the research


In 2017-18, Future Piano were supported by Innovate UK to run a Design Foundations project. This was an intensive period of human-centred product design led by Keechdesign, with all the team members involved. We also had invaluable and detailed input from an amazing array of pianists, piano shops owners, teachers and pupils.

Here you can see some excerpts from the extensive documents we created and also read about the very early research that confirmed we were onto something important and useful for many people.
