The Crystal Edition’s overwhelming first impression is of the usually hidden parts of the piano being brought to the fore and made visible. While the lines of the traditional grand piano are evident, drawing on the Modern Movement and reminiscent of Piano and Rogers’ acclaimed Pompidou Centre, there is a radical exposure of the internal workings of this radical grand piano.
Playing, watching and listening present a new experience; we can focus on the mechanisms behind the music and be mesmerised by the hammer-action and strings.
CREATIVITY AND CUSTOMISATION
The Crystal Edition’s transparent case affords the opportunity to personalise your grand piano in many different ways.
Blocks of colour, imagery and led lights can all be incorporated into the design to create an entirely unique instrument. We can work with you to see your creativity through to fruition with the custom manufacture of a bold and striking grand piano
