Furniture designer Frank Pollaro was commissioned by Steinway and Sons to commission their 600,000th piano titled “The Fibonacci.” The undeniably beautiful piano is constructed by hand from natural Macassar ebony and has been named after the spiral that denotes nature’s geometric principles. The Fibonacci spiral is visible on the lid of the Model D nine foot concert grand piano, in veneer form. Its lines also denote the instrument’s footprint as its body follows the spiral’s outward curve.
“Designing Steinway & Sons’ 600,000th piano was an honor and a challenge,” said Pollaro. “To me, knowing that this piano would become part of history meant that it had to be more than just a beautiful design, but also needed to visually convey a deeper message.”
The stunning instrument took 6000 hours over four years to create and will be showcased at a number of special events over the summer before being put for sale for $2.4 million.
