Steinway & Sons Launches Heliconia

Steinway & Sons has launched Heliconia, a new piano designed in collaboration with French crystal maker Lalique. Heliconia is the fruit of an extraordinary collaboration between two outstanding luxury brands, each committed to the high quality and craftsmanship. Their shared quest for perfection make Steinway & Sons and Lalique the ideal partners. Both have been shaped by a long and close relationship with the arts and subsequently, share the sheer joy in creating something beautiful for generations to come. Their collective passions and values are apparent throughout their work, most notably in their shared philosophies on craftsmanship and history. To build an instrument combining the best of Steinway & Sons with the best of Lalique, the designers decided to work with a signature motif from the Lalique archives: the Heliconia flower, originally created by Marie-Claude Lalique, granddaughter of Rene Lalique. The 75 Lalique crystals that decorate each piano are all pressed, fashioned, cut, engraved, polished and signed at the Lalique factory in Alsace; each crystal is then carefully placed on every individual piano at the Steinway factory in Hamburg. The design of the Heliconia flower is a combination of crystals and metal incrustations and can be found on the lid, the legs and the case of the piano. The result is a beautiful piece of art, which showcases Lalique's signature of contrasting clear and frosted crystal finishes. Available in black or white as grand pianos, the translucent Heliconia crystals seem to be suspended on a stem of silver. The piano will be available at authorised Steinway dealers.
