The show suite is located at the Adorn Floor of Starhill Gallery, the prestigious destination mall in the heart of Kuala Lumpur city centre. Featuring Steinway Lyngdorf’s range of extraordinary music and home theater systems within uniquely concepted spaces, the show suite serves to mirror the music and living environments of a music lover’s home.
“Within the first days of our global launch at the end of 2007, some of our first clients of the signature Model D Music System were Malaysians. Encouraged by this mature segment of discerning music connoisseurs and the shared business values of Mystique Universal, Steinway Lyngdorf viewed the establishment of our show suite in Kuala Lumpur as an excellent choice,” said Mr Peter Lyngdorf, Founder of Steinway Lyngdorf.
“Steinway Lyngdorf not only comes with an assured brand heritage but brings a totally new experiential level of unparalleled digital sound systems to music lovers here in Malaysia” said Dato’ Francis Sew, President of Mystique Universal, master dealer of the brand in the Malaysian market. “Our mutual choice of Starhill Gallery as the home for Steinway Lyngdorf’s first show suite was made in strong consideration of not only the local but also international clientele who find essentially all the prestigious brands they cherish under one distinctive roof.”
Steinway Lyngdorf’s unique global distribution strategy, since its commercial launch in late 2007, encompasses show suites as well as demo suites co-located in Steinway Lyngdorf’s offices, within the commercial premises of selected dealers globally. It is part of Steinway Lyngdorf’s plan to continually assess the brand and sales viability of establishing dedicated show suites in the important markets of the world.
The design philosophy of the show suite was inspired by the Danish element of “hygge” which embodies the warmth and cozy feeling in a delightfully appointed home. At the same time, the show suite depicts the inspiring environment of an art gallery – offering aesthetic, aural as well as visual pleasure to the senses, akin to the extraordinary, multidimensional experience of the Steinway & Sons series of sound systems.
The show suite houses two distinct spaces – a contemporary living room which features the Model C Music System as well as a home theatre sound system from the architectural Model M Series. It is Steinway Lyngdorf’s belief that the next two-five years will see the trend towards having top-end music and home cinema within a shared family living room as opposed to only the dedicated home theater rooms purpose-built for high-end installations today. Steinway Lyngdorf ushers this trend into its key global markets by offering excellent quality products which are beautifully simple to install and operate for the whole family. The second listening space depicted in the show suite features a dedicated music room which is a must-have for music connoisseurs.
The opening event encompassed a by-invitation cocktail gala for Kuala Lumpur’s music connoisseurs, social and business personalities as well as a private performance by Mr Alexey Yemtsov, a Steinway pianist who is a protégé of Maestro Vladimir Ashkenazy, a leading international Russian conductor.
Steinway Lyngdorf is an innovative company formed between Steinway & Sons, renowned maker of the world’s finest pianos and Peter Lyngdorf, Europe’s pre-eminent audio manufacturer. The collaboration resulted in the creation of the world’s first fully digital, integrated music system – the signature Model D Music System, creating a whole new segment in the world’s audio industry.
All Steinway Lyngdorf systems incorporate an advanced version of Peter Lyngdorf’s revolutionary RoomPerfect™ technology, which enables the system to adapt to the acoustic characteristics of the listening environment in order to ensure unsurpassed audio performance. A full range of bespoke offerings including wood and coloured lacquer finishes as well as gold or chrome metal accents are available to clients.
