With its expertise in hot bending, the Italian company Sunglass Industry s.r.l., founded in 1984, is regarded as one of the market leaders for curved architectural glass. Its glass has been used in the construction of outstanding, unique, modern architecture such as the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg and the building of the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris.

The premium manufacturer sedak is the world market leader for large-format glass up to 3.51 x 20 metres and a specialist for so-called "cold bending”.
