e15 Selected Calvert Chess Coffee Table by Ferdinand Kramer

$1,300per item

About

Calvert is from a series of coffee tables, designed by German functionalist architect Ferdinand Kramer during his time in America. Part of his successful „Knock-Down“ furniture series, it consists of a tabletop and two crossing invertible sheets serving as a base for the table. Celebrating 120 years Ferdinand Kramer, Calvert chess is based on a cardboard picnic version Kramer originally proposed for Coca-Cola in 1951. The special edition features a silkscreen black chessboard printed on natural oak lacquered.

About the Maker

E15

e15 stands for consistent, progressive design coupled with high-grade materials and innovative, handcrafted production methods. As a modern brand that caters to a global home and contract market, e15 maintains a comprehensive approach to interiors. With a strong foundation in architecture and design, e15 is defined by the unique backgrounds of its cofounder and architect Philipp Mainzer together with designer and art director Farah Ebrahimi. In close collaboration with a coterie of designers, architects and artists, e15 develops original products and supports artistic statements, which reflect the brand’s open approach to diverse cultures and disciplines. Named after the postal code of its first workshop in London, the company was founded in 1995. A radical, new simplicity marked the debut of the collection, leaving an indelible mark for the company and the history of modern design. With essential forms, baring all natural markings and characteristics as visible in design classics such as table BIGFOOT™ and stool BACKENZAHN™, e15 has established a leading reputation for the pioneering use of solid wood in its purest form.
