Steinway & Sons collaborates with Lalique

French luxury brand Lalique joins forces with innovative fine pianomakers Steinway & Sons for the production of Heliconia piano, following the example of many other talented designers and artists throughout the last hundred years who have collaborated with the piano makers.

Being two luxury brands that share the same philosophy about craftsmanship, perfection and art, it is no surprise that Heliconia is an excellent example of their quest for perfection in all aspects of the creative process. In order to bring the instrument to life, the designers decided to work with a signature motif from the Lalique archives – the Heliconia flower.

The result is a piece of art that reflects Lalique’s signature of contrasting clear and frosted crystal finishes and is decorated with 75 Lalique crystals that are pressed, fashioned, cut, engraved, polished and signed at the brand’s factory in Alsace, while every crystal is placed on every individual piece at the Steinway factory in Hamburg
