Smith & Fong Debuts PalmTheory Wall Panels

Available in eight patterns inspired by abstract geometry.




(PRESS RELEASE) SAN FRANCISCO – Smith & Fong has introduced PalmTheory, a range of configurable palm panels for commercial, high-end residential, retail and hospitality interiors, according to company founder and CEO Dan Smith.

PalmTheory panels are available in eight configurable grain patterns that explore the use of abstract geometry, both organic and refined. As different as each pattern is, all are grounded within the discipline of the isosceles triangle.

A selection of preset designs is provided for designers as a departure point for further creativity and exploration; each can be further manipulated to create new and different patterns.

The PalmTheory panels are constructed of individually cut isosceles triangles, encompassing four different grain directions. They are assembled into 4’x8’ dimension panels that are designed for easy installation. Panels and patterns can be assembled to fit any size surface from 4’x8’ up to very large installations.

Durapalm panels come standard with a Class C fire-rating and can be upgraded to Class B, if specifications require. Additionally, these panels meet or surpass ULEF (ultra-low emitting formaldehyde) standards under CARB ll. Durapalm panels can contribute to USGBC’s LEED credits for low-emitting materials.




Embracing Whole-Brained Thinking in the Design Journey

Strategy needs creative, and creative needs strategy—yep, having both is really the only way of unifying all disciplines with a common vernacular with an eye toward building a strong creative vision that is foundational to the processes. Hear from Bevan Bloemendaal, former VP, Global Environments & Creative Services at Timberland, how to connect the dots between disciplines, claiming and creating a clear differentiation for the brand and ensuring that any asset (experience, product, ad, store, office, home, video, game) is created with intention.
