WHO IS PALOMA POWERS?

static1.squarespace-2.jpg

Paloma Powers and her international associates in New York, Los Angeles, and Shanghai are on a mission to reclaim the quality, endurance, and subversiveness that has been sacrificed to cultural ubiquity.  Her team is dedicated to the highest standards of aesthetics with artists at the helm of designing solutions for the home, the office, the retail space, the public space, the screen, and every surface of contemporary life.  

Paloma Powers (née Paloma Li Cruz) is a Brazilian born polymath who has lived in nine different countries with over 25 years of experience as a founding member of an online auction house, a curator of exhibitions across four continents, a producer of films and programming across art, film, and design, and a perennial style icon.  

PALOMA'S TEAM

Andrea Hill is a New York and Amsterdam based entrepreneur and creative director.  In 2018, she launched TORTUGA Living, a direct-to-consumer furniture brand focused on modular pieces created by designers. Her career focus is bringing the ideas of artists and designers to a broad public.  Prior to leading her own companies, Andrea was on the founding team of Paddle8, an online auction house for contemporary art.

Samantha Culp is a writer, producer and strategist based in Los Angeles after nine years in China where she worked at the intersection of art, media, and youth culture. Her writing has appeared in Artforum, the New York Times T Magazine, and the Wall Street Journal. She serves on the board of the China Residencies Network and is currently working with Netflix producing an upcoming documentary series. 

Andrea and Samantha also work together in partnership with Robin Peckham on CultureTM , a publication covering how brands are shaping creative culture.

PALOMA'S OFFICE

Paloma Powers commissioned artist and designer Shawn Maximo to realize her dream office.  The space is conceived as an oval, a vagina, an opening into another dimension where all of her passions are engaged. Maximo considered her attraction to water and appreciation of all things fluid when creating her wall-size aquarium filled with tardigrades, microscopic animals that have survived every major earth trauma, yet maintain a blissful co-existence with the planet.  Other custom materials and details include tortoise shell (the finish for her treadmill desk), humanely harvested leoporah skin (her cheetah-leopard hybrid rug), ancient turquoise (sacred stones in her aquarium), crisp rose wine (Paloma's personal vintage), chrome-plated ATM (dispensing 7 currencies including Bitcoin), and art (a marble figure by Jacques Louis David on her desk).
