When playing pianos, the comfort of the stool is also important. The design of this stool was made with the assumption that you will be sitting for long periods of time, unlike typical interior stools. "As for the comfort of the seat, we made it by carving out the wooden seat and embedding cushions into it to achieve maximum comfort when playing. Usually, when we make stools, we don't consider sitting on it for long periods of time. However, this time we emphasized the comfort for piano players as a unique functional aspect of the stool. By using thick urethane foam, we made a stool that can be sat on for long periods of time. In addition, we made the cushion part look thinner by embedding it in the wooden seat giving it a sophisticated look," explains Takuro. Anna, who had multiple pianists try out the stool to test its comfort, nods and adds, "It's because of that thickness that you don't get tired even after playing for a long time. The people who actually tried it out said they could sit and play the piano or practice for a long time, and they complimented how comfortable the seat was compared to conventional models." According to Anna, the cushion fabric was also chosen from amongst multiple samples by both CRASH GATE and CASIO's designers to harmonize with the "PX-S7000" speaker fabric and piano cover. This stool is the product of the combined perspectives and attention to detail of an interior design brand and CASIO’s own designers. "Not only did they listen to our wishes as a musical instrument manufacturer, but they also made use of their specific know-how as an interior design company. CASIO alone could not have made this stool," says Anna.
