“Founded in Chicago in 1950, GOOD DESIGN™ remains the oldest, prestigious, and most recognized program for design excellence worldwide.
The GOOD DESIGN™ Logo is the world’s most recognized public certification for consumer design excellence and is used by the world’s foremost corporations, manufacturers, and designers to identify their product’s design merit.
For eight decades since its inception, the Chicago Athenaeum continues the organisation of the program to create an awareness about contemporary design and to honor both products and industry leaders in design and manufacturing that have chartered new directions for innovation and pushed the envelope for competitive products in the world marketplace.”
THE CHICAGO ATHENAEUM
The significance of winning this award
It is an independent confirmation of the design values and innovation of the Palm Caffe Cup.
It is confirmation of Palm Products’ ability to create award winning products using the values of Beauty, Functionality and Sustainability.
It follows the winning of a Red Dot in 2014 for the Marc Newson Collection and a Red Dot for the Palm Sorona Collection in 2016.
A common thread is that their innovation is not just based on design using existing technology, but upon design using novel engineering, materials and production techniques. In combination these have allowed the envelop of beauty, functionality and sustainability to be pushed.
