The Mo bed by Philipp Mainzer, available in both American queen and king sizes, instantly transforms any space. The associated hardness of the material itself becomes a sophisticated and unexpected foil to the expected softness of the linens used in conjunction with dressing the bed. The Mo bed is constructed of solid European oiled walnut, oak or white waxed oak that is 1.6” thick. The frame height is 9.9” above the floor and provides a standard recessed depth of 4” into which the mattress sits atop slatted support frames.
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.
