This collection is the result of a collaboration between the design skills of Marc Newson, who has been described as the most influential designer of his generation and the engineering and production skills of Robert Wilson and his team at Palm Products.
The objective was to create the world s finest range of unbreakable drinkware.
Marc Newson's sculptured shapes are beautiful, dramatic and unique. Their brilliance comes from their honesty, functionality and timelessness and their understanding of material limitations. They are a pleasure to hold. The curved shapes sit naturally in the hand and they feel balanced with their glass-like weighed sections. They have a non-confrontational human quality. People seem to gravitate to them and enjoy handling them.
Competitors typically use single-shot moulding technology. This collection uses co-moulding as a disruptive technology to enhance visual and functional design.
The collections unique co-moulded coloured base and optional tinted top adds drama, individuality and facilitates customization for the mass market.
Superior functionality for indoor/outdoor use was the starting point for the design. Attention to detail and the use of co-moulding technology has assisted the range fulfil its intended purpose with a completeness that has not been achieved previously.
The shapes are compact and have a low centre of gravity. The co-moulded base is non-slip and also glows-in-the-dark (green only).

The result is a beautiful and unique collection of unbreakable drinkware - a true synergy of form and function.
A Pleasure to use
The range is also highly functional giving added pleasure in use - with many desirable features not found on other ranges.
The glasses will typically be used outdoors and in marine conditions where the surface may be uneven or unstable and where there may be wind. They are often used where glass presents a safety issue.
The shapes are stable with a heavy base.

The tumblers stack with precision onto a fine ledge saving valuable storage space and preventing sticking and damage.
