Twin­kling the Ivories

Hong Kong Tatler Society - - Best Of Life -

If mu­sic is the food of love, then a crys­ta­l­en­crusted pi­ano must be the ic­ing on the cake. Half a mil­lion Swarovski sparklers bedeck this Stein­way to the tune of £420,000. It was cus­tom built by UK-based Goldfinch Pi­anos in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Bri­tish con­tem­po­rary artist Lau­ren Baker for a sheikh in Doha. It took six months to make and each crys­tal was painstak­ingly ap­plied by hand. But it’s not just about looks; the pi­ano in­cor­po­rates cut­ting-edge tech­nol­ogy.
