Opulent, celestial, sublime.
The Baby by Based Upon is a spectacular collaboration between Goldfinch and Based Upon (basedupon.com), a London-based artist studio, renowned for its unique and innovative contemporary British art. The timeless beauty of the Twist—a unique Based Upon sculpture—is the result of nine years of design evolution. To date the Twist has appeared as a handful of luxury, limited edition tables and consoles and is now reimagined as an astonishing piano.
The form is based on the repeating spiral patterns omnipresent throughout our universe. From star-studded galaxies to the florets in a sunflower, the fluid curves of the Baby Piano depict these mysterious waves and patterns, so prevalent in nature.
The tri-oval top elevates, appearing to twist away from its base, to reveal a baby grand piano. Exclusive hand-finished metals and seductively tactile resins reflect the artist’s studies of the earth’s surface—and scenes taken from outer space.
