Roland Facet Grand Piano
Of all the things we could have shown you from CES 2020 in Las Vegas (Consumer Electronics Show) driverless cars, rotating TV’s, smart bins, headless robot cats (that’s right) this is probably the standout (well for style anyway) the Roland Facet Grand Piano. The concept was conceived for the 2015 at the Roland’s Digital Piano Design Awards by the winner Korean industrial designer Jong Chan. His design was inspired by polyhedrons and named ‘Facet’ from crystalline structures. The angular build gives an amazing experience sound for both player and audience. Flat-panel speakers are in the base that which flow through the outer frame.
At this stage Roland has said it’s not going to be a product and has no plan for production which would probably devastate the Piano Man himself Billy Joel.
