K 125 Tradition / Upright piano

K 125 Tradition

Discipline: Product

Traditional and classical elements with a contemporary slant create a beautiful illustration of the essentials. The joints are clearly structured in vertical and horizontal lines. The construction of the piano leg, which runs almost down to floor non-interrupted, offers a completely novel interpretation of the otherwise frequently bulky toe block area of the piano. In this upright the footprint is almost non-existent due to the emphasis of the vertical line. Instead of having wheels, the elegant piano has a harmonious transition to a glider. This sturdiness, that requires high-performance craftsmanship, seems light and natural at the same time.
