A year after the premiere of the piano designed by Robert Majkut in Milan we witnessed an extraordinary event – the first Whaletone in the Netherlands purchased by the owner of Fletcher Hotels was raised by a crane to a height of 60 meters above the ground! The new hotel belonging to the chain of Fletcher Hotels is still under construction – only after placing the crate with piano on site the building can be completed.
The hoisting event was opened by the Fletcher Hotels network owner Chris Luken and Dutch virtuoso pianist Wibi Soerjadi.
Whaletone will be placed in the center of the luxurious Sky Lounge bar on the 17th floor of the Fletcher Hotel Amsterdam. The piano was produced per a special request in the color of deep brown and white to harmonize with the interior designed by renowned Dutch designer Robert Kolenik.
The grand opening of Fletcher Hotel in Amsterdam is planned for January 2013. The building was designed by Benthem Crouwel Architects as a characteristic blue tower – the new landmark for Amsterdam.
