e15 at imm cologne, 14 – 20 January 2019

At imm cologne 2019, e15 debuts a fresh view to modern needs of living and working with its latest collaboration with British architect David Chipperfield, and showcases a refined perspective of the collection with works from Philipp Mainzer, Farah Ebrahimi and Stefan Diez.

As 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus, we also reflect on its founding principals and multidisciplinary ideals. As a modern German brand e15 represents the continuation of shared modernist principles, but is also inspired to evolve and integrate with a multicultural world that values the environment, quality over quantity and the experimental spirit.

e15 continues its collaboration with David Chipperfield and the development of the original trestle table BASIS into a modular workstation.

Focusing on the needs of creative and functional work environments, BASIS workstation is a smart and casual desk system stripped back to the essentials whilst featuring the pure use of material and craftsmanship. As a high table BASIS is available with square or round top allowing for various interpretations in private and public spaces. BASIS workstation does not interfere with or redefine work habits, yet it facilitates different styles of working.


BASIS workstation is equipped with diverse possibilities for wire management and various types of partitions for privacy as well as acoustic or magnetic features that can be easily inserted into the table without use of additional hardware. Offering flexible solutions for the home or office, BASIS workstation is designed to allow solo work as well as collaboration by combining any number of individual desks to
work islands.


The classic e15 table ASHIDA by Philipp Mainzer is scalable and adaptable to any required situation.

Offering a modern view on elegance, e15 showcases its first oval shaped solid wood table. With a streamlined form ASHIDA emphasises e15’s philosophy of refined simplicity and pure use of materials for its tables. Suitable for dining or conference, its balanced proportions highlight the natural beauty and strength of solid wood. Available in European walnut and oak in oiled or white pigmented surfaces, ASHIDA is also well suited as a conference table with individual wire management solutions.


Based on enduring qualities and the experimental spirit, e15 introduces new material and colour collages for the collection.

With a fresh view to modern needs of living and working, we illustrate our perspective with a series of material collages for the collection. The familiar Bauhaus palette serves as the starting point and inspiration for a richer, more saturated combination of shades and textures. Mixing light and dark tones inspired by nature such as Lapis blue, Carnelian, Turquoise and Ochre result in refreshing and surprising combinations.


Inspired by the contemporary values of Bauhaus, e15 is staged in a smart and glamorous presentation.

Consistent with modern principles but also in keeping with unpretentious and elegant environments, our presentation at imm cologne 2019 by PHILIPP MAINZER OFFICE FOR ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN is inspired by the elegant streamline modernist movement, adding a formal rigour to the casual approach of the present. The existing black concrete floor of the fair serves as a basic foundation for living and working areas with interlocking rooms and tall curving walls, painted in Library Love, a rich warm grey tone from Caparol Icons balancing the presentation in harmony and contrast.
