Our Story

Dolfi is a German brand with an international attitude. We create elegant, high-tech products with ultrasonic technology at their core, making the lives of many different people around the globe easier and more fun. Our name is a tribute to dolphins who are the most advanced users of ultrasound.

We began our journey in 2014 when the very first prototypes of the portable ultrasonic washing device were developed in cooperation with Swiss engineering lab, MPI Ultrasonics.

The crowdfunding campaign launched for the Dolfi device in 2015 made a lot of headlines around the world. The project successfully raised over $1m (USD) from around 8k supporters in over 90 countries which helped turn our prototype into a real manufactured product.

In that same year, we began strategic cooperation with the Centre for Ultrasonic Engineering (CUE) at Strathclyde University in Glasgow, UK. CUE is one of the world’s biggest hubs for ultrasonic engineering with amazing state of the art laboratories and over 50 academic researchers and scientists specializing in ultrasonic tech. This access to highly skilled and experienced ultrasonic technology engineering resources is the base and driving force for innovative solutions implemented in Dolfi products.

The leap from crowdfunding to mass production has not been easy or smooth. It took almost three years of hard work with many setbacks to set up and scale the manufacturing for Dolfi devices. Despite all the hurdles and obstacles, we did it, and it’s all thanks to the hard work of our team and strong support of our partners.

That hard work did not go unrecognized. Each year, the world’s oldest independent design organization, iF International Forum Design GmbH, organizes the iF DESIGN AWARD - the most prestigious world-renowned design prize. In 2019, we won over the 67-member jury made up of independent experts from around the world to claim the 2019 iF DESIGN AWARD in the Product category for the outstanding design of our innovative ultrasonic washing device. The competition was intense with over 6,400 entries from 50 countries, but it was Dolfi who received the highest seal of quality.
