THE SHIGERU KAWAI OFFERS AN UNPARALLELED MUSICAL EXPERIENCE TO THE WORLD.

MULTIMILLIONAIRE THAILAND

Since 1927 the name Kawai has stood for quality pianos. In 2001 the Shigeru Kawai series launched and has enjoyed great popularity with pianists and institutions around the world.

A new era began for Kawai in 2012, when the Shigeru Kawai "Concert Series" was released.

These "Concert Series" models are distinguished by elegant design, high quality materials, technological advancements, sensitive touch and perfect sound. The Shigeru Kawai offers an unparalleled musical experience to the world.

Dream
OVER ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO, IN A HUMBLE WORKSHOP IN JAPAN, KOICHI KAWAI EMBARKED UPON A JOURNEY – A SPIRITUAL QUEST TO DESIGN AND BUILD A PIANO THAT WOULD ONE DAY BE CALLED “THE FINEST”. A GENERATION LATER, THIS DREAM BURNED INTENSELY IN THE HEART OF SHIGERU KAWAI.

To Shigeru, the dream represented not just his origins, but his destiny – an unrelenting force that would launch a lifetime of devotion in the pursuit of perfection. In the Shigeru Kawai piano, you will see not just his labour and his love – but his life.

Honour
INDIVIDUAL’S “WORDS AND DEEDS” INEXTRICABLY WITH THE VALUE AND SUBSTANCE OF HIS NAME. THERE IS NO GREATER DEMONSTRATION OF HONOUR, NO GREATER COMMITMENT, THAN TO PLACE ONE’S NAME UPON THE WORK OF ONE’S HANDS.

From initial design, to the selection of the finest materials, to the handcrafted assembly by Master Piano Artisans, each Shigeru piano is a work of uncompromising craftsmanship, a symbol of unending devotion – a profound expression of pride and honour.

For Shigeru Kawai, there could be no other way.

MULTIMILLIONAIRE THAILAND
Passion
THE PASSION FOR EXCELLENCE DWELLS DEEPLY WITHIN THE HEART OF EVERY SHIGERU CRAFTSMAN.

Like members of a great orchestra, each craftsman brings forth a seasoned wealth of skill and artistry that compels the whole to surpass the sum of its parts. Day by day, the craftsman strives to leave an indelible mark upon each creation – an inexpressible emblem of intense desire and duty.

It is this symphony of passionate energies that has elevated the Shigeru piano to the lofty strata shared by few and respected by all.

RESPONSIBILITY
CARING FOR THE PLANET COMES NATURALLY TO THOSE WHO CREATE THE SHIGERU KAWAI PIANOS. AFTER ALL, NATURE ITSELF PROVIDES THE MATERIALS FROM WHICH THESE MAGNIFICENT INSTRUMENTS ARE CRAFTED.

In 1997, our Ryuyo Grand Piano Factory became the first in the piano industry to receive ISO14001, the world’s most prestigious certification for excellence in environmental management. Work groups continuously monitor and improve emissions and waste control, green procurement, and a host of other energy conservation and environmental protection measures. The Kawai Forest Project has already planted over 350,000 seedlings with a goal to have over 500,000 new trees planted by the end of the decade.

These vital efforts will continue to be a part of every piano we build. That is our promise to you – and to our world.

Soul
A SHIGERU PIANO IS MUCH MORE THAN THE INTELLIGENT APPLICATION OF MATERIAL, LABOUR AND DESIGN. IT IS AN ART FORM BORN NOT FROM THE HEAD, BUT FROM THE HEART.

Thus, the craftsman does far more than simply “build” it – he brings it to life. The sensitive nurturing of every part, every joint, every subtle nuance vests each piano with an intangible quality – a soul – that lives on from generation to generation.

And those who own a Shigeru piano know that they possess not merely an instrument, but a partner in the musical pursuit of dreams.

HANDMADE

Serenity
TIME HAS LITTLE RELEVANCE IN THE CREATION OF A SHIGERU PIANO. THERE IS NO RUSH TO COMPLETION. NO PRESSURE TO PERFORM, NO DEMANDING DEADLINES.

Each artisan understands that the ultimate priority is perfection. This explains why every element of the crafting process is three to five times longer, and why the Shigeru workshop is a place of unruffled focus and serenity. If there is an underlying secret behind the resonant song of the Shigeru grand piano, it is this tranquil place of origin where heart, mind and spirit are given the time to breathe and the freedom to soar.

MULTIMILLIONAIRE THAILAND
Intuition
THE ABILITY TO SELECT THE RIGHT WOOD, THE KIND THAT CAN SPEAK FLUENTLY IN EVERY DIALECT OF EMOTION FROM FIERY FERVOUR TO GENTLE WHISPERS OF TONE, IS AN ART IN ITSELF.

Whether it is select spruce for the soundboard, premium mahogany for the hammers, or choice maple for the bridge, the material chosen for every distinct part of a world-class piano must be perfect for the task. Shigeru craftsmen have spent decades refining this uncommon ability to discern between the satisfactory and the sublime. It is this venerable wisdom, this intuition, that one can hear and feel in every note of a Shigeru piano.

MULTIMILLIONAIRE THAILAND
Advancement
TRUE ARTISTRY CAN NEVER STOP STRIVING. BY ITS OWN NATURE, IT MUST CONTINUALLY ADVANCE AND EVOLVE. THAT HAS ALWAYS BEEN ITS PATH TO GREATNESS.

While our time-honoured methods of origin are diligently and reverently applied, Shigeru artisans embrace every modern method for perfecting the art of the piano. Our anechoic chamber enables the comprehensive analysis of pure tone. Advanced materials enhance stability and consistency of touch. Digital design tools optimise the construction and performance of every component part.

In the world of pianos, it is not enough to revel in the past. True to its own nature, the Shigeru piano is the epitome of progress and a vision of the future.
