Marie Cagniard faisant visiter lusine SIARE au president Valerie-Giscard dEstaing en 1978

Marie Cagniard giving Président Valéry Giscard d’Estaing a tour of her factory in 1978.

In 1938, the visionary Marie Cagniard Yeramian created a brand of speakers named Siare, which later became the reference in the Hi-Fi industry. At a time when business was mostly closed to women and acoustic equipment had not yet developed Hi-Fi, Marie Cagniard was bold enough to put innovation at the heart of her company.

70 YEARS OF ACOUSTIC KNOWLEDGE AND INNOVATION

In 1970, her son Thierry joined Siare. He was responsible for the creation of speakers whose modernity and qualities left a mark at the time and were a great success for this leading brand.

Guillaume Cagniard, and « La Premiere » in 2008

In 2010, 70 years after the beginning, Marie and Thierry joined with Thierry’s sons, Guillaume and Timothée for creating La Boite concept, gathering three generations around the same passion.

In 2008, 70 years after the beginning, Marie and Thierry joined with Thierry’s sons, Guillaume and Timothée for creating La Boite concept, gathering three generations around the same passion. «La Première», a model designed by Guillaume, is an all- in-one loudspeaker styled like an arcade game which is the incarnation of La Boite concept’s vision: top of the range, made to measure loudspeakers, all-in-one and tailored for contemporary uses.

In 2013, La Boite concept’s first collaboration with a designer was revealed. Together with Samuel Accoceberry, their technical team developed the Cube series, whose compact size and appearance of a small piece of furniture is allied with optimal ease of use for wireless devices.

KNOW

HOW

La Boite concept combines its knowledge of traditional Hi-fi with ergonomically designed all-in-one products that are tailored to the new sound technologies (wireless systems, smartphones, tablets, computers). Those extremely high qualities, innovative and technologically advanced products are nonetheless simple and easy to use, but also designed for contemporary environments and ways of living.

La Boite concept’s loudspeakers are also functional: multimedia desk or coffee table… they meet the requirements of connoisseurs but are still truly easy to use.

It is thus that the family knowledge ; embodied in Marie and Thierry, is being developed today by Timothée whose management of the company reflects the attention to details established by its family.

The brand’s products are not just high performance and innovative products developed by their own R&D laboratory, but also beautifully designed lifestyle objects, made to form part of their environment.
 La Boite concept develops audio systems internally, but for some of their products they also call on the aid of well-known designers: Samuel Accoceberry, Olivier Dollé, Vincent Tordjman… it makes them true pieces of furniture and give them something unique.

la Boite concept makes their products in Europe so they can have total control over the quality of each component that makes up the finished object.

Their headquarters and their Research and Development laboratory are in Ustaritz, in the Basque country (France). La Boite concept likes to make the most of the resources including wood working skills and local artisans and industries of the French and Spanish Basque country.
