The BLACK DIAMOND LIMITED EDITION’s pristine silhouette and sonorous tonality is the perfect match for an incomparable pianist who musically expresses the inexpressible. Dakota Jackson, the award-winning designer of this Steinway Limited Edition, takes inspiration from the theory that black diamonds are extraterrestrial in origin — the result of an exploding supernova. Jackson views the BLACK DIAMOND’s brilliance and rarity as simpatico with the genius and spirit of virtuoso STEINWAY ARTIST Lang Lang.
“I believe that the BLACK DIAMOND is the visual expression of infinite possibility.”
THE BLACK DIAMOND
an exquisite work of art
Every diamond is categorized according to four distinct properties: color, carat, cut and clarity. Black diamonds, with their extraordinary origins, are the rarest — and most prized.
“The BLACK DIAMOND has not only the look — but the sound, the emotion, the touch.”
“Working with Dakota Jackson on the Black Diamond has been one miracle after another. I think every pianist has, in his head, a dream of the ideal shape of their piano. But you have to have an incredible partner to achieve this dream. Dakota is a magician; and he can talk about the illusions, the emotions, the reflections — and concretize thoughts into design.”
