Mill Collective is an exhibition of design and craft located inside Plant Seven, a new center for culture and innovation in Downtown High Point.

Founded in Spring 2017 to foster new talent at High Point Market, Mill Collective has evolved within what is now a large-scale redevelopment project called Plant Seven.

A multiphase project, Plant Seven will soft launch to Fall Market attendees with the opening of a year-round Material ConneXion library, a special exhibit called "This is Not a Chair," a coworking space designed by leading hospitality suppliers and photo studios.
