Jonathan Adler x Formica

Jonathon Adler x Formica

American designer Jonathan Adler has teamed up with US-based laminate manufacturer Formica to create a new collection of designs for its residential line. Suitable for use on countertops and cabinets, the designs have Adler's signature playful look – a colourful take on the American modern style.

The range features three patterns with a decidedly retro feel. Lacquered Linen echoes the classic texture found on mid-century furniture, while Malachite references 70s patterns based on stone structures. Greek Key is a typical Adler pattern, featuring a bold motif based on angular swirls.

Available in several colours including bold orange, mid-blue and charcoal grey, the designs bring an element of fun and creativity to kitchen design, while laminate enables a more flexible and customisable approach compared to natural materials.

As seen at EuroCucina during Milan Design Week last year, kitchens are increasingly becoming a space for entertaining, leading to designs featuring colour and pattern that can provide a more relaxed environment in sync with the rest of the home.
