Vinyl revival: new turntable and box set by La Boite Concept
La Boite Concept’s turntable and cabinet respond to the vinyl revival
Fans of the vinyl revival, French audio company La Boite Concept has built an elegant modular cabinet to house your precious LPs, with room to give its new turntable a spin.
French audio company La Boite Concept manufactures all-in-one speakers and systems that keep a foothold in stylish furniture. The company was founded in 2008 by Timothée Cagniard, descendant of the pioneer brand of loudspeakers in France, Siare, originally created in the late 1930s. The new company is built around its own R&D laboratory, based in the Basque Country, with every component designed in-house, and materials such as wool and leather sourced from local companies wherever possible.
Elegant solutions for the vinyl renewal
The new ‘Lines’ cabinet system from La Boite Concept is available in several finishes and configurations
Two new products embody La Boite Concept’s approach. “Lines” is an elegant modular cabinet for your separate Hi-Fi system, designed by architecture and product designer Stephan Lanez.

Each wooden shelf is lined with felt made from French wool, allowing them to fit snugly into the tubular steel frame without transmitting any vibration through the structure. The cables are stored with leather ties that keep them perfectly aligned with the structure.
