Kawai Musical Instruments, founded by Koichi Kawai, is a well-known piano manufacturing company in Japan. Kawai lived beside reed organ builder Torakusu Yamaha and worked under him as an apprentice. After Yamaha’s death and the diversification of the Yamaha Corporation, Kawai started his own company. The upcoming New Haven Auctions event presents a Kawai model S-K7 grand piano. The limited-edition, semi-concert grand piano was designed by master craftsman Nobumichi Suzuki.
The auction also showcases lounge chairs and coffee tables by designer Walter Lamb for Brown Jordan. In the 1940s, Lamb designed his first pieces of bronze furniture while experimenting with tubing obtained from sunken U.S Navy ships. The available bronze chaise lounge chairs by the designer are composed of rust-proof bronze frames. They have UV-stable, hand-wrapped cording and flexible seats. Also showcased is a Bulgari Parentesi 18-karat yellow gold necklace set with 144 diamonds. The Parentisi collection, notable for its interlocking design, was inspired by ancient Roman architecture. The auction will feature paintings by Heather Braginton-Smith, a Steinway baby grand piano, Eero Sarrinen furniture for Knoll, a Gaetano Guadagnini cello, and Venini Fulvio Bianconi glassware as well. Interested collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
