A Karl Lagerfeld designed Steinway grand piano

If you’re a fan of Karl Lagerfeld a fine grand piano from Steinway, you could be in luck. Lagerfeld designed a Steinway grand piano to commemorate the piano maker’s 150th anniversary in 2003. And there may be some left.

The 150th anniversary Steinway / Karl Lagerfeld piano is bold and impeccably made like Chanel and Fendi’s creative director’s designs usually are. The dramatic piano is red lacquered inside with an elegant black lacquer satin finishes on the top side (Christian Louboutin shoes much?).

“I wanted to create something that could last, something you would not tire of after a short period of time,” said Karl Lagerfeld. “I always liked the secret and mysterious touch of the red lacquer in Japanese boxes, so I used the inside of the Japanese box as my inspiration. Steinway & Sons did a beautiful job, the piano is a masterpiece with all the details, it’s really refined.”

According to the release the black lacquered legs are bent out of 34 layers of genuine hardrock maple and designed for extra stability and longevity. The innovative design features a rectangular music bench created with special red high polished legwork and a black genuine leather seat that is fully adjustable with two white knobs featuring the KL trademark inlay. Lagerfeld’s autograph graces the inner right side of the fallboard.

    Steinway, Inc. should have got the name. All the laws, all the cybersquatting news concerns use of trademark in the DOMAIN. If Trademark is in the content, there may be reason, like news, reviews, and sales. Including a trademark in a domain crosses the line, IMO.
