Crystal Grand Piano
Pianos are usually made from processed wood, but did you know that there are also transparent pianos? Kawai Musical Instrument Manufacturer Co. Ltd, based in Hamamatsu, produces a transparent grand piano called the “Crystal Grand Piano.” Its exterior is made almost entirely from a transparent acrylic resin. Being excellently tuned and surprisingly eye-catching, the piano is a work of art that expands the ways you enjoy piano. They have been played on stage by famous Japanese artists too.
A crystal grand piano was displayed at the Sound Design Festival in Hamamatsu 2021 as a public use piano, where many visitors tried it out. Its graceful appearance no doubt stimulated their desire to play. The piano is not only an instrument, but it is also a work of art that stirs the creativity of the performer. It also functions as an interior design piece that brilliantly decorates a space.
A mini crystal grand piano was also displayed at the venue. The exhibition conveyed the craftsman’s passion for piano making.
