Since founding in 1968, Dauphin has stood at the forefront of ergonomics, design, and aesthetics. Founder Friedrich-Wilhelm Dauphin has driven this story and now he looks back on a legacy certified in design gold, but one still growing.
In order to design into the future, first we must look back. In considering the state of workplace, learning and hospitality design, FRONT.design Ambassador, Simone Oliver of Architectus, outlines the defining influences of our time and design’s role within that.
The Project is that moment when you enter a showroom and find yourself overwhelmed with surprise, excitement, joy and the urge to Instagram – right away! This year, at Melbourne Indesign we saw exhibitors approach The Project from all angles – the common element among all being collaborative engagement.

A clever invention meant the breakthrough for Friedrich-Wilhelm Dauphin in the early 70s – he designed an office chair with the model number 1000 that was made almost entirely from conical, pluggable, easily shippable parts. To mark the company’s 50th anniversary, the successful model got a makeover and is re-launched in many variations as 1000 classic. A modern classic with esprit that is still relevant in the New Work era.
