Akin to those experiments with updide-down spectacles that make the (sadly not so popular) headlines now and then.
The Baby by Based Upon, priced at £475,000, is a collaboration between Goldfinch Pianos and Based Upon - a London-based artist studio, renowned for its innovative contemporary British art.
The pianos form is based on the repeating spiral patterns omnipresent throughout our universe. From star-studded galaxies to the florets in a sunflower, the fluid curves of the Baby Piano depict these mysterious patterns - so prevalent in nature.
It's called the Twist - a unique Based Upon sculpture - and the result of nine years of design evolution. To date the Twist has appeared as a handful of luxury, limited edition tables and consoles and is now reimagined as an astonishing piano.
The tri-oval top elevates, appearing to twist away from its base, to reveal a baby grand piano. Exclusive hand-finished metals and seductively tactile resins reflect the artist’s studies of the earth’s surface—and scenes taken from outer space.
Only the finest solid spruce, from the Valle de Fiemme in the north Italian Alps, is good enough for Goldfinch master craftsmen. Using treasured, time-honoured techniques, this incredible wood is precisely engineered to create the tonal heart of every Goldfinch piano.
Every detail of a Goldfinch bespoke piano is individually handcrafted, right down to the measurement, calculation, manufacture and fitting of each of the 230 strings. There is simply no other way to achieve that rich, velvety inimitable Goldfinch tone.
