Client: Aminé Our task: Create a one-of-a-kind instrument to help Aminé, a chart topping rapper, make his national TV debut.
How it came to life: Using his love for bananas as inspiration, we built Aminé a playable piano made of his favorite fruit. With a DIY budget and short timeline, we designed, coded, fabricated, and shipped the world’s first Banano. It was played live on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
