The KAZIMIR table, designed by Phillip Mainzer for e15, is a striking fusion of bold geometric forms and exclusive materials like European oak, unfilled travertine, galvanized zinc, brushed brass, and powder-coated steel. This unique design takes inspiration from Suprematist compositions, resulting in a generously proportioned table that ranges in length from approximately 2000mm to 3600mm. Its versatility makes it suitable for both private and public spaces.
In addition to the standard KAZIMIR table, e15 also offers the KAZIMIR ‘RAW’ version. This iteration showcases solid wood boards with widths of up to 250mm, revealing the brushed natural edges of the wood. This design choice emphasizes the raw, natural beauty of the materials used.
The construction of the KAZIMIR table aligns with e15’s core philosophy of consistent, forward-thinking design, employing high-quality materials and innovative handcrafted production methods. This results in a unique and visually captivating piece of furniture that can enhance various environments.

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.
