Dauphin South Africa
Dauphin Office Seating was registered as a company in South Africa and began operating here in 1994. In 1997, we became a proud member of the Bidvest Group and today, Dauphin Office Seating South Africa is one of the most respected seating specialists in the country. Dauphin currently has showrooms in Dunkeld, Johannesburg and Black River Park, Cape Town.
Dauphin HumanDesign Group is one of South Africa’s leading office furniture businesses. As the largest office chair manufacturer in Europe, with licensees in 70 countries, our South African customer base includes blue chip clients such as Vodacom, Eskom, FNB, SAA and Sanlam to name a few.
Throughout the world, Dauphin’s name is synonymous with patented innovation and ergonomic seating. While our office chairs are designed internationally, they’re assembled and upholstered locally. This not only supports the local economy, but also offers clients the best of both worlds. On the one hand they know that our office seating products is of the highest international standard, and on the other they can have their office chairs tailor-made to suit their individual requirements.
Dauphin focuses on people. To be precise, people who sit. As seating specialists, our key focus is on ergonomic design and innovation. We were the first to create the ground-breaking Delta-Synchron Mechanism in office chairs which allows for a negative seat tilt and helps minimise strain on the spinal column. Our award winning innovation in the form of our dat-o chair features this mechanism and is the first chair in South Africa ever to be certified by the Ergonomics Society of South Africa (ESSA).
As well as being thought and design leaders in the office chair industry, Dauphin believes very much in personalised service. We place a great deal of emphasis on getting to understand our client’s individual needs and offer a unique ergonomic user education training programme to customers who purchase chairs from us.
Overall, we pride ourselves on producing environmentally conscious office chairs that are both cutting edge in design and sustainable in the long term. We believe that it is this - along with our reputation for exceptional service – that keeps our clients loyal to the Dauphin brand.
