Transformer Grand Piano

The intention was to create a new, futuristic, up to date piano for to the traditional viennese piano manufacturer Boesendorfer. We took the “transformers” as an inspiration. Those action toys can transform from cars or planes into robots and were very popular in the 80’s and are currently celebrating their comeback. The “Bösendorfer Transformer Grand Piano” has two kinds of appearance: Grand Piano and Cupboard. The corpus can be brought in an upright position where it not only takes less space when not used as a piano but in its state of furniture you can also store books, dishes, etc. in it.
