e15 featured in new concert hall Elbphilharmonie

For the new concert hall ‘Elbphilharmonie’ in Hamburg, architect Daniel Schöning and his office WRS ARCHITEKTEN & STADTPLANER together with German designers Eva Marguerre and Marcel Besau have developed an interior concept featuring pieces from the e15 collection of furniture and lighting. In collaboration with e15, the trio has also realised a range of custom furniture for the foyers and lounges.

With a focus on materiality, the interior concept creates a distinct and memorable impression while giving room to the sophisticated architecture by Herzog & de Meuron. Due to its monochromatic palette, the furniture integrates intuitively, forming a consistent aesthetic. For the foyers of the concert hall, Eva Marguerre, Marcel Besau and Daniel Schöning designed a product family consisting of a high table, side table and bench which was realised in collaboration with e15. Building on simple geometrical shapes, the high table and side table with marble top as well as the bench with upholstered seat in Kvadrat’s fabric Basel create a core element in the interior concept. With their powder-coated steel base in black and white and the exchangeable surfaces, the pieces are ideally suitable for contract purposes and will become part of the e15 collection in 2017.

For the Christiane and Klaus-Michael Kühne sky lounge, Eva Marguerre, Marcel Besau and Daniel Schöning developed a series of glass tables. Also realised together with e15, the bar counter, high table, dining table and side table made from translucent black glass and solid wood table tops ideally correspond with the space and its impressive views of city and harbour. Jet black side chair HOUDINI and lounge chair LEO by Stefan Diez for e15 complement the lounge and create an intriguing contrast with the architectural appearance of the tables. The installation with circular floor light NORTH by Eva Marguerre and Marcel Besau for e15 in a custom jet black version at the back of the sky lounge is a playful display of light and form.

In the exclusive circle lounge on the 13th floor, modular sofa SHIRAZ by Philipp Mainzer and Farah Ebrahimi creates a communicative and comfortable seating island.


The Elbphilharmonie was designed by the renowned Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron. Perched on top of a brick warehouse foundation, – the former Kaispeicher A, which was built at the port between 1963 and 1966 and then used for storing tea, tobacco and cocoa – the glass structure with its wave-like top rises up 110 metres high into the sky. The spectacular building houses three concert halls, a large music education area, a range of places to eat and drink, a hotel and the public Plaza, which offers visitors an unparalleled panoramic view over the whole city. Artistic quality, variety and accessibility shape the musical programme of Hamburg’s new cultural landmark. The official opening of the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg will take place on 11 and 12 January 2017.
