THE TEAGUE SKETCH 1111

A MID-CENTURY masterpiece

LIMITED EDITION

A MID-CENTURY masterpiece

STEINWAY & SONS is pleased to offer THE TEAGUE SKETCH 1111, a masterpiece of mid-century modernism and a celebration of the Centenary STEINWAY, designed by American industrial designer and architect Walter Dorwin Teague to commemorate STEINWAY’S 100th anniversary in 1953.

Coined by Cara Greenburg in her seminal book Mid-Century Modern: Furniture of the 1950s, the moniker’s clean lines evoke the post–World War II landscape, spanning architecture, furniture and technology — prizing function and rejecting embellishment. Pops of color and a connection with nature round out the aesthetic.

INSPIRED design

American industrial designer, architect, illustrator, man of letters and entrepreneur Walter Dorwin Teague (1883–1960), a classicist and traditionalist, was a critical figure in the spread of mid-century modernism in America. Teague’s designs were exhibited at the 1939 New York World’s Fair, and his lasting influences include work for Eastman Kodak, Ford, Polaroid, and, of course, STEINWAY.

FORM and function

Simple and sophisticated, THE TEAGUE SKETCH 1111 comes in a dark-walnut veneer or a satin ebony finish, with a simplified case, tapered legs, tailored arms, and subtle brass ferrule accents. Available as a model M (the STEINWAY “studio grand”), THE TEAGUE SKETCH 1111 is a natural fit in mid-century styled homes and in contemporary styled décors.

THE TEAGUE SKETCH 1111 is also a STEINWAY & SONS SPIRIO, the world’s finest high resolution player piano.
