Yamaha Design “Synapses” P-255
GOOD DESIGN AWARD
Contemporary portable digital piano for all musicians.
Defying categorization as a piano for home or for stage, yet maintaining the functionality and the values of a piano, I have designed the P-225 as an instrument for any occasion.
With the logo squarely facing the performer, and the keys reflecting in the black mirror surfaces of the cheek blocks and inner panel, I was able to achieve a performance space that seems as if it had been cut from an acoustic piano. The music rack has been widened as much possible to easily deal with various situations.
Mindful to create an environment in which the player can concentrate on performance, the speaker grill on the top surface is enclosed in a groove and arranged in a straight line with the buttons. The curved top surface and sides—which have a sensual attractiveness like that of a grand or electric piano—have been molded to take into consideration the line of sight of the performer, and also that of the audience.
As if you could take your beloved and familiar home piano with you—I have created a portable authentic piano with compact size, durability, and lightweight design. It is a piano you can refer to as your partner that you can take anywhere.
