In terms of material and form, Philipp Mainzer’s Anton table for e15 exemplifies an unwavering commitment to the fundamentals. The oak tabletop is crafted from eight solid wood planks, measuring a mere 20 millimeters (3/4 inch) in thickness. Meanwhile, the walnut tabletop is composed of 11 planks. The legs, with a diameter of 30 millimeters (1 1/8 inch), are detachable and offer the choice of a powder-coated or brushed stainless steel finish. This minimalistic design underscores the essence of simplicity and functionality.
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 he 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, 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.
