As the pioneer of unique architectural glass, Glass Fusion was founded in India in 1986 by Kayur Patel.
For over three decades, Glass Fusion has been a trusted name in the field of luxury design and has brought to life the perceptive visions of discerning luxury aficionados, using glass, in urban & interior spaces, furniture design and public art.
In early 2015, Glass Fusion rechristened its brand of luxury architectural glass art to Studio Cast Glass - SCG with the endeavor to create newer design experiences, more successful collaborations and to widen the brand’s international footprint.
Pillared on the philosophy of “commitment to excellence” and “unparalleled attention to detail”, Creative Director, Mr. Patel comprehends the ubiquitous nature of the space and works intimately on the details advocating the importance of each work reflecting each individual or environment.
Focused on creating absolutely bespoke works of luxury, armed with value engineering, exquisite craftsmanship and imagination, every SCG idea comes to life when often, glass is melted at 1500 °C in specially designed kilns.
SCG works occur in a myriad palette of materials, diverse and often non-congenial with the other, whether stubborn as steel, ductile as aluminum, soft as wood or fragile and difficult as glass.
At SCG, no two designs are repeated, although similarities lie in the mere inspiration of the entangled stories of the universe.
Armed with a plethora of experience over the years, we have hitherto not only become a name to reckon with in the field of luxury architectural glass but have also made the successful transition into becoming a multi discipline design studio.
Working in tandem with architecture firms, interior designers, consultants and individual creative geniuses alike who share in the value of communicating self-expression and identity in lifestyle and design, SCG works have found its way in some of the most prestigious Hotels, Public Spaces, Residences & Corporate Offices in India and overseas.
RIZO is the flagship brand of SCG and was launched at Downtown Design Dubai in 2017.
