The birth of Elami was unintentional.
We never set out to start a business. We simply started collaborating while producing non-profit events for our mutual love of “ideas worth spreading.”
If you have ever attended one of our events, you know we enjoy making things happen, paying attention to details, watching new relationships develop, and fostering creativity. We met in Bali, began working together, and turned our hobby into a job.
While setting up our business legally in Indonesia, we turned a garage into our creative space (pretty much like Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak but with girl touches), and have slowly grown our team. Elami, which is an anagram of our names (Daniela and Mila), is now Elami and Co.; making us very lucky to work with some of the most talented people in Indonesia.
Our design philosophy
Our passion lies in elevating ordinary events to extraordinary experiences.
Using all five senses, we design to build community and creative collaboration.
We design for Indonesia and to showcase its amazing craftsmanship to the world.
We design to be environmentally-conscious.
And above all, we design to inspire and connect people. There is something magical about that.
If you love a good chat and good coffee, let's meet and talk about bringing your ideas to life.
