Discover the Harrods Edelweiss Piano in Shanghai

Edelweiss Pianos welcome the first collaboration of its kind with internationally renowned, luxury department store, Harrods.

As an experienced partner to Harrods, Edelweiss Pianos have been displayed in its Knightsbridge store for over 4 years. Nestled on the third floor of the London flagship branch the pianos are a successful addition to the home and entertainment range available to clientele.

‘We were delighted to be asked to be part of the exclusive Harrods residence in Shanghai.’ Says Tomas Norman, Managing Director at Edelweiss. ‘What better location to place a UK, handmade, self-play piano, than a quintessential British tearoom?

When Harrods interior design team asked Edelweiss to be part of the stunning new interior, we could not wait to take up the challenge and get designing’.

The Residence, Shanghai

Piano Design Reaches New Heights

Edelweiss is not afraid to push the boundaries of piano design with the likes of The Solis and the Silex which defy ergonomics with their shape and form.

The Harrods piano is the first of its kind. Designed to suit the interior of the decadent and colonial style building in Shanghai. The location itself has an antique floor, in keeping with its art deco style which is at the heart of the interior design. Located in Taikoo Hui, the residence opened in October 2021 and serves the quintessential British afternoon tea experience of teas, fresh pastries, and champagne, among others.

‘We worked alongside the Harrods Interior Design team to create a piano that sat seamlessly into the décor but also made a statement and provided a practical focal piece to the space’, says Mark Norman, Design Director at Edelweiss.

Distinctive Shape and Excellent Sound

The piano itself is a take on the well-known Sygnet, an exclusive piano shape from Edelweiss and the worlds smallest baby grand. The twin leg design is a mix of classic and contemporary with a liquid metal bronze finish and brass hardware. Accompanied by a unique semi-circular shape stool. The overall design is completed with the distinguished ‘H’ logo.

On Display for Private Shoppers

The Residence, Shanghai, is the first private shopping space dedicated to Chinese clients in Shanghai. Paving the way for a second Tea Room in Beijing the decadence of the Residence in Shanghai reflects Harrods quality and traditions.

Olfactory Shopping Experience

This branch of Harrods provides an exclusive space open to private clientele offering a relaxed atmosphere to indulge in purchases from a vast catalogue of designer goods. Designed as a traditional British tea toom the setting offers and entirely innovative, contemporary environment.

Music To Enhance the Experience and Showcase the Piano

Ralston’s reputation for sophistication and concert-grade performances has been echoed by worldwide audiences who have seen and heard him perform.
