EKLA was launched in November 2015 by Elsa Lemarignier, a gallery owner based in Paris and Shenaz Currimjee, a Mauritian designer and creative director.

After years of working in the worlds of design, fashion, branding and communication, the desire to bridge their experiences and esthetics inspired the setting-up of this exciting new venture in Mauritius.

The company offers a discerning selection of local and international designers and editors in the fields of furniture, lighting and product design, bridging the indoors and outdoors. Since its inception in November 2015, numerous exhibitions have been hosted at the St. Antoine Ex-Distillery, at Imaaya Gallery as well as at Dock 13, EKLA’s second new exciting showroom space in Fanfaron Quays, Port Louis.

Moving between Concept Store, Gallery and Showroom, EKLA has naturally asserted itself as a platform with a unique exciting offer, presenting a range of dynamic lifestyle design solutions to individuals and professionals alike.
