Named after the postal code of its first workshop in London, e15 was co-founded in 1995 by architect Philipp Mainzer. A radical, new simplicity marked the debut of the collection and influenced the development of contemporary design. With essential forms, baring all natural markings and characteristics as visible in design classics such as the table TA04 BIGFOOT™ and the stool ST04 BACKENZAHN™, e15 established a leading reputation for the pioneering use of solid wood in its purest form.
Beyond the renowned use of solid wood, the company features an extensive range of refined materials and finishes. For the production of the collection and bespoke items, e15 works with selected workshops in Europe and adheres to environmental acceptability as an integral element of its products. Today, the German furniture brand is represented in over 40 countries. In addition to the furniture collection, e15 works with PHILIPP MAINZER OFFICE FOR ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN to provide architectural and interior design services, realising projects on an international scale.
