Concert Grand Piano

Designed by Indonesian, built in Indonesia for the world.   Indonesian designer Raul Renanda, known for his architectural works and paintings, also an avid piano player, has one dream: to design and manufacture piano that embodies his design philosophy and create a full Indonesian-made grand piano.   His design brings a sense of movement and lightness, which came from a conceptual imagery of sailing ship that always appears in his design and artworks.   His idea was captured by Aksan Sjuman, an award winning musician who also develops beautiful handcrafted musical instruments under a well-known brand Sjuman Instruments.   Together they collaborate to create the SR 1928 - The Awakening, as the first uniquely designed grand piano.

1928 The Awakening

CONCERT GRAND ACOUSTIC PIANO

 

What is a piano made of? Wood, metals, and the heart of craftmanship. These are the main components that are already embedded into our lives.  

Nowadays, the technology revolution is fast replacing human beings, surpassing human’s skills even the best master craftsmen’s in the world.

We are relying too much on technology and having total dependence on machines to do things that we, as human, are not naturally developed to do with perfection. Yet, what truly important for our future generation is the heart and the soul.

The perfection in the imperfection of Indonesian culture really shows its true beauty. Because that’s how our heart and soul speaks.

The Heart
 
Designing this piano, Raul Renanda has been known for his sailing ship design philosophy that often appears in his major works, including the design concept for Teater Jakarta Taman Ismail Marzuki and Rolling Stone Café. This design influence also appears in his paintings and sculpture, and now, shown in the “SR 1928 Concert Grand Piano” design.
 
The movement flows from the pianist, wrapped within two ‘sails’ between piano keys to the edge of this piano like a sailing ship used to move the people into our archipelago, told in the history of Indonesia for our future generation.
 
Raul selected the finest wood and craft pattern based on many kinds of vernacular wood carving from Indonesian culture and other influences like India and China, which have shaped who we are today.
