Designed to Perform Beautifully
“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like; design is how it works.” Steve Jobs
Fundamental to each of Palm Products’ designs is the imperative that it perform its intended function, is appropriate in its environment and is durable. Outdoor drinkware, for example, should be stable and unbreakable.
This passion for performance sets Palm apart. It has led to many design innovations and to the use of advanced ergonomic design techniques and state of the art 2-shot moulding processes to achieve highly functional ground-breaking products.
Design to be beautiful
Products should not only perform their intended function, they should be beautiful to look at, to touch and to use. They should engage the emotions and seek that indefinable magic that elevates great art, or great music or great architecture from the noise.
The new Marc Newson Unbreakable Collection has that indefinable magic. The reactions to it are invariably spontaneous and positive – “wow – these are great!”
The Collection won a 2104 Red Dot Award for high design quality. The Red Dot Design Award is an international product design prize awarded by the Design Centrum Nordrheim Westfalen in Essen, Germany.
This award is probably the world’s most sought after design award. It is a recognition the Collection’s design and execution credentials.
The Collection also won a Good Design Award and was selected to be exhibited at Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum’s “Success and Innovation gallery”.
Beautiful design is central to Palm Products’ strategic vision. Good design results in products that are functionally, aesthetically, and commercially more efficient, improving people’s lives and leading to the smallest possible impact on the environment.
Automotive Quality Standards
Fundamental to export success is quality. Suppliers to the Automotive industry must deliver zero faulty parts. The disciplines to achieve this quality level are applied to all our products. Palm’s manufacturing facility in Melbourne is accredited to automotive quality standard ISO TS16949, manufacturing and design standard ISO 9001 and environment standard ISO 14001.
Palm has been making instrument cluster lenses for Toyota for many years. Best practice skills learnt on how to achieve ripple free, mirror-polished lenses have been further refined and applied to the production of exceptional quality consumer products.
All products are made in Melbourne, Australia. Out-sourcing production to Asia would compromise the close relation between design, engineering and production necessary to produce these high-end products with the required quality and utility levels.

At all stages of the design and production process, consideration is given to minimizing the company’s impact on the environment. (see Environment and Quality More >)
The plant is certified to Environment standard ISO14001.
All Palm branded products are made from unbreakable materials and have robust designs that will enable them to outlast most competitor’s products many times over – thereby reducing their impact on the environment.
Asian-Competitive Delivered Cost
Fundamental to export success is cost competitiveness. A fully automated factory and lean distribution channels deliver Asian cost competitive products to Asian, European, Middle-Eastern and North American markets.
Safety – BPA-free and Melamine-free
Palm Products is a BPA-free company
BPA-free Tritan has replaced BPA-containing polycarbonate
Polycarbonate is banned in France and has been listed as a hazardous chemical under proposition 65 in California.
Tritan is a new miracle material produced only by Eastman in the USA. It is the best material for drinkware.
Compared to polycarbonate, it is clearer, more scratch and stain resistant, more dishwasher resistant and just as unbreakable
All materials are certified as passing the relevant European Commission and the US Food and Drug Administration food contact regulations.
Our new Plate and Bowl collection is made from a new Dupont material called Sorona. This high density material offers similar scratch resistance to Melamine and has the advantages that it is guaranteed unbreakable and dishwasher safe and is microwave safe. Melamine has some safety concerns whereas Sorona has no safety concerns and has the backing of Dupont. And finally, it is made in Kentucky USA and contains 35% renewable material derived from corn waste.
