The Piet Hein chair from Sibast was named after its designer: Danish designer Piet Hein developed the chair for almost a decade, completing it in 1968. However, it took more than 50 years before the chair was finally taken into production by Sibast Furniture.

The design of the Piet Hein chair revolves around a superellipse – an elliptical form named by Hein himself, which he first used in the famous roundabout on Sergels Torg in Stockholm. Hein was, in fact, a polymath, whose career ranged from mathematics and architecture to poetry. He later utilized the harmonious elliptical shape in many other works, such as in the seat and back of the Piet Hein chair.

The seat material of the Piet Hein chair is bent wood veneer, and the dynamically positioned, slightly sloping legs are made of steel. Thanks to the stackable frame and the slender yet sturdy design, the Piet Hein chairs are well suited for both home and restaurant use.

Piet Hein

Piet Hein (1905–1996) was a Danish polymath, who worked as a poet, architect, designer, mathematician, inventor as well as game designer. Growing up in Copenhagen, Hein was driven by a widespread interest in the world: he studied art, philosophy and theoretical physics in various schools, but never completed a degree. During World War II, he joined the Danish resistance movement against Germany and began publishing popular aphorisms called “grooks” under the pseudonym Kumbel Kumbell – during his career, he wrote more than 10,000 grooks in total.

After the war, Hein became known for launching the superellipse, a geometric form combining an ellipse and a rectangle, which he used in the Sergel Square roundabout in Stockholm as well as in various furniture and product designs. Hein received many awards for his work, such as the Aarestrup Medal, the Danish ID Prize and honorary doctorates from the Yale and Odense Universities.
