Steinway and Sons over the years have partnered with various companies to create luxury versions of their pianos. Their latest collaboration brings them in touch with Italian luxury furniture and accessory manufacturer Baldi Home Jewels for a collection named “Armonia Limited Edition by Baldi”. The new range features five deferent designs with harmonious names Acanto, Impero, Muse, Richelieu and Sherazad. Each design in the special collection is limited to just ten examples.
Baldi Home scoured their extensive archives looking for design inspirations and found beautiful intricate bronze patterns to decorate the ebonized legs and sides of Steinway’s high polished O-180 and B-211 models. All the bronze work including lost-wax cast and hand-chisel using artisan’s self-made tools were done at Baldi workshop in Florence.
Customers also have the option to upgrade to much fancier “Ad-Personam Special Edition”. In this version, they offer additional bells and whistles by way of precious stone decorations. Even the old fashioned grand pianos these days can’t avoid new technology. The Armonia Limited Edition by Baldi collection is available in self-playing styles equipped with Steinway SPIRIO, the world’s finest high-resolution player piano system. The SPIRIO app is available on iOS to use with iPad or iPhone.
