The Pianodrome artists and builders have been busy refining the design and selecting the best piano parts for the construction of our first seating wedge. Below, you can see the placement of the first harp against the side of our playable upright. The harp lends its weight to the structure, balancing the base with the higher tier which you'll see in a moment. Every part of the Pianodrome aims to be beautiful as well as functional, so consideration is given to the flow of lines and overall aesthetic appeal of each chosen piece.
The upper tier was lifted onto two brackets which had been carefully mortise and tenoned and bolted to the back of the playable upright – using wood reclaimed from another piano, of course! This top tier will consist of pianos that have been stripped of strings, keys and harps, and turned upside-down to reveal the underside of the keyboard. This makes a more balanced and striking seat – what do you think of the wheels?
