This carbon fiber hybrid piano has a built-in battery and looks wow

The Exxeo is a hybrid piano that carries an eloquent design that’s crafted out of a material more commonly used within the automotive industry… Carbon Fibre. This breath-taking musical instrument breaks away from the traditional form, with its organically shaped surfaces confidently dancing to create a sculpture-like form.

Effort hasn’t solely been invested into the piano’s aesthetics, but also its acoustic performance is superior to its conventional counterpart. Fast key repetition paired with an enhanced realism system enables the pianist to achieve the softest pianissimo to the boldest fortissimo. This leads to a theatrical experience that is filled with depth and emotion.

Whilst the use of carbon fibre allows for the fluid shape to be possible, it does also have practical benefits; due to its resistance to moisture, it makes Exxeo ideal for humid environments, such as mega-yachts and cruise ships!

The Exxeo Hybrid Piano is a winner of the A’ Design Award for the year 2019.

Designer: Iman Maghsoudi of EXXEO

“The project was born out of the frustration that static table-like form of traditional pianos, simply didn’t fit into contemporary living environments. We believed that the piano is an obvious part of modern living and should be designed to reflect that fact. Initial concepts developed based on the understanding that Everything in Existence is the result of a Frequency. Sound is the basis of Shape and Form. We were fascinated by harmonic fluence of the sound waves,” Maghsoudi explains to YD.

Exxeo captures the magnificent tone of flagship concert grand pianos. Award-winning soundboard speaker system; Harmonic Imaging™ XL technology, recreates the broad dynamic range of the original grand pianos through the use of a 200 Watts, 9 speaker sound system.

Exxeo is the only hybrid piano in the world equipped with a dedicated built-in battery. The high capacity power unit is mounted in the tail section. It enables the piano to perform up to 20 hours on a single charge.
