Welcome to a company for HumanDesign®.
Welcome to Dauphin.

Dauphin solves seating problems. Throughout the world, our name is synonymous with patented innovation and ergonomic seating.

Our company philosophy focuses on people. To be precise, people who sit, so-called “homo sedens”. Whether you are large or small, work in an office or at home, or require chairs for conference rooms or reception areas, the key principle behind Dauphin’s HumanDesign® philosophy is to provide optimum seating solutions. In a word: HumanDesign® for greater comfort to ensure people's physical and mental well-being wherever they happen to sit. A fundamental part of this approach is a holistic concept which combines medicine, ergonomics, ecology, technology and design to produce a unique seating philosophy. Dauphin as a company has been a 100% subsidiary of the international Dauphin Office Interiors GmbH & Co. KG holding company since 1992. Open brand organisational chart >>
