Background to Exhibit

As one of its approaches for universally delivering the appeal of modern musical
instruments and AV products, Yamaha's Design Laboratory has undertaken a number
of initiatives from the design perspective. Having exhibited at the Milano
Salone in Italy for four consecutive years from 2005, the laboratory has also
held exhibitions at the Yamaha Ginza Studio in Tokyo on three occasions since
2010. Yamaha's participation at this Biennale Internationale Design
Saint-Étienne marks the Company's first appearance at an international design
exhibition for around five years. 

Exhibit Theme

Yamaha will be exhibiting under its DESIGN RECIPE concept. Likened to a recipe
for preparing ingredients in a variety of ways, Yamaha will showcase the design
style that has provided the wellspring for the uniqueness of its products and
the freshness of its design approach. On display will be 5 new or previously
released musical instruments and AV products and 12 prototypes, 8 of which will
be seen for the first time in public.
Further details on the display content can be found at Yamaha's website:

Comment from Yamaha Design Laboratory General Manager Manabu Kawada

Yamaha marked the 125th anniversary of the commencement of its operations in
October last year. This year also represents a milestone for the Design
Laboratory, which was established 50 years ago. Through this exhibition, we want
to convey our uniqueness to as many people as possible: a uniqueness that is
imbued with sensitivity and the Yamaha design philosophy that has been handed
down during our long history.
