The Fatima chest of drawers designed by Philipp Mainzer for e15 is part of a profoundly elegant group of storage pieces that Mainzer developed between 1999 to 2002 – each a celebration of the aesthetics of solid wood engendered by the precise and thoughtful arrangement of the material’s natural grain and striations. The Fatima chest of drawers not only provides a practical storage solution, but it also becomes a sculptural focal point in any interior in which it is placed.
The Fatima chest of drawers features a composition in .75” thick solid wood. The three drawer panels have been cleverly fabricated with an integrated end-to-end horizontal indented strip that functions as a handle. Each drawer has been fitted with special hardware that allows for the drawers’ gentle automatic closure. The Fatima chest’s simple rectilinear base frame is composed of .75” thick squared tubular brushed stainless steel that has been beautifully mitered at 45 degrees to create the base’s four right angles.
The Fatima chest of drawers is available in a choice of northern European oiled oak or walnut.
Born in Germany, Philipp Mainzer studied product design at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, and architecture at the Architectural Association both in London. In 1995 Philipp Mainzer co-founded the modern furniture brand e15. Having established the progressive, enduring philosophy and unique branding of e15, he has received international awards for many of his designs, which are identifying icons for e15 and part of several permanent exhibitions in museums. Parallel to the creation of e15, Philipp Mainzer practiced architecture in New York and continues to do so since his return to Germany in 2001. He is a member of the executive committee of German Design Council and regularly gives lectures on architecture, design, and branding.
