The Fritz Hansen Super-Elliptical Pedestal Base Table was inspired by designer Piet Hein’s solution to a traffic problem at Sergels Torg in Stockholm: a super elliptical roundabout. As a table, the form is harmonious and user-friendly; everyone can see everyone else around the table. Available in a variety of tabletop materials, all on a star-shaped pedestal base.
Established in 1872 in Copenhagen, Fritz Hansen has since come to epitomize the mid-century Danish Modern aesthetic. Blending craftsmanship with innovation, Fritz Hansen is particularly well-noted for their laminated and molded wood veneer furniture. Pieces from Vico Magistretti, Piero Lissoni and, especially, Arne Jacobsen have become icons of modern furniture design.

- Laminate, wood veneer or linoleum top with beveled edge profile

To this end, all authentic Fritz Hansen products come with a label that has a unique ID number, the name of the designer, the year of manufacture and origin. A personally signed certificate is also included, showing that the piece has gone through Fritz Hansen's premium quality check.
