Born of Australia - Beautiful, Functional and Tough
Innovation is at our core
We aim to achieve exceptional performance in more sustainable way.
Our Exceptional Performance commences with a deep understanding of how our products are to be used. From this so we build in features that we know will be appreciated in use, such as a stacking ledge and our Non-slip bases.
Our Exceptional Performance is based on a deep understanding of the manufacturing process which enables us to push the boundaries of what is possible.

REMANUFACTURING - Closing the Circular Economy Loop – a win for consumers and the earth
Return your Palm Outdoor products to us at their end-of-life , and we will REMANUFACTURE into new products.
This is a major new initiative
Now there is no need for our products to end up as landfill.
How does it work?
Palm will take back our products at their end-of-life, wash, sort, re-grind and then remanufacture into new products, conserving raw materials and eliminating waste.

Palm Outdoor's path to sustainability is to:
REDUCE - Design products that are timeless and functional – so they are not
discarded because they are out-of-fashion or do not fulfil their function.
REUSE - Make products that will last forever. We use long-life materials, such as Tritan, which resists dishwashing chemicals and are unbreakable. We back this up with our Forever Unbreakable Guarantee. Our product will out-last ceramic, melamine, and glass, all of which can break.
Minimize the use of energy in our production.
RECYCLE - All our products can be recycled.
REMANUFACTURE - Return your Palm Outdoor Products to us at their end-of-life, and we will REMANUFACTURE into new products.

Beautiful well-designed award-winning products
Winner of Reddot awards for our Marc Newson Drinkware in 2014, and for our Non-slip Plates and Bowl in 2016.
The Reddot Design Award, from Essen, Germany, is probably the most prestigious and most difficult design award to win.
The Palm Caffe Cup won a Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design – the oldest and most prestigious design award in the US
Owner, Robert Wilson has had a lifelong interest in designing products for people - first sparked whilst studying a subject called "Human Engineering" at the University of Melbourne.
He is also an outdoor enthusiast which brings context to our products.
This focus on designing products for people and usage situations led to innovations like our signature non-slip base. and the stacking shelf on our tumblers to avoid sticking and damage.
Stability outdoors is important so our drinkware has wide and weighted bases
Being unbreakable is important if you are camping or boating and for safety.
Sizes and shapes are important for today's casual & outdoor lifestyles - so our drinkware is not too large and our plates have raised edges to restrain food.
When the technology is not avaiable we are prepared to innovate. The vision for the Caffe Cup was to replicate the coffee experience at a caffe – to see, to smell, to sip, to taste.
This led to 2 US Patents, one for the butterfly lid which allows a natural sipping action and the other for the windows to enable the level of coffee to be seen,.
Forever Unbreakable Guaranteed
We stand behind our products.
If any of our products carrying this guarantee are broken in normal use, we will replace it or issue a refund.
Our products have been designed and manufactured to be reusable forever
They are dishwasher safe and microwave safe
They will outlast glass, ceramic and melamine - as these can break.
Their virtually unlimited life makes them superb value and more environmentally sustainable.
Buy less, buy better, reduce waste
Reduce, Reuse and Recycle
If required, all our products are Recyclable.
Melamine and ceramic tableware are not recyclable as they cannot be remelted.
Glass can break during sorting which contaminates waste and prevents recycling.
Less Energy to Manufacture
Less energy is required to make our products than ceramic or glass or melamine.
Palm Outdoor’s facility is certified to Environment Standard ISO14001. All inputs and outputs are measured with programs inplace to manage and reduce them.
One of the pleasures of business is establishing personal relationships and giving service

US Patents Granted on Palm Caffe Cup
Patent on Butterfly Lid
Patent No.: US D843,167 S
The butterfly lid was developed to allow the free-flow of coffee and aroma - preserving the experience of an open cup. The usual sliders, buttons, flip flaps and spouts all constrict the flow and aroma and hot coffee is poured straight into your mouth. The butterfly lid allows the flow to be controlled by your lips, as you would when drinking from a cup.
Patent on Triple-Walled Cup with windows
Patent No.: US 10r30lrl0I B2 Date 28/05/2019
The triple-wall cup was developed to allow a window to be incorporated and to reduce the height of the cup by 30% compared to a double-wall cup. The advantages are that the coffee can be seen and the level judged, and the shorter height improves stability and allows fitment under an espresso or Nespresso machine.
Marc Newson for the 36th America’s Cup - The Prada Cup & Logo
For its 36th edition the America’s Cup, the oldest trophy in international sport, welcomed presenting sponsor Prada, which created the latest version of the trophy Prada Cup for this special occasion. The stunning Prada Cup silver trophy was created by Marc and handcrafted to his specification by Florentine silversmiths. It is housed in a luxurious leather trunk designed and handcrafted by Prada.”
“This is one of the most dynamic events in the world, and my initial thoughts about the trophy were to create an object that wasn’t static, which had a sense of movement, which reflected the technology. They’re no longer boats really - they are kind of flying objects…I thought wow, wouldn’t it be interesting to think of a trophy that flies in the same way that these vessels do.”
