Plant Seven, High Point’s new center for design, culture and innovation, celebrated its soft launch during High Point Market. Guests were invited to walk the multi-exhibitor fair Mill Collective; view a contemporary gallery exhibition titled “This Is Not a Chair,” curated by Brooklyn-based Standard Issue Design; visit The Design Shop for gifts, decor and accessories made in the South and curated by the editors of Dezeen; browse a collection of posters and books about art, architecture, photography and design at the Draw Down Bookshop; discover innovative materials at the newly opened Material ConneXion resource library; and preview the future Plant Seven CoWork space with a lounge furnished by Arper and BuzziSpace. 

“Plant Seven represents a new approach for High Point,” says the center’s project developer and Plant Seven CEO Tim Branscome. “We’re building a creative hub unlike anything the city has ever seen before. It will allow for talent to emerge from the ground up, year-round. We wanted to introduce the concept with fresh and unexpected programming, designed speak to the next generation of creatives with a blend of contemporary art and design that celebrates independent makers and resonates on a global scale.”
