Steinway & Sons, manufacturer of the world’s finest pianos, has unveiled the company’s 600,000th piano. Named “The Fibonacci,” this piano is stunningly designed by master artisan, Frank Pollaro. This one-of-a-kind instrument that embodies luxury and quality craftsmanship is handcrafted from six individual logs of Macassar Ebony, creating a fluid design that represents the geometric harmony found in nature. The fluid design of the Fibonacci spiral is accentuated by synthetic ivory inlays and bronze details. It took more than 6,000 hours of work over a four-year period to build this piano.
This piano is destined to become an important piece of cultural history, taking its place of honor amongst previous milestone models that the company has created. The 100,000th was originally given to the United States White House and is now part of the permanent collection at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C., while the 300,000 piano currently resides in the East Room of the White House.
The Fibonacci is a Steinway & Sons Model D piano, nine foot concert grand, priced at $2.4 million. In addition to the original 600,000th version, Steinway & Sons will create up to six exclusive, limited edition Model B pianos (6’10.5″) inspired by the same design.
