Kawai was founded by Koichi Kawai who was born in 1886. Kawai was was the son of a wagon maker and he was 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 as well as extend the life of their pianos which are doubtlessly world-class, whether in the acoustic, baby grand or concert grand piano ranges.
