With Vivace Sauter gives the world a new, post-modernist grand piano that embodies the simplicity and functionality of the genius-bar age. The steel legs are now adjoined with the panel up front that houses the pedal lyra while all we see is air, punctuated by the metal rods that administer pedal functions. Much like the open-heart mechanism of the most coveted luxury watches this modern piano revels in exposure of it’s core functions.
The traditional curves give way to truncated verticalities of the side keyboard panels lending the entire piano’s body a singular, enclosed appearance.
The combination of the industrial steel and warmth of the matte wood veneer create a contemporary ensemble perfectly suited for an ultra modern interior design where hi-tech functionality meet natural elements in a pure and elemental harmony.
The stainless-steel squares are imbedded in the wood outlining the familiar curvature of the piano shape while the lid nests inside of the piano’s body. This small revision of the traditional lip overlap lends this Sauter piano its clean simplicity of form.
