The GPX-F1 Facet Grand Piano won the Grand Prize in the Roland Digital Piano Design Awards back in 2015. This competition challenged product designers around the world to come up with a ground-breaking brand new digital piano concept. There were over international 120 entries, and the winning design was the creation of American Jong Chan Kim.

In 2019 Roland decided to turn Kim’s ideas into an actual working instrument. The company assembled a small design team at their headquarters in Hamamatsu, Japan. Using Roland’s latest PureAcoustic modelling software and their Acoustic Projection System a fully functioning GPX-F1 Facet Grand Piano was constructed. And it was unveiled to the world at this week’s CES (2020) exhibition in Las Vegas.
