Founded in 2005, Palette Industries has set out to substantiate a multidisciplinary approach to design. Palette brings together a group of three talented individuals, Nathan Tremblay, Ian Campana and Samuel Ho to create a diverse perspective on our ever changing surroundings. Palette’s unique blending of artistic ingenuity, craftsmanship and engineering is a testament to their artistic philosophy and its ultimate manifestation. Based on the principles of emancipating theories, chronicles and stories from substance rich objects, these concepts breathe life into their designs beyond just form and function. Palette strives to construct unique situations that explore the intrinsic nature of our own embedded narratives, personally and communally, creating a continuously evolving dialogue between the object, the individual and the environment.
