Baldi for Steinway
Over the last 150 years, Baldi has impressed the entire world giving birth to breath-taking monumental artworks and amazing Renaissance-inspired jewels for the home.
Today the Brand boasts an official partnership with Steinway and Sons, based on the undisputable capability of both the Companies to amaze with their respective creations.
Sharing passion for art and craftsmanship, the mission is to create everlasting Grand pianos, enhanced by unmistakable details typical of the Florentine background, conferring that touch of unicity and preciousness that elevate the instruments to collectable masterpieces. The two lines are respectively named “Armonia limited edition” and “Special Edition Grand pianos”.
All the pianos names are thought to recall melodious and suggestive sounds like “Acanto”, “Impero”, “Muse”, “Richelieu” and “Sherazade. The designs are common for both the lines, different only because to make the Grand piano actual unique pieces, Baldi uses precious stones for coating; in addition to 24k, gold plated and chiseled bronze.
Astonishment, surprise. Investigating the time and with the latter that thin equilibrium between life and death. Gjoen’s pieces have the ability to turn dark and strong imagery into something tender, soft. According to the artist’s philosophy, the precious stones creating the two capsule collections presented at Salone del Mobile 2019, encapsulate at the same time both the beauty of nature and its power. The resistance of the oak and of the olive tree made out of hand-chiseled bronze take over on the 20th century’s icons, regarding the weapon’s manufacturing.
Recalling the Zar treasures adorning their palaces, Pietrof reinterprets them using Baldi’s know-how. Protagonist of his works of art is the swan, which represents a meeting point of all the world’s cultures. An analogy that brings immediately back to mind the mysterious knight appearing in Parzival medieval epic poem’s last character, to whom Richard Wagner was inspired to create the Opera “Lonhengrin”. With the same mastery with which the composer accomplishes his music, Pavel Pietrof conveys his own art through creations characterized by the high “compositional” coefficient.
For almost 30 years, Bojola has created objects and shaped spaces that transcend aesthetic boundaries, working with opposites and exploiting the creative tension between classic and contemporary styles. The year 2005 marked the birth of a mutually inspiring partnership that continues to bear extraordinary fruits: from the rock-crystal baths, basins and fountains to the one-of-a-kind works of art highlighted in the collection of monumental clocks. No matter the scale, each one of Bojola's creations for Baldi is refined, bold and timeless.
Duccio Maria Gambi
“The work began through a first cognitive survey of that rich, materic background, quintessential of Baldi. Since I got then to the context of rocks, hardstones, minerals, I discovered that the Brand was passionate to the materia itself, for its essence even before the final form. I figured out that there is a starting fascination, which does not foresees the material for the representation, but rather defines the representation and the crystallization through the material in an object. I therefore wanted to narrate about this primitive side, the beauty of the natural element.”
