A Hungarian startup company has not yet unveiled their trailblazing product officially, but already has many successes to show for it. Pianist Éva Szalai posted a short video on Instagram a few days ago of herself personally testing the Petervary Smart Piano Bench at the company’s small workshop. Éva’s previous videos plateaued at a few thousand views, so the artist was surprised when her short video went viral, reaching tens of thousands views within hours.
The video continued to spread across the Internet, reaching thousands of pianists. In just four days, Eva’s video surpassed a million views, garnering outstanding domestic and international success. In addition to fifty thousand likes, the Instagram reel maintains the attention of those interested, evident in that the number of views is continuously increasing by the minute. The added comments clearly prove that this innovative device is filling a gap in the market as pianists from all over the world are reacting positively. Some pianists have simply expressed their interest with the phrase: ‘A must have!’
Petervary’s online channels have also observed an increase in traffic in recent days. Since the company has not officially started their communication and interaction with the public yet, the sudden spike in interest admittedly caused some difficulties for the Petervary team, as they received dozens of pre-orders and collaboration offers via the official website. The communications team has responded quickly to the arising questions from the general public, and founder Adam Petervary (also the creator of the bench) took to Instagram to provide answers for the public’s burning questions with an exciting mini series to show what goes on behind the scenes.
So, what exactly is this device that has the pianist community so excited?

It is a unique technological invention, a combination of comfort and health. It is Petervary’s smart piano bench, whose engineers have focused primarily on maximizing the health and comfort of players. Thanks to the ergonomic design, the creators have managed to make the use of this bench an exceptional experience for pianists. In doing so, they have introduced innovation to a device that has remained almost completely unchanged for one hundred and fifty years, subsequently creating a new world market.
The revolutionary new feature, which caught the attention of internet users all over the world, is the seat which is capable of sliding from one side to another. This bold new innovative element allows pianists to adopt the optimal straight-back posture anywhere across the keyboard, as the player can easily slide across the entire space with ease. This optimal sitting form was previously only possible when sat located centrally in relation to the bench. The optimal posture, which can always be maintained when using the Petervary bench, also protects the spine and ensures orthopedic health. With this original, first of its kind product, piano playing transforms into an ergonomic motion, and piano-related difficulties solve themselves, with the risk of fatigue and injury as a result of prolonged playing diminishing to a minimum.
Another advantage of the Petervary Smart Piano Bench is its motorized height adjustment,
which also makes it possible, for the first time ever, to adjust and store height to the nearest tenth of a millimeter. This gives pianists the unique ability to set the optimal seat height with a single touch of a button while sitting in the bench, and then store that value in any Petervary bench, on an NFC chip, or in their phone, and change the height of any bench to their preferred value with a single touch in the future.
The great interest in the innovation and unique functionality of the product is also reflected in the high number of views of the leaked video. This widespread response and recognition clearly shows the demand from pianists and music lovers for a product that offers quality comfort and ergonomics.
Péterváry Ltd. is preparing for another important announcement on July 20, 2023, which remains a secret for now, and is also currently working on a collaboration agreement. The company continuously informs interested parties and individuals of their development and progress via their official pages and website.
