics of Birdseye Maple, with velvety tan and golden colors with contrasting dark bursts.
In expanded form this table sits on ten, spring-tension chrome legs (six legs when shorten), all of which are in excellent condition.
The table measure 149.5" Long with both leaves in, and 94.5" Long without the leaves. 47.25" Deep x about 27.25" Tall.
The table is in excellent original condition. Only minor, normal wear is present. The original manufacturer labels are present on the bottom.
