Jonathan Adler, Happy Chic & Mid-Century Modern Designs

Jonathan Adler is a world renowned potter, designer and author, known for his Happy Chic Design collection and his take on Mid-century Modern design. Adler was born in 1966 in Bridgeton, New Jersey, his love of ceramics and pottery first came to light during a summer camp in the late 70’s, it was after this holiday that Adler began experimenting with clay and the use of a wheel and kiln. Most of the early 80’s were spent perfecting his craft with one of his first designs being inspired by Chanel’s quilted collections.

After a few years working in the movie industry in New York Adler quit his job and returned to his first love. Soon enough orders were pouring in from the likes of Barneys New York and other department stores. By the mid-nineties Adler’s feet were firmly through the ‘design’ door and by 1998 he’d opened his first store in Soho. Adler’s main inspiration came from mid-century modern designs with a touch of pop art.

Jonathan Adler – Menagerie

A popular design of Alders is his Menagerie line, a happy chic collection of ceramic animal ornaments, book ends and lamp bases featuring owls, foxes, dogs, elephants and many more. All his prototypes are firstly produced at his Soho studio and then shipped to Peru where they are mass produced by Peruvian Artisans.
