In honor of Steinway’s 160th anniversary, we are proud to announce our latest collaboration with renowned furniture designer Dakota Jackson: the stunning Arabesque – a Limited Edition with a unique and innovative design approach.
Like the intimate, lyrical creation by Robert Schumann entitled “Arabesque”, or Debussy’s pensive masterpiece of the same name, the 160th Anniversary Limited Edition Arabesque by Dakota Jackson touches the soul with a pure beauty. Conceived by Dakota Jackson for the 160th anniversary of Steinway & Sons, the instrument captivates with exquisite design accents, giving an impression of fluidity and movement. In ballet, an “arabesque” is a pose held suspended in time, with the limbs of the dancer impossibly extended. It conveys a sense of channeled energy, flowing freely through the tips of the fingers and toes, outward and upward into the ether.
“To me,” Jackson says, “Steinway is synonymous with Piano. I wouldn’t consider designing a piano for any other company.”
