STEINWAY & SONS marked an auspicious moment in our rich history with our uncompromisingly crafted 600,000th piano, The Fibonacci — a feat of artistry, engineering and precision, designed by master artisan Frank Pollaro.
The Fibonacci spiral represents a numerological sequence that reflects the geometric harmony found in nature, from the sunflower to the pineapple to the continuum of the galaxy itself. The Fibonacci spiral permits the Nautilus shell to grow without changing its shape. STEINWAY & SONS, too, evolves while retaining our historic form. Our logo itself spans time, one ‘S’ looking back to legacy, its mirror looking forward to the future, capped with an orb symbolizing our unwavering pursuit of perfection as we seek to empower artists to unleash the purest expression of their art.
Employed in mathematics as far back as the first century, the Fibonacci sequence epitomizes the golden ratio, a balance of pleasing proportions found throughout history across architecture, art, design and even music. The Fibonacci from STEINWAY & SONS and Frank Pollaro embodies this perfect harmonious balance that connects us to and inspires beauty in so many forms.
“Combining the universal languages of music and mathematics suddenly made perfect sense.”
