PLANT is an interdisciplinary design studio founded by Holly McWhorter and Bjarke Ballisager, a husband-and-wife team based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Holly and Bjarke design all PLANT products either together or independently. They share a passion for green design practices, Scandinavian modern lines and a good sense of humor.
Holly is a native of Philadelphia but has been a die-hard New Yorker since 1993. Her additional professional background includes interior architecture and freelance writing, among other things. Bjarke, a native of Copenhagen, Denmark, is also a licensed architect. He comes to product design by way of a longtime passion for it.
PLANT’s bodywashes are made in New York State by teams of adults with physical, medical, mental and psychiatric handicaps, at nonprofit workshops whose mission is to give them employment opportunities and training.
The Twisted Lily boutique located at 360 Atlantic Ave was designed by PLANT! A custom interior, furniture and light fixtures, make the boutique a comfortable and welcoming destination for learning about the intriguing world of scent.
