‘The dream is to reunite two apparently antagonistic worlds — crafts and technology.’ This is the vision behind Mapu Speakers: a line of eco-friendly sound systems made using natural materials like clay, wood, cork and wool. By fusing cutting-edge electronics with ancestral crafts like pottery and wood-working, each Mapu speaker becomes a shining example of heritage-led innovation. The speakers are handmade by traditional craftspeople in Chile and Portugal, supporting the formation of a new generation of potters. Plus, they are 80% biodegradable — contributing less e-waste than their conventional counterparts and demonstrating how ancient knowledge and skills are essential tools for the construction of the future.
