Arne Jacobsen (1902-1970) architect and designer
Poul Henningsen (1894-1967) product designer
Vitor Borge (1909-2000) humorist and musician
Piet Hein (1905-1996) scientist, mathematician, inventor and poet

I did not know about this Superegg, which can stand upright on a flat surface, or on top of another superegg.  Beauciful shape.

現代デンマークを代表する4人のうち3人がデザインも手がける人たちだった、というのはなんだか嬉しいです。この切手を見るまで知らなかったけれど、ピート・ハインの楕円は美しいですね。
