David Chipperfield extends furniture range for e15 with minimal table and sideboard

Architect David Chipperfield has continued his foray into furniture design with a wooden coffee table and sideboard for German brand e15.

The pieces join a collection already launched by Chipperfield at Milan design week 2015, which included a table, bench and stool made from solid wooden planks.


The architect's Leighton coffee table follows a similar approach and is made from solid panels of wood. Its top rests on two slanted legs, joined by a central crossbar, and is available in walnut or oak.

The Drayton sideboard echoes the form of the table, also resting on a pair of angled legs made from solid planks. The piece comes in four different lengths.


Chipperfield's designs are part of a range of new pieces launched by e15, which includes a collection of stoneware based on traditional pottery from the Frankfurt region and a table with square legs designed by the brand's co-founder Philipp Mainzer.


In addition to his collaboration with e15, Chipperfield's furniture designs include a series of bronze and steel cabinets that referenced the forms of Ancient Greek architecture, which were displayed at London's David Gill Gallery earlier this year.


The British architect is currently involved in several building projects, including his first residential tower in New York, which is clad in speckled concrete panels, and the design of Stockholm's Nobel Center.


In 2015, he completed a pair of holiday villas overlooking Italy's largest lake and a single-storey house designed as a "large earthwork" that was named world's best new house by the UK's Architectural Review magazine.


The e15 collection will be exhibited at furniture show imm Cologne, which runs from 18 to 24 January 2016.
