Born in Germany, Philipp Mainzer studied product design at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, and architecture at the Architectural Association in London. In 1995, Philipp Mainzer co-founded the furniture brand e15, named after the Hackney postal code in which he produced early designs including the Bigfoot table.
Having established the progressive, enduring philosophy and unique branding of e15, he has received international awards for many of his designs. Many of which are identifying icons for e15 and part of several permanent exhibitions in museums globally. Parallel to the creation of e15, Philipp Mainzer practised architecture in New York and continues to do so since his return to Germany in 2001.
