e15 was founded in 1995 in London by the architect Philipp Mainzer and the designer Florian Asche. The name was taken from the postal code of the London borough where they set up their first workshop. To satisfy the growing demand for their designs and to offer better service, they relocated close to Frankfurt a few years ago.
The nature and appearance of materials, preferentially solid European woods, stainless steel and aluminium, determine the design of the individual pieces. The products of e15 convince by their explicitness, details and clarity. They allow the materials to unfold their true form and beauty. Among the most noted products of the e15 collection are the table »TA04 BIGFOOT« and the stool »ST04 BACKENZAHN«, both in solid European oak, as well as the widely admired furniture series by the Belgian sculptor Hans De Pelsmacker. Regular projects with various artists also augment e15’s image. Recently, for example, cooperation with the German fashion designer Bernhard Willhelm resulted in the »WILLHELM TABLE«.
