The company’s history began in 1994, when it was founded in London by the German architect Philipp Mainzer, who chose the particular name taking up the postal code of the district where the first laboratory was located. The first products, designed by Mainzer himself, reveal to the world a new way of conceiving the design of wood, far from any decorative yet elegant elegance. Products like the Bigfoot table and the Backenzahn stool, designed by Mainzer himself, are now considered true classics.
In 1997 e15 moved its headquarters to Germany, beginning to gradually expand the production and to introduce new materials and designers, up to receiving several awards for furniture such as the Seam One lamp by Mark Holmes, the Houdini chair by Stefan Diez , the Enoki coffee table by Philipp Mainzer and the Arie bookcase by Arik Levy. These are flanked by a wide range of tables, the brand’s core business, such as the Platz models by Jörg Schellmann and Kazimir by Philipp Maizner.
