Hospitality Design - December 2009 - 50

designer profile jonathan adler By Jana Schiowitz Parker Palm Springs shot by Nikolas Koenig happy potter When you walk inside Jonathan Adler’s New York studio, you are immersed into a world of eccentricity, joy, and color and there’s no looking away. The designer, known for what he calls a “happy chic” style and for numerous products and projects spread throughout the world, believes that design should be uplifting. “I’m very serious about the curve of the teapot handle or the hand of the pillow, but I don’t think design should be overly serious,” he says. The potter, originally from New Jersey, spent summers at camp working with clay. “It seems really weird and silly to find one’s calling at 12 years old, but that’s what happened,” he says. After going to Brown University and honing his craft at RISD, he wasn’t sure about making a living as a potter so he moved to New York to work in the movie business as an assistant to producers and talent agents. After being fired (Adler spent too much time on the phone and not enough time working), he got himself a studio to pass the time. “I really have one skill and that is really to make a pot. Not a bad one to have.” In 1994, his first order, a line of colorful, striped pots, came through from Barneys. Four years later, orders for his pottery were pouring in. Needing help to expand his collections, he got in touch with Aid to Artisans and found a workshop in Peru to collaborate with. “That enabled me to fulfill all of my dreams and get out and make a broader range of pots, pillows, and rugs because I fell in love with Caribbean textiles,” Adler says. And from there, the Jonathan Adler name kept growing—he opened his first retail store in New York’s Soho in 1998 (now he has 11 stores with his newest in Boston); designed the Parker Palm Springs hotel and Barbie Suite at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas; branched out into bathroom accessories and stationery; and judged the Bravo television series Top Design where he coined the signature signoff “see you later decorator.” But to Adler, hospitality is a unique, creative outlet: “I think that the nice thing is that you get to create a sense of fantasy, something more dramatic.” hospitalitydesign www.hdmag.com
