The sculpturally inspired half a million dollar piano by Goldfinch
Melding music and art
Shortly after shipping a highly customised bedazzled grand piano to a Qatari Sheikh, which was adorned with no less than half a million Swarovski crystals, comes the newest creation from the renowned British piano company – Goldfinch.
Inspired by a gold metal sculpture from art studio, Based Upton, comes 'The Baby,' a truly unique baby grand piano that follows the futuristic curvature of its sculptural inspiration. The original sculpture, 'The Twist,' took almost nine years to make and was created entirely by hand.
Finished in a dusty muted gold metal, the unusual instrument presents with a flat oval top, which opens up to reveal the precision musical engineering within and of course the black and white keys. Costing almost half a million pounds sterling, it is not yet known who owner of this beautiful sculptural instrument is or will be, but with Goldfinch's reputation, we expect it sounds every bit as harmonious as it looks.
