Founded by Zosia Berki­eta-Lewis and Michael Lewis of Leeds based graphic de­sign stu­dio The Ar­chi­pel­ago, The Plant Room was orig­i­nally con­ceived in June 2015 as a col­lab­o­ra­tive ex­hi­bi­tion project pro­mot­ing well­be­ing and cre­ativ­ity in homes and work­ing en­vi­ron­ments.

"We make spa­ces and de­velop projects with peo­ple and plants in mind, work­ing with gallery own­ers, cu­ra­tors, and in­de­pen­dent busi­nesses to de­sign ex­hi­bi­tions and spa­ces. Clients so far have in­cluded Har­vey Ni­chols, Leeds Li­braries & The British Li­brary, North­ern Monk Brew Co, and more.

"Work­ing col­lab­o­ra­tively is at the heart of what we do. And by seek­ing out like-minded creatives like tex­tile de­signer Laura Slater, who we're work­ing with on LAND, an in­stal­la­tion piece for Lon­don De­sign Fes­ti­val 2018, we pro­mote the power of na­ture and land­scape on cre­ativ­ity and well-be­ing.

"In­sta­gram has proved the best way to share The Plant Room story so far."
