or Call to Order

Designed by Philipp Mainzer for e15, the Ponte High Table is a testa­ment to excep­tional crafts­man­ship and versa­tile design. This high table boasts a 1.6″ solid wood top, exuding a robust and substan­tial pres­ence. The sides of the table are a result of metic­u­lous construc­tion, compris­ing a total of five boards. What sets the Ponte table apart is the unique detail where the ends of the top expanse are milled to half of the thick­ness and precisely fit into the verti­cal sides, creat­ing a seam­less and visu­ally striking connection.

The table expanse gains stabil­ity and integrity through the support of two under­side cross beams that are thought­fully oriented toward the center. This construc­tion not only ensures dura­bil­ity but also adds a distinc­tive design element to the table.

The Ponte High Table is avail­able in 1.6″ thick solid wood, with options includ­ing north­ern Euro­pean oiled oak or walnut. The Ponte series is an excel­lent choice for both resi­den­tial and contract projects, and it even accom­mo­dates e15’s newly intro­duced wire manage­ment system, making it a versa­tile and func­tional addi­tion to any space. Whether for dining, working, or gath­er­ing, the Ponte High Table combines design excel­lence with practicality.
