Timeless and beautiful – the new Special Collection from Steinway & Sons is the result of an extraordinary and creative collaboration between two renowned manufactories which have both dedicated themselves to the highest standards of quality and craftsmanship:
Steinway & Sons and the distinguished French glassmaker Lalique. Their mutual pursuit of perfection provides the ideal foundation for this partnership. And not only that: both companies cherish the same values and want to bring joy to as many people as possible throughout the world.
Available in black or white, this grand piano exudes beauty and elegance, enriching your home not only musically, but also aesthetically. The challenge was to create an instrument which would unite the qualities and characteristics of Steinway & Sons with those of Lalique. The designers therefore opted for a classic design from Lalique’s rich archives. Originally designed in 1992 by Marie-Claude Lalique – the granddaughter of René Lalique – the heliconia flower forms the perfect decor for these fine instruments. Lovingly crafted at the Lalique manufactory in Alsace, 75 crystals make the instrument shine, while silver-coloured inlays are decoratively arranged into the design, creating interesting reflections as well as a sense of clarity.
Each grand piano is fitted with a special plaque on the inside of the housing, which can be personalised if desired.
The grand pianos are available in sizes O-180, A-188 and B-211. As well as the standard black or white finishes, special requests are also possible, such as the use of high-quality veneers or additional colours.
