Tokyo, March 31, 2020 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today that its Privia PX-S1000 digital piano was selected as a winner of the “Red Dot Award: Product Design,” in the prestigious Red Dot Award 2020 international design competition.
The Red Dot Award has a history of over 60 years and is one of the top three design awards in the world. It was established in 1955 by the German design institution, Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen.
This year, the PX-S1000 was selected from among more than 6,500 entries from all over the world, including automobiles, home appliances, household goods, and buildings. This is the first time that Casio has won the award in the Product Design category.
The PX-S1000 is a slim and stylish digital piano for adults who enjoy playing as a hobby. With the PX-S1000, Casio returned to the original Privia series concept of a “Private Piano” that can be enjoyed in one’s own private space. It offers a keyboard touch and beautiful sound that feels like a grand piano, despite featuring the world’s slimmest depth.
The operation panel uses touch sensors and boasts a simple, state-of-the-art design. The built-in speaker and battery allow it to be played in a variety of places, and the audio playback function uses Bluetooth ® to expand the range of situations where the piano can be used.
