e15 stands for progressive design coupled with high-grade materials and innovative production methods. As a modern furniture brand that caters to a global home and contract market, e15 maintains a comprehensive approach to interiors. Its strong foundation in architecture and design is defined by the unique backgrounds of its co-founders, architect Philipp Mainzer and designer and art director Farah Ebrahimi. In close collaboration with a coterie of designers, architects, and artists, e15 develops original products and supports artistic statements that reflect the brand’s embrace of diverse cultures and disciplines.
Named after the postal code of its first workshop in London, the company was founded in 1995. A radical simplicity marked the debut of the collection and would significantly shape the brand’s aesthetic approach. With essential forms baring all natural markings and characteristics, e15 has established a leading reputation for the pioneering use of solid wood. Among its offerings are design classics such as the BIGFOOT™ table and the BACKENZAHN™ stool, both designed by Mainzer in the mid-1990’s. These icons stand out for their geometric simplicity, unique details, and celebration of wood in its purest form.
Today, the company holds a worldwide network of premium retailers as well as flagship showrooms in Frankfurt and Milan. For the production of the collection, e15 works with specialized workshops mainly in Germany as well as other selected European countries and adheres to environmental standards, an integral element of its products. Context Gallery has been a trusted partner with e15 for over 10 years.
