02/05/2018 - Colour your spaces! Colourful variety all along the line with “Dauphin Fiore”
The new “Dauphin Fiore” multi-purpose chair offers the perfect seating solution to suit any taste and almost any setting. Thanks to a large selection of frames, surfaces and colours, the all-round talent cuts a fine figure wherever it is used and its function and appearance makes it an attractive addition to any furnishing scenario.
Offenhausen, February 2018. Digitisation, the use of mobile devices and increasing flexibility are making work processes more and more complex. Modern-day working is no longer confined to a desk. Meetings, creative activities or e-mail correspondence for example can be held or performed anywhere in the office. In addition to the traditional meeting areas, nowadays breaktime areas, reception areas and training areas are also used as places for exchanging ideas and daily work. To ensure that employees feel at home here, and are motivated and productive, these “central areas” should also be designed to be integrated and functional and be fitted out with smart furniture.
Fiore – a chair for all eventualities!
As flexible and varied as these new working environments are, so is the “Fiore” product range from Dauphin. With “Dauphin Fiore” the Dauphin design team led by Jessica Engelhardt has developed a multi-purpose chair which, thanks to versatile features and a variety of possible uses, offers the right solution for any room situation.
The simple, elegant seat shell gives the chair a light visual touch and, depending on the material and colour, provides bold highlights or makes a fine statement. To cover the widest possible range of uses, the shell is optionally available in flexible plastic, as a slender moulded-wood shell and in various upholstered versions. Whether you opt for bright and colourful, a natural wood look or a classic black and white appearance, Fiore is always comfortable, functional and presents a clear design without being obtrusive.
A large selection of sub-frames – with or without armrests – and numerous options open up lots of other possible designs and applications. For example, the swivelling version with a four or five-star base can be used as a simple meeting chair in an executive office or conference area. With a 360°-swivelling writing tablet, the product range is perfect for use in seminar areas. The “Red Dot” jury was particularly impressed by the swivelling wooden model with a four-star base. In 2017, the intricate conference chair was presented with the “Red Dot Award: Product Design 2017”.
Full range of design freedom
In canteens and central areas, “Dauphin Fiore” demonstrates its versatility both as a cantilever chair, skid frame chair, four-legged chair or bar stool and provides welcome variety to the furnishings in modern office buildings. Thanks to the option to stack the chair, it can be stored away so as to save space. The linking option means that a skid frame model can quickly and easily be turned into a row solution. For waiting areas in the entrance to company premises and in waiting rooms in public buildings or doctors’ surgeries, the stable bench solution is ideally suited for use by two to five people. As a counter chair at (height-adjustable) standing tables, “Fiore” encourages users to switch between standing and sitting and brings greater movement to everyday work.
“Fiore” looks particularly elegant and cosy with a white plastic shell and elegant wooden legs – providing a homely touch in the office environment or simple elegance at home. The functional seating solutions are complemented by a universal table system with different table top formats. Whichever version is chosen, the result is always the same: “Dauphin Fiore” captivates with its functionality, comfort and casual look and satisfies almost any design wish.
