Mapuguaquen Speakers Are Made of Clay


Mapaguaquen translates as “sound of the earth” and the names suits these speakers perfectly, considering they are nothing more than clay pots.

These original clay speakers are the work of Chilean designer Pablo Ocqueteau, who devised them as a way of showing that centuries old traditions can fulfill the needs of modern society. You’re probably wondering if clay pots could produce powerful sounds without cracking and braking into pieces, but it seems possible if they are stoneware.

Mapuguaquen speakers are just a far-fetched concept and they are likely to remain just that,but it’s nice to see innovation doesn’t have to be only about new technology.
