Harmonize with Your Piano: The Story of the Petervary Smart Piano Bench
Have you ever found yourself sitting on a piano bench, lost in the melodies, only to realize that the bench isn’t doing you any favours? It’s either too high, too low, or just plain uncomfortable. The Petervary Smart Piano Bench emerged from this very dilemma - a solution for pianists who crave perfect harmony not just in their music, but also in their seating. Let’s dive into the story behind this innovative creation.
Our founder, Adam Petervary discovered the need for such an innovative product after decades of adopting stiff, uncomfortable postures during piano practice and playing, which acted as a hindrance to playing to the best of his abilities, also causing anxiety before a concert. All in all, the regular piano benches were just not serving as a helpful tool.
Why hadn’t anyone thought of improving this integral part of a pianist’s experience?
Therefore, our founder’s vision was clear; a bench that adapted to the pianist, not the other way around. This wouldn’t just be a piece of furniture, but a smart tool to enhance the musical journey. It would use state-of-the-art technology to analyse the pianist's posture and make real-time adjustments. Moreover, it would cater to the pianist’s personal preferences and remember them for future sessions. The idea was revolutionary.
Transforming Adam’s vision into reality meant a diverse team of professionals was needed. Colleagues Dr. Jeno Pali, and Tamas Meszaros, along with Adam, form the trifecta responsible for every aspect of creating the bench, and running the business. Jeno Pali, medical biologist and the CFO, is responsible for both the medical background regarding the ergonomic dynamics of the chair, while Tamas Meszaros, sales specialist and CMO, carries the marketing and sales portion of the company.
As the final product was born, it is evident the Petervary Smart Piano Bench isn’t just a bench; it's an experience. Upon sitting, the pianist's height, weight, and posture, can be adjusted using the bench. If you have a preferred setting, the bench remembers it. Its minimalistic design ensures it fits into any setting - from a grand concert hall to a cozy living room.
The journey of the Petervary Smart Piano Bench is a testament to what can be achieved when passion meets innovation. The story behind it isn’t just about a product; it’s about understanding a problem deeply and finding a solution that changes the game. The Petervary team has not only provided a solution for pianists around the world, but they've also set a precedent in merging art with technology. The future of music, it seems, will not just be in the notes, but also in the experience.
A note from Adam Petervary encapsulates the essence of the product;
“For years as a pianist practicing up to 10 hours daily, I grappled with back pain and difficulty accessing the piano keys at either end. This sparked an idea: a sliding piano seat to maintain optimal posture throughout play. Our initial tests were promising, hinting at potential shifts in piano learning and technique.
However, the development journey with my team was not without challenges. The initial problems we encountered were more complex than anticipated, stretching our creativity. Today, we've extended this idea beyond pianists, recognizing its utility in sedentary professions that require accessing a large workspace, like lab technicians operating various equipment or receptionists juggling multiple tasks.
Our side-to-side movement is ready to be shared with the world. Our early-bird offer is beginning soon, where pianists will have the ability to purchase the bench and discover a new way of learning and playing. Despite hurdles on our journey, our unwavering belief has always seen us through. We look forward to sharing our product with the world.”
