Grand Piano from Audi Design - the Future of Classic Design

Jul 12, 2009

This exceptional piano was constructed by Audi Design Studio. The popular piano maker Bosendorfer from Austria, currently wholly owned subsidiary of Yamaha, was the one to work with the car-maker on the musical instrument.

Probably one of the most striking features of the piano design is the lid that extends without any break down to the instrument's base. If you look Audi Design Wing from above you can see the lid "sunk" into the main case. In addition, if you look from side you can see the curve of the tremble side uninterrupted by a joint line.

Another feature of the design is the look of the keyboard, which has no wings at the ends and the cast frame is colored in grey unlike the common pianos that have it colored in bronze.

Designer Philip Schlesinger, who put into practice the project at the Concept Design Studio in Munich described the piano by saying: "Generous surface areas ensure formal clarity; there are no decorative applications, the edges and lines are sharply drawn, the joints logically positioned. All these are important aspects of the Audi design."

On July 16 Audi will mark its 100 years of activity, presenting the piano at the Audi Forum Ingolstadt. If you're a true fan of Audi and music then you'll consider buying the instrument for 100,000 euros, which is about $ 139,867.
