Ella Henderson, said; “It’s been a real privilege to be one of the first performers to play on the Peugeot Design Lab Pleyel piano. The design of it is so different to anything I’ve played on before and while it comes from a company more recognised for their stylish cars, it looks so futuristic and sounds incredible. It definitely added something to my performance today.  My emotions today were a mixture of excitement and nervous energy, but I was worried people might be paying more attention to the piano than me!”

In June 2012, Peugeot launched the ‘Peugeot Design Lab’ in Paris. It marks the first design created by an expert team of designers, engineers and technicians. Its development required many months of research, study and tests to ensure the piano retained Pleyel’s high sound quality, while delivering a unique playing experience and innovative exterior.

The end result features a number of unique innovations now patented; for the first time in the history of the piano the audience can see the artist play from all frontal views, showing off the pianist’s hands and creating a higher level of sound response and interaction between them and the audience.
