Roland Kiyola KF-10 digital piano

June 24th, 2016 by retail design blog

Designed in-house at Karimoku and handcrafted in Japan, the ‘Kiyola KF-10′ is intended as both a high-end musical instrument plus an item of furniture. The cabinet is built from natural timber, enabling a contoured profile and a slim, stable stand that would be impossible to create with the processed wood typically used in piano construction. With its model name translating from Japanese as ‘Elegance and Beauty’, the ‘KF-10’s’ cabinet offers the organic look and feel exclusive to genuine wood, with individual grain patterns unique to each instrument.

This refined digital piano achieves its form and function in harmony: a powerful instrument that makes a sophisticated statement in the home. The presence of Roland’s digital piano technology delivers the performance a player demands, with features including ‘superNATURAL piano’ sound modelling, dynamic sensing technology via the new ‘PHA-50′ keyboard, wireless connectivity to your music-making apps and a dynamic array of speakers to fill the home with sound. Additionally, both a foot pedal and ergonomically designed piano bench feature as part of the ‘Kiyola’.
