"This sleek piano fits right in with the latest trends in interior design and is capable of attracting new customers. An inferior material (MDF), treated with polyester varnish, was replaced with solid three-layer wood, to achieve a more ecological design and improved sound quality, thereby enhancing the product’s image. This piano is available in 10 possible finish combinations. Outer case: Wenge-stained vertical-grain oak or natural vertical-grain oak with a light ceruse finish. Keyboard: white-linen, taupe-gray, bluish-gray, red or yellow-anise lacquer."

"From the 50 coats high gloss paint to the 5000 seat auditoriums they occupy, there’s nothing intimate or understated about a grand piano. A concerto on a keyboard or upright however will earn you little respect. At the recent Milan design week, designer Yves Plattard and Yamaha showcased a unique concept called “key between you” that aimed to create a more intimate environment for performances by bringing the musician and the audience together. (costers sold separately)."

Designer: Yves Plattard

"The design relives tradition, modernizing the classic piano. The instrument is inserted in a strip of wood and rests on a metal base, soundproofed thanks to sound deadening paint. The base is aligned with the barycentre of the instrument which houses the pedals. The red of the soundboard, the black of the cast iron frame and the transparency of the Plexiglas music stand assert the medley of classic and modern styles.

Just as consonance and dissonance are organized in music, M. Liminal’s shapes and colors are combined in asymmetric designs, simultaneously generating a composite and organic unit, as in nature. The M. Liminal design is dually inspired by music and the “sea”: the shape of the side evokes the profile of a wave while silver evokes the blinding mirror of the water illuminated by the sun. The red of the soundboard and black of the cast iron frame filter through the transparency of music stand, revealing additional beauty and strengthening the feel moment. M. Liminal: the music of shape and the design of sound."

Designer: Philippe Gendre

OK, I want this one:





"Ever find yourself writing out your grocery list for the week and thought, “gee, I bet this grocery list would make a really cool song..”? Well, it actually might be a better song than some of the total crap that is flying around the corporate owned FM airwaves. Yamaha, the makers of dirt bikes, boats and musical instruments, have decided that your sketch book could really use some ebony and ivory. In this case, its more like brushed metal and aluminum. Basically Yamaha incorporated their piano keyboard knowledge into this leather sketchpad and went “TADA, look how cool!” Though this is a lovely item to gawk at, it does remind me of those children’s books that have integrated keyboards for them to press along with their page turning."

Designer: Yamaha Studio [ Via: Dezain ]

Aw hell. The site I linked to with all of the awesome piano pictures on it must not allow hot linking for more than a day.

When I get some time I'll have to go back, download them and re-post.


[edit] OK - now they show up. Weird. Can you see them?
They're worth it - beautiful!

Strange. Maybe they're still in my cache, but I empty it nightly and I still see them. Probably their server was offline.
