Design Philipp Mainzer, 1999
European oak or European walnut, stainless steel
Made in Germany by E-15

To ensure comfortable sitting combined with clear lines, the backrest and seat have a curved shape. The refined 15 x 15 mm (5/8 x 5/8 inch) thick, brushed stainless steel legs are connected by a cross-bracket underneath the seat. The backrest is attached by means of a section of the steel frame inserted into a hole provided at the bottom of the backrest. Therefore only the essential details are visible, lending the chair a modern appearance. The seat height is 470 mm (18 1/2 inch). This chair is not stackable.

Born in Hamburg, Philipp Mainzer studied product design at Central Saint Martins University and architecture at the Architectural Association University in London. In 1995 Philipp Mainzer established e15 with Florian Asche. After completing various interior design projects in England, he worked in New York as an architect. Today, he is managing partner and creative director of e15.

Please note that European walnut can be lighter in color than American walnut so there will be a wide range of color variation. Also, during the seasoning of solid wood, the wood forms their characteristic cracks, which make every piece unique. These are part of the design (since e15 wants to use as much wood as possible from each trunk) and are not defects.

19.6" w | 17" L | 31.5" h | seat: 18.5" h

Hans Wegner

Hans Jørgensen Wegner’s (1914 - 2007) high-quality and thoughtful work contributed to the international popularity of mid-century Danish design. His style is often described as Organic Functionality, a modernist school with emphasis on functionality, arising primarily in Scandinavian countries. In his lifetime, he designed over 500 different chairs, over 100 of which were put into mass production, with many recognizable icons among them. Born to cobbler Peter M. Wegner, he worked as a child apprentice to Master cabinetmaker H. F. Stahlberg. With an affinity for wood, he attended the Danish School of Arts and Crafts and the Architectural Academy in Copenhagen. In 1936, he began studies at what is now The Danish Design School, with O. Mølgaard Nielsen as teacher.
German furniture brand E15 was co-founded in 1995 by architect Philipp Mainzer and is known for using solid wood in its purest form, with no treatment to “correct” the natural markings of the wood. Their debut collection featured a groundbreaking refined simplicity that would influence future design. Some notable examples of this approach include the TA04 Bigfoot table and the ST04 Backenzahn stool.
