MoMA Exclusive: Technology meets artisan craftsmanship with this oak-wood piano from Japan. A collaboration between Roland and Japanese furniture company Karimoku, this innovative piano boasts such features as a keyboard with sensing technology, which provides incredibly accurate detection of where your fingers are hitting the keys. This allows you to control volume and length of notes.
Whereas most digital pianos use sampling (pre-recorded sound from other pianos), the Roland Kiyola employs piano modeling, so you’ll experience the same response and touch as an acoustic piano. The piano’s dynamic array of four built-in speakers fills your home with sound.
The look of the Roland Kiyola Piano was inspired by Scandinavian furniture and midcentury modern designs. In contrast to other digital pianos that have a boxy silhouette and a bulky base, the Kiyola has edges that are rounded and graceful, and the legs are slender. Unlike other digital pianos, the Kiyola’s keys have the feel of real ivory. Foot pedal and piano bench included. Some assembly required.
- Handcrafted in Japan from all-natural oak wood. Individual grain patterns are unique to each piano, as is the beautiful natural aging of the wood.
