Anuncio

Piet Hein fue un ingeniero, escritor, artista, filósofo, diseñador e inventor danés. Es conocido especialmente por sus gruks, poesías filosóficas cortas[2]​ o aforismos escritas, originalmente bajo el seudónimo de Kumbel Kumbell, mientras estaba en la clandestinidad por haber presidido la Unión Anti-Nazi de su país justo antes de la ocupación de Dinamarca por los nazis en 1940 y publicadas en Politiken.[3]​

A principios de la década de 1930, patentó el Cubo Soma,[4]​ un rompecabezas de disección sólido y a principios de la década de 1940, inventó el abstracto Polygon, una versión del cual fue desarrollada de forma independiente por John Nash unos años más tarde. Tras haberlo presentado en una conferencia para matemáticos en la Universidad de Copenhagen durante un discurso sobre las matemáticas para juegos, Hein presentaba un problema a resolver para el juego dos veces a la semana en Politiken, durante cuatro meses .[5]​ El nombre Hex fue puesto por Parker Brothers en 1952 cuando lanzaron su versión del juego, Hex, como juego de tablero.[5]​

Aunque su nombre está también estrechamente relacionado con la superelipse, una figura geométrica incorporada por su amigo, el arquitecto sueco David Helldén, en el diseño para la plaza Sergel de Estocolmo a comienzos de la década de 1960, no fue Hein quien lo había creado, sino el matemático francés Gabriel Lamé. Hein incorporó esta figura también en su colaboración con el diseñador de muebles y arquitecto sueco Bruno Mathsson.[6]​

De 1948-1949 fue presidente de la sección danesa del World Movement for World Federal Government, el antecesor del actual Movimiento Federalista Mundial.[7]​

Había colaborado con Hendrik Casimir durante la estancia de este en Copenhagen en 1930[8]​ y sus amistades incluían a Albert Einstein y al matemático Norbert Wiener quien, a mediados de la década de 1960, terminó de preparar su libro Dios y Golem S.A. en casa de Hein en Rungsted, un barrio de Hørsholm.[9]​

Fue doctor honoris causa por las universidades de Yale[10]​ y Odense.[7]​

Era descendiente del almirante y corsario neerlandés Pieter Pietersen Heyn, también conocido como Piet Hein.[6]​[11]​

Frases Piet Hein

„Art is the creative process and it goes through all fields.“

— Piet Hein
Context: After all, what is art? Art is the creative process and it goes through all fields. Einstein’s theory of relativity — now that is a work of art! Einstein was more of an artist in physics than on his violin. Art is this: art is the solution of a problem which cannot be expressed explicitly until it is solved. As quoted in Man Creates Art Creates Man (1973) by Duane Preble, p. 14 Variant translation: Art is solving problems that cannot be formulated before they have been solved. The shaping of the question is part of the answer. As quoted in Architecture: form, space, and order (2007) by Francis D.K. Ching, p. ix

„But we are in a straitjacket, having to accept one or the other, when often some intermediate form would be better.“

— Piet Hein
Context: Man is the animal that draws lines which he himself then stumbles over. In the whole pattern of civilization there have been two tendencies, one toward straight lines and rectangular patterns and one toward circular lines. There are reasons, mechanical and psychological, for both tendencies. Things made with straight lines fit well together and save space. And we can move easily — physically or mentally — around things made with round lines. But we are in a straitjacket, having to accept one or the other, when often some intermediate form would be better. As quoted in Scandinavian Review (2003), by the American-Scandinavian Foundation, p. 18
