this limited edition hybrid sculpture is designed to accommodate a full 88 key digital piano of desired type (kawai, yamaha, roland), as well as provide shelving for various music texts and items.

evoking the graceful beauty of a shell over a nautilus, this collector’s piece is a fully functional digital musical instrument. the smoothly hand-sanded finish aluminum body (pictured here) can be offset by a veneer exterior to add a contrast visually and in tactility (available in variety of wood and finishes).

an exquisitely conceived hybrid of modernist functionalism and linearism, negative space, and a baroque dynamism come together to culminate in an impressive gravity defying centrifugal force.

in addition, it is tribute to the composer fryderyk chopin, inspired by wacław szymanowski’s heraldic 1906 sculpture of chopin (warsaw). which is similarly characterized by a monumental and centrifugal force of movement through heavy materials and negative space.
