From Germany’s Dauphin comes Fiore – a range of chairs inspired by the smooth contours of a flower petal.
May 8th, 2018
Manufactured by Dauphin in Germany, the Fiore range offers the flexibility to utilise a single chair design through the many requirements of the modern office. A true all-rounder for contemporary workspaces, the collection is equally at home in collaborative zones, conferences, seminar facilities, cafeterias or visitor seating.
The Dauphin design team, led by Jessica Engelhardt, has delivered beautifully on the need for flexible office furniture with the Fiore. Inspired by the smooth contour of a petal, the chair – the name of which is Italian for flower – provides comfort through a high-quality, polypropylene seating shell. Cleverly designed in an abundance of vibrant colours as well as wood veneers to instil a touch of the outdoors, Fiore’s base options include a 4-post side chair and bar stool, which stack eight high on the floor; or three high for stools. All these features work in concert, allowing Fiore to rapidly change a space to meet the demands of today’s corporate and institutional markets.
At the centre of Fiore’s design is a simple, ergonomic seat shell produced in bright poly or a choice of natural oak or walnut veneer. Available un-upholstered, with an upholstered seat pad or fully upholstered, the Fiore chair enhances any environment while providing a graceful solution for flexible spaces.
