Avicii’s personal piano to be honoured at Swedish museum
The piano owned by the late Swedish DJ is to be moved to a museum in Stockholm.
Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, was found dead on April 20th in Muscat, Oman, after taking his own life with a broken glass. The tragic death came after he had previously suggested his issues with alcohol where blighting his career.
In a statement released following his tragic passing, the family of Avicii suggested that suicide was the cause of his death. They wrote, “Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul-searching for answers to existential questions. An over-achieving perfectionist who travelled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress.
Tributes have continued to be submitted in their thousands to the DJ and now, as a mark of respect for his work, a Swedish museum will house Avicii’s own personal piano.
Having seen his Los Angeles home sold in a $17.5 million deal, Avicii’s family are now sorting through his personal belongings. While most important and sentimental items will head back to his family in Sweden, many items of furniture will be sold in an estate sale.
His piano, however, will be held in place of honour according to LA real estate expert and designer Lynda Murray:
