Brett Gorman’s brand, Palms Oasis is in the conversation business - creating pieces that speak to you, and start conversations. Brett believes that using sustainable solid timber is the most environmentally friendly manufacturing material in the world.
With a lifelong background in architectural and engineering design, Brett's great joy is designing furniture and seeing pieces come to life. The challenge with Teak root is to imagine the design that is best suited to the size and shape of the root. Also, choosing the color that most suits the piece to make sure it ignites a conversation.
Brett is passionate about timber and making a difference to the planet’s health. No other furniture material permanently traps carbon, so it’s inconceivable to think how an astute consumer would consider a piece of furniture other than one made from sustainable solid timber. Man-made materials such as steel, plastic, aluminium, reconstituted wood, etc., create carbon, the opposite of timber. Where possible please buy sustainable solid wood.
The environment story gets even better with Brett's tree root furniture being created from roots that are waste product salvaged after harvesting and prior to replanting new trees. Normally the roots would be burnt releasing the carbon back into the atmosphere.
Palms Oasis supports a great environmental story however, none of this is possible without the support of customers who believe in similar environmental values. When you become part of the Palms Oasis family your furniture piece comes with a great story that starts the conversation along with regular updates on how your support is enabling environmental projects in Bali and Java, Indonesia.
