The founders of Relaxound

Having an idea is one thing, making it big is another. What started in a small apartment in Hamburg in 2013 has developed into a successful company that is constantly growing. Philipp and Dennis, the two founders of Relaxound, work with their team on new ideas. The aim is to combine good sound and good design: in creative products that make these two worlds tangible.

PHILIPP STÖRRING, AUDIO EXPERT

Philipp appreciates sounds in all their facets. As a music lover, he deals intensively with the positive effects of sounds. He recognizes early on that they are able to sustainably enrich our lives. Philipp also benefits from his many years of experience in meditation, medical hypnosis and tai chi in his work. In addition to the fascinating world of sounds, Philipp is fascinated by art and design. That is why he was looking for an innovative project that combined the two topics for a long time. Something that became a reality with Relaxound. Philipp studied literature and sinology in Germany and China, completed an apprenticeship as a media designer with a focus on audio, and started the Relax and success story with Dennis Clasen in 2013, which continues to this day.

HOW IT ALL BEGAN

In 2013, Philipp and Dennis started Relaxound GmbH in Hamburg. Their idea: to develop premium audio concepts for everyday medical use. The two are convinced that the targeted use of sounds helps patients to complete medical treatments in a more relaxed manner. With their creations, they want to harness the intuitive effects of audio. More ideas quickly come up and so the two invent a little box that chirps when you walk past it. What was initially intended exclusively for medical practices as a creative audio relaxation tool quickly becomes a public favorite: In addition to orders from the medical sector, there are more and more private orders. The chic little Twitter box takes people’s hearts by storm! It satisfies the growing need for relaxation in everyday life.
