So long as it plays ok and complements the surroundings then why not ?

Please see the piano designed by Charles Rennie Macintosh.

It's the James Webb space piano!

Looks like it was 3D printed.

I have no opinion about the appearance but I'll bet the moving would be a nightmare. And case repairs would be really tricky.

Fazioli certainly knows how to promote the company with these one-off designs!

It was spec'ed to suit the interior of a an arty, high end hotel not your replica of a vienese ballroom. Horses for courses.

The design commission was to reflect the architecture of the building. I think the stacked wood captures the appearance of the open balconies, and the solid areas reflects the windows of the offices. I like the building more than the piano, but I'd say it did a pretty good job honoring the design request.
