Modern Furniture & Lighting

Named after the postal code of its first workshop in London, e15 was founded in 1995. A radical, new simplicity marked the debut of its furniture collection, leaving an indelible mark for the company and the history of modern design. Using fundamental forms that bear natural markings as visible in design classics such as table BIGFOOT™ and stool BACKENZAHN™, e15 has established a leading reputation for the pioneering use of solid wood in its purest form.

As a modern brand that caters to a global home and contract market, e15 maintains a comprehensive approach to interiors developing everything from furniture and lighting to textiles and stoneware. With a strong foundation in architecture and design, e15 is defined by the unique backgrounds of co-founder and architect Philipp Mainzer together with designer and art director Farah Ebrahimi.

Today, the company holds a worldwide network of premium retailers as well as a flagship showroom in Frankfurt. For the production of the collection, e15 works with specialized workshops in Germany mainly, as well as other selected European countries, and adheres to environmental acceptability as an integral element of its products.
