HANDSON Grand Piano Paper Craft Kit (PePaKuRa)

Please note that packaging color is now standardized to a white background

Pianos are one of the most popular instruments. Its mechanism may lead one to acknowledge it as a machine opposed to a musical instrument. This kit contains the most parts in our lineup. The lid can be opened or closed.

"PePaKuRa" Concept

Eager to create more opportunities for people to freely enjoy the arts, HANDSON run our own musical performance projects in addition to planning, developing and promoting educational tools.
Japan has a strong culture of artistry based around paper, as represented by the well-known art of origami. HANDSON wanted to develop products which would allow more people to experience and engage with these art forms.
HANDSON's PePaKuRa paper modeling kit allows users to recreate the functional and structural beauty of musical instruments using only paper. In order to faithfully reproduce the kinds of elegant detail found on the original instruments, the PePaKuRa kits were developed by merging skilled design with the perspectives of the professionals involved HANDSON's musical performance projects.
Each part is laser-cut and instructions are in language-free illustration. The kits are easy to put together but will require some patience and skill on your part!
