Creativity and Constraint: A City Modern Preview

Read Article
Who better to speak to the topic of authentic design than a man with numerous creative collaborations under his belt in addition to his own (vast!) undertakings? Author, designer and ceramicist Jonathan Adler has worked with brands as varied as footwear designer TOMS and e-stationer Paperless Post and next week at City Modern, he’ll sit down with art law specialist Amy Adler (she also happens to be his sister), to discuss the intersection of design authorship and design inspiration. In advance of his City Modern panel at #DellVenue, Adler answered a few of our questions about authentic design and also gave us a sampling of some of his favorite recent additions to his collection.
