It might not be clad in 24-karat gold, but Steinway’s latest limited edition piano is also exquisite, even more than first-mentioned. New stunning Arabesque – a Limited Edition piano by Steinway & Sons emerged as result of collaboration with renowned furniture designer Dakota Jackson in honor of comapany’s 160th anniversary. It will go on sale this month and will be limited to only 50 pieces.
“In Dakota Jackson we found a designer and craftsman whose passion matches our own,” said Michael Sweeney, CEO of Steinway Musical Instruments and President of Steinway & Sons. “For this collaboration we chose the Steinway Model B, frequently selected by Steinway Artists and other accomplished players for their residential purposes. Together with Dakota we have created an instrument at the highest levels of both design and musicality. We are pleased to share this accomplishment with 50 families around the world.”
The cooperation between Steinway & Sons and Dakota Jackson began in 2000 with the development of the highly successful Tricentennial Limited Edition for the 300th anniversary of the piano. Steinway & Sons, long recognized as the maker of the world’s finest pianos, began creating Art Case pianos in 1853. “To me, Steinway is synonymous with the word ‘piano’,” Jackson said. “I wouldn’t consider designing a piano for any other company.”
