Good design is geared around the person.

Excellent design is a precious commodity – and an intensive process: At Dauphin designs are produced by the design team, sometimes working together with external designers. This results in cleverly designed, ergonomic office chairs which are individually adapted to various work situations and can be adjusted to suit all body sizes.
