Kawai was founded by Koichi Kawai who was born in Japan in 1886. Kawai was the son of a wagon maker, known for his mechanical ingenuity and invention from a young age. He began focusing on pianos early in life and was awarded many patents. Kawai has a reputation for using technology to improve the piano, utilising composite components, where useful, to improve stability and action and extend the life of their pianos which are doubtlessly world-class, whether in the acoustic, baby grand or concert grand piano ranges.
