e15 stands for consistent, progressive design coupled with high-grade materials and innovative, handcrafted production methods. As a quality modern brand that caters to a global home and contract market, e15 maintains a comprehensive approach to interiors, offering a distinct collection that is compatible with diverse environments. With a strong foundation in architecture and design, e15 is defined by the unique backgrounds of its co-founder and architect Philipp Mainzer together with designer and art director Farah Ebrahimi. In close cooperation with a coterie of designers, architects and artists, e15 develops original products and supports artistic statements, which reflect the brand’s philosophy and its open approach to diverse cultures and disciplines.
Named after the postal code of its first workshop in London, the company was founded in 1995. A radical, new simplicity marked the debut of the collection, leaving an indelible mark for the company and the history of modern design. With essential forms, baring all natural markings and characteristics as visible in design classics such as the table BIGFOOT™ and the stool BACKENZAHN™, e15 has established a leading reputation for the pioneering use of solid wood in its purest form.
With headquarters based in Frankfurt, e15 holds a worldwide retailer network with over 600 partners as well as flagship showrooms in Frankfurt and Milan. In addition to the collection of furniture, lighting and accessories, e15 collaborates with PHILIPP MAINZER OFFICE FOR ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN to provide architectural and interior design services, realising projects on an international scale.
