MC@Play with Jonathan Adler Video
The designer shows off his newest designs and shares his favorite soiree splurges and best backyard party games.
Hi, this is Kate Schweitzer with marieclaire.com. And, we're here in Jonathan Adler's amazing New York City Studio. Thanks for having us.
Thank you for coming.
So, I'm here and we're talking all about Summer Entertaining.
Totally. We're here talking about Summer Entertaining. It's specifically about this gorgeous collaboration I did with Diet Pepsi--
as evidenced by this nifty straw that I have in my palm.
It's very nice.
I assume that you designed it [unknown].
I did. Yeah. It's this groovy straw that--
that's for Diet Pepsi cans.
And they're available at Target, right?
Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
It's so cool.
And they're like-- they're just for Diet Pepsi.
Perfect for the 4th of July.
I actually have a lot of groovy colorful games that are over on the other side of the table. And they're cute, right?
Are you-- what's your favorite game?
That's a good one.
I'm a Ping-pong person. I make this groovy Ping-pong panel cover so-- for Ping-pong.
It's very festive.
So, I splurge on food.
I like, you know, whatever the number of people that's coming--
I always get like twice as many things that I need.
How did you incorporate your design aesthetic into something so small?
Well, it was actually really fun. I think that I wanted to just sort of work with the spirit of the Pepsi logo--
which we see right there on the Diet Pepsi logo which kind of has that swoopy red, white and blue thing. And so, I sort of took that pattern and interpreted it and I think it came out really cute.
Thanks so much for your tips.
And you can get these adorable straws at Target, right?
And of course, anything John-- with Jonathan Adler you can get-- Jonathan Adler.
