The signature of KERMAN sofa by Philipp Mainzer is a sculpted silhouette evoking ease and monumentality, which strikes a balance between elegant repose and modernist sensibilities. With the freedom to create visually expressive environments, KERMAN sofa addresses a variety of requirements in private and public spaces with different seating modules, poufs, and armrests.
Available in numerous fabrics, the modules can be flexibly combined to create small two-seaters or vast sofa landscapes using a sofa connector. Consider pairing with the Lazlo side table.
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.
