The ‘Harrods Piano’, designed and built by Fulbourn-based Edelweiss Pianos, is the first collaboration of its kind with luxury department store Harrods. Edelweiss Pianos has had an in-store Knightsbridge display on the third floor of the London flagship branch for over four years.

Tomas Norman, managing director at Edelweiss, said: “When Harrods interior design team asked Edelweiss to be part of the stunning new interior, we could not wait to take up the challenge and get designing.

“What better location to place a UK, handmade, self-play piano, than a quintessential British tearoom?”

Edelweiss has a track record of pushing the boundaries of piano design with the likes of The Solis and the Silex, which defy ergonomics with their shape and form.

The piano itself is a take on the well-known Sygnet, an exclusive piano shape from Edelweiss and the worlds smallest baby grand. The twin leg design is a mix of classic and contemporary with a liquid metal bronze finish and brass hardware. Accompanied by a unique semi-circular shape stool. The overall design is completed with the distinguished ‘H’ logo.
