E15 DEBUTS NEW RELEASES BY DESIGNER STEFAN DIEZ AND PRESENTS INSPIRING NEW SHADES AND FABRICS FOR ITS COLLECTION
With a gallery style presentation e15 debuts its collection of new releases in April at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2011 in addition to the exhibition in its showroom on Via Tortona in Milan. For the new releases presentation in Milan e15 extends the successful collaboration with designer Stefan Diez, introducing the compact and versatile lounge chair EC04 LEO, a new upholstered and contract version of the chair CH04 HOUDINI with armrest and the complementing stool ST11 DASH to accommodate the EC03 EUGENE lounge chair.
THE LOUNGE CHAIR EC04 LEO
At Salone del Mobile 2011, e15 introduces EC04 LEO, a compact and versatile lounge chair showcased in Milan in fresh shades of nude, khaki, honey yellow and in the new European walnut veneer. Taking up the aesthetics and produc- tion technique of the side chair, EC04 LEO is a natural continuation of the CH04 HOUDINI seating family, reflecting its abstract organic form and the modern use in material. With a wide and comfortable seat shell that exudes lightness and leisure and with its small dimensions, EC04 LEO, also made from flexible lacquered oak or European walnut veneer is the perfect side and complementing small lounge chair. EC04 LEO is ideally suited for most living and public spaces, working as a complementing seating item for the sofa SF05 BESS or SF03 SHIRAZ, or as an individual piece on its own.
NEW UPHOLSTERED AND CONTRACT VERSION CH04 HOUDINI
With particular focus on the contract market, e15 introduces an upholstered version of the chair CH04 HOUDINI with a distinctive upholstered armrest, offering five fixed upholstered contract versions whilst providing for optimised costs and larger commissions. A wide range of fabrics and leather will also be available for more individual choices in the upholste- red version of the CH04 HOUDINI. The upholstery of the seat, inside back along with the armrest, offers ample com- fort and padding for CH04 HOUDINI whilst not covering the chair’s form and aesthetics. The upholstering and armrest padding respond to the special requirements of the contract market whilst also adding an artistic dimension to the chair. E15 offers its CH04 HOUDINI CONTRACT with armrest in upholstered combinations of contract proof Trevira CS, wool, cotton and soft, durable leather.
THE STOOL ST11 DASH
Complementing the comfortable and iconic EC03 EUGENE lounge chair, e15 introduces the stool ST11 DASH in Milan, also made from flexible oak- or European walnut-veneered and lacquered plywood. The rectangular stool, reflecting key details and proportions of EC03 EUGENE, takes up the seat height of the lounge chair as well as the rounded finishes of the seat in its front sides, offering perfect leg comfort. The optional seat cushion CU11 DASH S offers additional padding for the stool.
COLOURS AND FABRICS BY FARAH EBRAHIMI
In collaboration with designer Farah Ebrahimi, e15 introduces at Salone del Mobile 2011 a range of fresh shades and fabric combinations for the entire Stefan Diez seating series along with offering new fabrics and leather for upholstered products suitable for public and private spaces. Each shade of material and fabric was carefully selected with a variety of needs and moods in mind.
With the intention to create a subtle and elegant atmosphere while avoiding the generic, Farah Ebrahimi developed a new selection of colours and material surfaces for the e15 collection. Creating an unpredictable contrast to the existing shades of neon red and bright blue, a subtle and daring shade of nude, a utilitarian shade of khaki, a brassy shade of honey yellow, a dark shade of Umbra grey and luxurious European walnut interact and balance with the existing colour range of natural oak, white, black and grey in an inspiring and original way. Fabrics in various textures and patterns along with soft leathers in shades of cognac, olive and espresso compliment the range, creating a unique and enduring impres- sion with a variety of moods - from classic to modern – for the entire e15 collection.
