Nature, the essence of our Earth, has inspired design since the beginning of time. History points to the Ancient Egyptians or Neoclassical Romans setting the standard for creative design that pulls humanity into unity with nature.
Now, Kim Hyunsoec of hs2 studio has joined the ranks with artistic geniuses of old with his gorgeous Oyster Grand Piano design.
The Oyster Grand combines the sounds of music with the visual appeal of an organic oyster, radiating modern ingenuity and artistic representation, redefining the standard of beauty. Blending the traditional sleek black with a reimagined silhouette, the Oyster Grand Piano’s rounded edges and clamshell opening compliment any room.
There is no sacrifice of melodic perfection at the expense of beauty with the Oyster Grand. It’s finely tuned keys, hammers, and strings resonate the sweetest sounds, producing harmonies and melodies even the most casual listeners will hear the distinctive quality of music emitted from this instrument.
Irish poet, John O’ Donohue says it best:
“The human soul is hungry for beauty; we seek it everywhere — in landscape, music, art, clothes, furniture, gardening, companionship, love, religion, and in ourselves. No one would desire not to be beautiful. When we experience the beautiful, there is a sense of homecoming.”
Hyunsoec answered the call of the human souls by blending two such mediums into a piece of exquisite design. The oyster inspired piano design not only allows people to audibly experience the essence of emotion, but it allows people to see this essence of grandeur concurrently.
Hyunsoec redefined the majesty of the grand piano. Man and nature come together in perfect harmony, each complimenting the other producing more than a beautiful instrument, creating a symbiosis visual and audible beauty unmatched by any other work of art.
