Backen­zahn Stool

c. 1996

by Philipp Mainzer
for e15

The Backen­zahn stool can also func­tion as a side or occa­sional table and features a struc­ture of four post-like” legs that have been joined together to create the atyp­i­cal volume. Each of the legs has been artic­u­lated as a sepa­rate element – the narrow gap between posts becomes a cruci­form element at the top when viewed aerially.

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.
