Casiotone meets Romero Britto: A collaboration that embodies the joy of creating music with Romero’s distinctive art of happiness and hope. Accessible to anyone, loved by everyone..
Born in 1963, Romero Britto is today one of the most celebrated living visual artists and founder of The Happy Art Movement. Rising to global prominence following the selection of his 1989 work “Absolut Art,” he has since been the official artist for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil and the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. His work has been exhibited at galleries, museums and public art spaces in over 120 countries, including the Louvre in Paris and Hyde Park in London. Through his use of vibrant colors and bold patterns he expresses hope and happiness—his unique style is instantly recognizable, and he has even been described as a modern-day Picasso.
The artwork created for the Casiotone came from the inspiration on music.
Every time I am listening to this music, make me feel energized, make me feel happy, make me feel to create even more artwork."
From Two Unique Perspectives, One Special Keyboard
Casiotone was born to make music accessible to everyone. Romero Britto expresses universal feelings of hope and happiness through his art. Two sides of the same aspiration, the CT-S1FH reflects our passion to bring happiness and joy to as many people as possible through music and art.
Art x Music = Joy!
This is a keyboard whose bright colors just make you want to pick it up and play. Share the experience with friends and family to create a positive, joyful musical space. The artwork, specially designed by Romero Britto, communicates love, hope and happiness. It’s fun just to have around and be around—but even more fun to pick up and play!
Simple, Minimalist Design and a Compelling Piece of Art to Enliven Any Space
The Casiotone CT-S1FH combines the simple elegance of a keyboard instrument with Romero Britto’s unique take on pop art. You can’t help but be charmed by its sheer self-confidence every time you see it. The vibrant artwork beautifully balances the clean, simple lines of the instrument’s body for a keyboard that enlivens any space with its presence—not to mention its sound . . .
Sound That Truly Moves You
Thanks to Casio’s unique AiX Sound Source—crafted and honed over generations of electronic musical instruments—paired with a very capable acoustic system, the CT-S1FH sounds every bit as striking as it looks: the sounds are full of realism and movement, with every detail brought to life with power and confidence. That feeling of having found the right sound will spur your creativity and make you want to play and play.
A Playful Piece of Pop Art but a Serious Instrument at Heart
What started as a novel idea of applying a colorful design to the speaker fabric led to this unique collaboration with Romero Britto. To do justice to the bright colors and detail of the design, we used a dye sublimation printing process that could faithfully communicate Romero’s positive worldview. The result is the brilliant Casio CT-S1FH, a keyboard that is not only fun to look at but deeply satisfying to play.
The Heart of a Champion
At the core of the CT-S1, the AiX Sound Source technology produces the true sounds and experiences of each instrument.
