Regarding material and form, Philipp Mainzer’s Anton table illustrates an uncompromising focus on the essentials. The table top has been constructed using eight solid wood planks and is only 20 MM (3/4 INCH) thick. The walnut tabletop consists of 11 planks. The legs have a diameter of 30 MM (1 1/8 INCH), are removable, and come in powder-coated or brushed stainless steel.
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.
