Ein Sofa, das in jedes Interieur passt
und trotzdem Charakter hat.

Furniture by e15 has always been free of frills and well proportioned. Nevertheless, beneath the solid surfaces, however paradox this may sound, a certain proclivity for eccentricity has always lurked. With its almost sculptural silhouette the new “Kerman” sofa designed by Farah Ebrahimi and Philipp Mainzer has a light, but also striking appearance and pays tribute to the eccentricity of avoiding frills.

Thanks to its balanced design, the settee system, which is made up of different modules, is suitable for both private homes and public spaces. In Milan it will be on show in several different combinations of seating modules, with poufs and armrests in fascinating and unique fabrics. With its highly expressive pattern, the “Iza” kilim designed by Philipp Mainzer creates an exciting contrast to the plain clarity of “Kerman”.

That a stool, to the extent that it takes the floor as the “Backenzahn™” and is made of solid wood, can still look fresh and healthy twenty years on is being demonstrated by e15 with an installation co-curated with ECAL at the brand showroom in Via Tortona. (tw)
