Highlighting one of their recent projects for an upscale restaurant in Mumbai, India Studio Cast Glass built a 100 feet long monolithic island bar handcrafted in natural coal- the only installation of its kind in the world. Weighing in at 5 metric tons the inspiration for this mammoth installation came from a small experiment at the studio which portrayed astounding results at a micro level of the behavioral pattern of coal as a material while sintering under conditions of extreme pressure and heat. This ensued in creating prototypes of the bar in a multitude of different forms pushing towards the complexity of the eventual form and flow of it. An impressive feat of engineering as well as design the complex installation required a great amount of coordination with highly skilled artisans coupled with deep understanding of value engineering and aesthetics of the brand’s Founder and Creative Director, Kayur Patel.
