What we stand for

We stand for a future of artistic musicians. We believe in aesthetics and science as well as in meaningful communication. We want to take a relevant position in the upcoming transformation of the music scene, consolidating on understanding, joy, health, cooperation, and musical expression.

A sculpture in time - In dialogue with your audience We believe that music is a sculpture in time in which the musician removes all fragments that do not fit into the expression of his meaning - as a sculptor does in stone. Yet, haven't we all experienced music as the most direct form of art? Penetrating directly to the soul it doesn't need words as symbols. Ideally, live music is a dialogue between artist and audience, as well as between the conscious and the unconscious. In its optimal form this dialogue assists its participants to discover what is relevant in life.

The perfect instrument, the perfect match - In dialogue with your instrument Each of our instruments is rich of character, yet transparent in contact and approach, offering a wide array of nuances to play with. This balance of character and transparency causes our instruments to be easy to move, but hard to master, which makes it joyfully interesting to play. In dialogue with the instrument, a broad range of possibilities opens up, and together you create music out of sound.

Play, and we will listen - In dialogue with the maker From concept to production we connect different fields of the sciences and the humanities. With access to modern and diverse professional production facilities we make choices solely based on knowledge and understanding, not shying away from advanced fighter jet technology. Implementing the most advanced research and production technologies to date is exactly what the great piano builders from the 1880's till the 1920's did. We believe in their approach and follow the tradition they set.

Timeline of Innovation

Monocoque Key Construction

The perfect key that gives unparalleled direct response

No matter the angle, no matter the conditions, our monocoque keys play always faster and more direct than wood could do.. Even if we use keys in very extreme angles. 

2013

Hybrid Ergonomic Keyboard

A smaller keyboard in a grand piano with a silent system

The first ergonomic keyboard ever delivered on the market that is intended for an acoustic instrument, but that has a digital silent function. 

2023

Automatic Custom Keyboard Creation

Any keyboard directly

Our advanced software package "keydesign" is the ultimate tool for designing piano keybaords of any sort in any build. It automatically designs and analizes constructions and simulates its real world behavior with exceptional presicion. The whole process of creating a perfect keyboard with predictable outcome within seconds instead of years. 

2023

Active Soundboard Technology

Actively and precisely controlled waves of vibration in our ultra thin soundboard

In every soundboard rich moving waves occur. The way they move is essential for the quality of the tone. Normally those waves are induced from an oscilator (the strings) and they develop in the board. In our system we directly control them in the board, giving us possibilities that mechanically are simply impossible. Also, contributing to our dedication to portability, the soundboard of our 4 meters long concert grand does not weigh thousands of kilos like one would expect, but 4 kilograms. 

2024

Our journey has been marked by a series of pioneering advancements in piano technology. We've consistently led the way, delivering remarkable new innovations to our clients. Explore the milestones that define our commitment to pushing the boundaries of what's possible in the world of piano craftsmanship.
