Lang Lang Black Diamond designed by Dakota Jackson
The latest Limited Edition of Steinway & Sons is another milestone in the history of the company. This piano has been specially designed by virtuoso pianist Lang Lang and marks the first time that a classical pianist has been invited to join the design process of a Steinway & Sons grand piano. In collaboration with renowned US designer Dakota Jackson, who has already created two Steinway pianos in the past, Lang Lang developed a grand piano embodying his talent and passion.
With its reflections and expressive lines, the Lang Lang Black Diamond exemplifies the black diamond, a rare and precious diamond whose origin is shrouded in mystery. The design of the grand piano combines the elegance of either classical ebony high polish or Macassar ebony with the brilliance of chrome. Three slender diamond-shaped silhouettes punctuate the line of the rim. It features metallic accents on the legs, the music desk and the back of the case.
The personal signature of Lang Lang
is not only an expression of the passion he has invested in the design of the grand piano but also when performing on stage.
The modern but timeless design refers to all grand pianos which Dakota Jackson has been created for Steinway & Sons.
The medallion in the inner rim
symbolizes the uniqueness of each Lang Lang Black Diamond.
A special decal on the soundboard
is a further special feature of the Lang Lang Black Diamond.
