    Our Design Philosophy & Values

  • “Eklego” is the Greek origin of the word "I choose", meaning to draw upon various styles, sources or cultures. We use this principle to inform our style and guide our creative approach. Our ethos is that the best results always come from considering functionality in the light of original design. Whether we’re creating spaces or products, the fusion of different ideas from different backgrounds is what makes our designs unique by nature and enjoyable by experience. That is the trademark of Eklego.
