Designer Alexander Petunin dreamed up a scenario in which he was introduced to this idiosyncratic Alien Piano. While on an intergalactic trip to visit friends on another planet, Alex was introduced to this rather unusual musical instrument that actually bears noticeable similarities to the Earthly grand piano.
This wacky imaginary object features a full keyboard with the conventional arrangement of black and white keys. This is set into a large curved case that extrudes backwards in a way that is also familiar. Where the Alien Piano differs from the modern human model is in the increased fluidity of its contours. The flat surfaces have too been sculpted to take subtle curvatures, and the apparent solidity is softened because of this. The piano stool is even connected continuously with the abstract soundboard's organic case.
