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.
Dennis loves good design with strong ideas. In his work as a designer, he develops projects for furniture, lighting and product design. His work is not just about styling. For him, the starting point is always a conceptual added value. Something that can be positively experienced in everyday life and that inspires people. Just like Philipp, Dennis has a great passion for music and sounds. With Relaxound, Dennis and Philipp have fulfilled a dream: Here they combine the two worlds “design” and “sound” and develop products that can be sensually experienced. Dennis designed his own lamps as a schoolboy and later studied design at the Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design in London, in 2005 he established his design studio /// able in Hamburg and founded Relaxound with Philipp Störring in 2013.
It’s May 2015: The renowned MoMa Museum in New York orders 800 Twitter boxes. An accolade for Relaxound and a new chapter in an incredible success story. The Zwitscherbox has made a triumphant advance around the world, is present in 25 countries and at home in 1,350 shops around the world. Every day she conjures a relaxed smile on millions of faces. International design shops such as the Van Gogh Museum Saint-Remy, MoMa Museum San Francisco, Bauhaus Museum Weimar and Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein carry the Relaxound Twitter box. Likewise, the exclusive specialist retailers: from Manufactum, Dussmann, Abt to NOX deco and Loft Tokyo.
Exclusive design editions have been expanding our portfolio since 2019. Our first cooperation with the design studio REMEMBER® is a promising start that establishes a new tradition. Together with our loyal fans, we are looking forward to the many exciting designs that will follow in the future. But that’s not all: With new, innovative products from Relaxound we bring even more relaxation into everyday life. Be it with our compact Birdybox, new sound creations such as the Lakesidebox and new Relaxound boxes, which are currently being fine-tuned in our audio studio.
With this in mind: it remains relaxing!
