SYRINX began when architect Hirotaka Satoh created a speaker for a space he had designed.
The speakers, with their soft, heavy leather body, were well received for their clear, drifting sound. In response, a patent was obtained and the SYRINX audio brand was born.
This is why the SYRINX domain is ".audio".

And to leather items
We searched for the best leather for the sound and came across vacchetta leather, which is tanned in the traditional Italian way. The color and luster of the leather is beautifully aged, and you can enjoy its leather-like qualities. However, the production of speakers produces a large amount of scrap wood.
We want to use up the life we have been given with care.
With this in mind, we began developing leather items that make use of the scraps. Since then, vachetta leather has become a representative leather of SYRINX products. The iconic business card case " Tsutsumu® " was born as SYRINX's first leather item.

Hitoe® is born.
After the launch of Tsutsumu®, under the theme of "light in body and mind," the company released a series of simple and portable iPhone cases, pen cases, document cases, and other products. Then, realizing that there was a need for a wallet that could be carried lightly, we began development of a wallet.
This is how the "Designer to Consumer" wallet , which specializes in thinness, was born. Hitoe® L-zipis born.
Hitoe® L-zip is a unique product development method. D2C stands for "Designer to Consumer," and the designer's ideals are directly communicated to the world through crowdfunding. The resulting highly acclaimed ideas are then evolved to reflect user feedback.

This year was a year of breakthroughs.
Speakers and leather items we have released so far win "IF Design Award" "IDEA" "A' Design Award" and other prominent national and international design awards. In crowdfunding, Hitoe ® L-zip often breaks domestic records.
It has been a year in which we have been convinced that many people can relate to the "lightness of body and mind" that SYRINX stands for.
