In 1995 Philipp Mainzer cofounded 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 furniture designs, which are identifying icons for e15 and part of permanent exhibitions in museums. Parallel to the creation of e15, Philipp Mainzer practiced architecture in New York and continued so after returning to Germany in 2001.
