Roland Kiyola Piano

Roland, renown manufacturer of electronic musical instruments, have reinvented the piano as a beautiful piece of modern furniture. The Roland Kiyola Piano has a design inspired by Scandinavian furniture, and is handcrafted in Japan from all-natural oak wood. Unlike most digital pianos and keyboards, the instrument is slim and elegant, ideal for small city apartments. With hi-tech features including a keyboard with sensing technology, which provides incredibly accurate detection of where your fingers are hitting the keys, wireless Bluetooth connectivity to your favourite music-making apps, and a dynamic array of speakers that fill the room with sound, the Kiyola is a powerful instrument that makes a sophisticated statement in your home.

The Kiyola Piano is now available for the first time in the US at the MoMA Design Store
