The Peugeot Design Lab was created to explore innovation in non-automotive products and one of their first releases is this sleek piano for French manufacturer Pleyel.
“The lowering of the mechanics allows the aligning of the pianos cover and keyboard. For the first time in the history of the piano, the audience can see the artist play from any viewing angle. This shows off the pianist’s hands and creates a higher level of interaction with the audience. Moreover, the pianist hears the sound of their instrument with a level of quality never previously attained. The lowered action no longer inhibits the sound projection, which consequently becomes immediate.”
