The pianomaker Pleyel and Peugeot Design Lab have developed a revolutionary piano. Although the piano pursues one of the classical codes of the world of pianos with its black lacquer finish, Peugeot Design Lab has totally reinterpreted the instrument by shaking up all the traditional volume, ergonomics and design codes. The greatest piece of groundbreaking ingenuity was to bring down the piano mechanism and align it perfectly with the pianist’s keyboard.
Peugeot Design Lab has invented a formal language that is unique in this sector and has created an experiential object. For the first time ever in piano history, the pianist can hear the sound of the instrument with incomparable precision. And, at the same time, the public can see the artiste playing from every conceivable angle. The pianist’s hands take centrestage.
Month after month the Pleyel and Peugeot Design Lab teams nurtured this extraordinary innovation which breaks new technical and visual ground in the history of pianos. Discover its soft, inherent silhouette, which looks like the aerodynamic hull of a boat. Ergonomically revolutionary, this baby grand piano also offers acoustics never heard before.
Focusing on Peugeot’s new identity and on Pleyel’s desire to establish itself in design and in the contemporary world, this piano harmoniously exemplifies the talents of both companies. By merging their DNA, the two brands have created a piano that is out of this world.
