Designed by eccentric German designer and aerodynamics expert, Professor Luigi Colani, the K 208 Pegasus manages to “free the grand piano of its traditional form” and still produce superior quality sound when played. Professor Colani, who commutes between Tokyo, Los Angeles, Berlin and Paris, is at war with all corners and edges. So he paired up with renowned German piano maker, Schimmel Pianos, to create the futuristic K 208 Pegasus in his favorite shape, the oval.
On the piano well-thought-out details maximize comfort, like an extendable, integrated piano stool and an electrically-driven lift mechanism that silently raises or lowers the top.
So how much does the Schimmel K 208 Pegasus cost? While we were unable to obtain exact pricing, we do know that Miami’s Delano Hotel recently dropped $200k on a Lucite piano from the same Schimmel Art Collection for its Lenny Kravitz-designed lounge, the Florida Room. The Florida Room’s Schimmel is a replica of the piano Kravitz keeps in his own house.
