In our Brisbane store, a very special limited edition grand piano is currently available.
In 2005, on the occasion of the 125th Anniversary of the 1880 foundation of a Steinway & Sons factory in Hamburg, Count Albrecht von Goertz, the creator of arguably the world’s most beautiful sports car, the BMW 507, designed this anniversary grand piano which is notable for its simplicity.
Taking tradition into the future with Steinway
True to his design principles, Count Goertz, chose to retain the classic Steinway black finish, focusing instead on endowing various components with the sleek lines for which he is renowned. The result was a timeless design with a hint of sensuality.
Not one to tamper with the perfection of the Steinway’s iconic shape, Count Goertz decided to accentuate the finish, creating a dynamic interplay between contrasting satin and highly polished surfaces.
By focusing on the essentials, Count Goertz’s 125th Anniversary Limited Edition Grand Piano, this very special Model A-188, is remarkably elegant and beautiful.
Steinway & Sons produce special pianos in a limited number to celebrate special anniversaries and events. Approaching the world’s leading designers including Karl Lagerfeld, Albrecht von Goertz, Dale Chihuly, Dakota Jackson, these pianos are destined to become serious collector’s items in the future.
The 125th Anniversary limited edition in our Brisbane store is No. 2 of 125.
