The Zaphir Chime Company began as Shanti Design. The creators of the chimes, S. Maeijer and J. Kolkmeijer, started working on chimes in 1992 and continue to have a strong focus on developing new sustainable materials and different tunings so as to create fresh sounding chimes. The craftspeople of these chimes play an integral role in their creation as each chime is tuned by hand, to ensure they all have a rich, melodious and circular flow.
The dimensions and tuning of Zaphir Chimes coincide with the natural principles related to the Golden Ratio. Zaphir Chimes are used for relaxation, in perinatal care, in sound-therapy-massage, meditation, Feng Shui and in educational work.
