manufacturer » Atacama
The early products had moderate success, but in 1987 the company began to develop an innovative design of Hi-Fi speaker stand. The initial reaction to the design from local specialist retailers was very encouraging, and manufacturing began that year on a very small scale as part of a pilot marketing campaign.
From these early days the company grew from strength to strength and in 2001 Atacama launched the Equinox Series of equipment support to compliment our award winning speaker stands. Within a few years Equinox became the equipment support of choice, winning PRODUCT OF THE YEAR in What HiFi S & V for 5 consecutive years, 2004 until 2008.
Atacama had always been a manufacturer of metal and glass products, but in 2011 the next major development happened when Atacama invested in a new plant to process wood and in particular Bamboo composite. With this new material it created even greater design opportunities whilst offering our customers an ecological alternative to traditional hardwoods. In 2012 & 2013 the Eris Eco 5 won Equipment Support of the year, followed by the Evoque Eco 60-40 and Moseco Speaker Stand in 2014.
