ROSENTHAL CERAMICS IN SLEEK MAG 

For over a century, Rosenthal has been the definitive name associated with the well-laid table and the tasteful home.  For a reimagining of their brand, Rosenthal sought out Paloma Powers who proposed an updated wedding registry for five singular bride-to-be personas (the witchy gothic CEO in your life, the plant whispering shaman, the organist Krautrock-lover, the adrenaline addict embarking on her third marriage, and the lesbian gastronome who also happens to be your #girlcrush.) 


 

CREATOR AND PRODUCER

FLORA POWERS BERLIN

During the opening days of the Berlin Biennial, Flora Powers presented a portable exhibition of floral arrangements created by artists who share an interest in the domestic environment, design, and questions of taste and consumption. These limited-edition artist bouquets were ordered online and hand-delivered locally within Berlin by our network of couriers.  The delivery process was both exhibition platform and performance, mediated by an online portal and the matrix of e-commerce, but blossoming into the physical world with tangible immediacy.

Ren Hang for #guccigram "...Why are these bare-chested men balancing a cat between them as they kiss? Why does this woman have her hair braided into a grassy field?  We don't know, but the sumptuous textures and baroque contrasts suggest a secret logic, an alien form of hedonism..."

Sue de Beer for #24hourace "...In her hands, the #GucciAce is a talisman worn by both the Cheshire cat and Alice herself.  Inside a teenage bedroom, saturated lighting and off-kilter camera angles conjure the glamorous horror of Dario Argento while the basketballer cat signals the subterranean world oDavid Lynch. We enter de Beer's vision through a double portal, a split-screen frame that references the two-channel video format favored by the artist.  Welcome to Wonderland where the beautiful and uncanny coexist."
