About

Exquisite design. Exceptional acoustic engineering. A work of art  

Symphonica brings beauty, grace and warmth back to a world dominated by flat and unfeeling plastic iPhone accessories. Its inspired, passionate design reminds that form can be just as valuable as function, capturing the attention and drawing the eye to the flowing, organic patterns expressed in the natural wood grain.

Designed by a veteran audio engineer and constructed from environmentally friendly woods, Symphonica needs no electricity yet boosts the sound from your iPhone speaker by up to 6db, filling the room  by acoustically amplifying its sound.

 Its elegant appearance and graceful flowing lines make it a welcome addition to any home or office, and a conversation starter the second your visitors lay their eyes on it.

Meet the Symphonica Team
Here's a bit of information about the small team that is working to make Symphonica a reality.

Freddie Kwoh - Design, Engineering & Production
Freddie Kwoh - Design, Engineering & Production

Symphonica was designed by Frederick ("Freddie") Kwoh, a seasoned audio engineer and product designer who holds multiple patents in the field. Drawing from his decades of experience he has created an innovative and beautiful product which not only serves a useful purpose, but pleases the eye as well.

No matter how great the product, you still need to let people know about it and get it out to them. Marc is in charge of spreading the word, as well as managing all the behind the scenes processes involved in getting your Symphonica to your front door.

Risks and challenges

Getting a product like this from the mind of the designer into the hands of backers involves a great deal of hard work, planning. and coordination between designer, manufacturer and logistics in order to deliver on schedule.

In recognition of this we have been working closely with the production personnel for over a year, refining the specifications and ironing out the technical challenges and complexities involved in transitioning from prototypes and samples to full scale production.

We also have a team member with significant professional experience in handling freight and logistics on a daily basis, and so we are well prepared to deal with the complications that can arise in moving products between the factory, warehouse, and the end user.

As a result of this we are confident that once our goal is met we will be able to deliver on schedule to all our backers.
