MAPU 2.1  Active 3” and 5¼” speaker system




The Mapu 2.1 speaker system brings truly outstanding hi-fi sound to your home. It is perfect for every mood and living situation, offering you a high quality, enveloping and powerful acoustic experience. 
Two 3” tweeter envelope you with crystal clear highs while a 5 1/4‘’ woofer delivers powerful bass frequencies.


MAPUGUAQUÉN (meaning “the sound of the earth” in the language of the South American Mapuche people) is the world’s first active sound system made of clay. They fuse the state-of-the-art in electronics and amplification with ancestral craft techniques. Their acoustics were developed by renowned engineers from Germany and Denmark, while their housings are produced in limited, numbered series, using traditional craft techniques, natural materials and regional aesthetics from the South of Chile. 

Mapuguaquén reconcile in a sustainable way two methods of production that since the industrial revolution have been moving apart – crafts and technology.

DOCUMENTARY DESIGN is a Concept Studio founded by Pablo Ocqueteau & Philine von Düszeln to create interdisciplinary design and cultural projects related to image, identity and materiality.  Our vision goes far beyond making speakers. We dream of a Crafts Re-evolution to give back protagonism to traditional hand-crafts in our industrialized world, creating unique, innovative products that are deeply related to the particular materials and visual cultures of the places they come from, and thus stand for identity and history.

With Mapuguaquén we want to reconcile in a sustainable way two production methods that since the industrial revolution have been moving apart - crafts and technology.
