For more than 40 years, manufacturer Dauphin has provided North American, European, and other international markets with the most innovative and ergonomic office seating solutions. The company’s reputation for precisely engineered and highly functional contract furniture extends to more than 50 countries: “Since 1969, Dauphin has pursued a commitment to healthy posture and has invested in extensive R&D in the areas of health and design to expand our product portfolio to meet your changing needs.”
Principal Friedrich-Wilhelm Dauphin founded Dauphin in 1969. Inspired by his vision of creating ergonomic, healthy infrastructure in order to accommodate the rise of the computer (and the ascendance of the seated position for the average office worker), Dauphin partnered with importer Charvoz to begin distributing ergonomic seating in the U.S. In 1993, Dauphin acquired 100 percent ownership of the North American seating operations and relocated from Bavaria, Germany to Ontario, Canada. Today, Dauphin runs manufacturing facilities in New Jersey and Ontario, distributing over 4,000 units of furniture every day.
Dauphin’s seating program is outlined in four key principles: 1. Individual product families, characterized by commonality of design and function; 2. Dauphin System-Ergonomics; 3. Attractive price/performance ratios; and 4. Unsurpassed commitment to customer service. The formula has consistently resulted in attractive, appealing, and technically innovative seating and tables. Dauphin’s ongoing collaboration with renowned designers like Martin Ballendat, Manfred Herrmann, and Joe Ricchio keeps the company’s output stylistically fresh, while Dauphin’s tradition of rigorous production standards and excellent quality control assures durability, longevity, and high performance.
