or Call to Order

The Taro bench is char­ac­ter­ized by its strong recti­lin­ear form, the designer’s treat­ment of the seating plane makes it very special. The designer has curved the seat inward from the sides creat­ing a subtle concave surface for the entire hori­zon­tal expanse. Not only is this visu­ally engag­ing, but it also makes sitting on the Taro bench consid­er­ably more comfortable.

Philipp Mainzer

Germany (1969)

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.
