A manufacturer focused on people

The Dauphin Group is today one of Europe's leading manufacturers in terms of office seating.

Dauphin 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.


The Dauphin HumanDesign® Group combines its economic success with a business policy which is deliberately oriented towards sustainability and environmental protection. The company actively cares for the environment and is committed to interacting with nature in a responsible manner - in harmony with environment-related laws and standards.

In 2010,Dauphin was given so-called EMAS certification. EMAS is the acronym for the Eco Management and Audit Scheme (also known as the EU Eco Audit or simply Eco Audit).

EMAS was developed by the European Union. It is a community system comprising environmental management and environmental auditing for organisations looking to improve their environmental performance.

Industrial companies, service providers, administrative bodies etc. as well as other types of organisation including supranational organisations can be certified.

By joining the Umweltpakt Bayern (Bavarian Environmental Pact) in 2007, Dauphin is looking to set an example by working together with other companies in Bavaria and going above and beyond the legal requirements in order to avoid damaging the environment in the future.
