The Ponte table designed by Philipp Mainzer for e15 features a 1.6” solid wood top and sides are made up of a total of seven to eight boards (depending upon depth selected). The horizontal and vertical planes of the Ponte table are joined through a distinctive detail where the ends of the top expanse are milled to half of the thickness and precisely fit into the vertical sides. The table expanse is further supported by two underside cross beams that are oriented toward the center. Ponte to be used as either a dining table or a desk. Its form and joint details make the table an ideal choice to pair with Mainzer’s Calle bench.
The Ponte table features construction in 1.6” thick solid wood available in a choice of northern European oiled oak or walnut. The Ponte is available in nine sizes – each with a depth choice of 31.1” or 36.15”
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.
