A COLLABORATION WITH WORLD-RENOWNED MUSICIAN AND MODERN-DAY RENAISSANCE MAN LENNY KRAVITZ
Having long admired STEINWAY & SONS, Lenny Kravitz teamed up with STEINWAY to design the KRAVITZ GRAND LIMITED EDITION of 10 Model B STEINWAYS. For this personal passion project, Lenny and his Kravitz Design team dissected every aspect of the STEINWAY’s construction, looking at the case, action and even the screws to create a completely new look unlike anything STEINWAY has ever produced.
“I see design and music as being the same thing: you start with inspiration and at the end you have a piece of art.”
A CLASSIC EUROPEAN STYLE WITH AN AFRICAN MOTIF
The Kravitz Grand is inspired by African themes from painting, sculpture and fabric design via the Paris art scene of the 1920s. Art Deco styling is juxtaposed with African motifs in an eclectic one-of-a-kind work of art. Fine materials and stunning attention to detail harken to the glamour of this era.
“For the design of this piano, I wanted to mix the classic European style with an African motif. They blend so beautifully together.”
