To celebrate 25 years of the iconic e15 ST04 Backenzahn Side Table, designer Philipp Mainzer has worked with e15 to produce a special edition.
The striking black oak finish is created by a chemical reaction between natural tannic acid and oak wood, triggered using a special mixture of ingredients. This method showcases e15’s fascination with traditional craftsmanship and the use of special manufacturing processes to create unique effects.
Born in Mainz, Germany, Philipp studied Product Design at Central Saint Martins College and Architecture at the Architectural Association in London.
During this time he established the furniture company e15 together with Florian Asche. Following to several interior and furniture projects in England and Germany he moved to New York where he works as an architect and serves as creative director for e15 and Bergman.
