Discover the new concept of a collaborative showroom in Mauritius


A new address in Mont Choisy Le Mall is ready to welcome its guests since the 28th of April… Get ready to immerse yourself in the unique universe of The Hive marketplace! This immersive and collaborative space will delight professionals in the home and office sector, as well as artists and designers! 


With its brilliant and innovative concept, this showroom is one of a kind. It aims to become both a place of work and a privileged showcase for its partners. Through its layout, its architecture and the experience offered, this new address has been imagined as an exceptional place, highlighting both the products and the spaces. Christopher Rogers, Managing Director of THE HIVE marketplace, points out:
“The Hive marketplace is a collaborative showroom. The first and only one to offer such a concept in Mauritius. A showroom because it will highlight brands, trends, and talents. We are happy and proud to have with us 35 small and medium-sized companies operating in this sector here in Mauritius. Collaborative because it offers all the necessary infrastructure and facilities to enable our specialists, professionals and artists to meet their clients on site, but also to interact and collaborate. Finally, we are planning a sales area where visitors will have the opportunity to find the final touch of their designs. Everything is done to maximise their visibility and offer all customers a new, rewarding and stimulating experience!” 


Six specific areas representing a bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen, and a meeting room, have been created. The space includes exhibition areas, a 35 m2 bringing together a set of samples, catalogues, portfolios and business cards from all of the exclusive collaborators. There is also a directly connected meeting room: a dream office where working, exchanging, collaborating and carrying out projects is a real pleasure! 


“The concept proposed by The Hive Marketplace is a godsend for specialists in home and office equipment and furnishings, but also for all the talents who are just waiting to be showcased. Collaboration being an aspect that is dear to us at The Hive, we will do everything we can to bring to life and animate this new community of talented and passionate designers and creatives”, highlights Cyril Quintyn, Partner and Director of THE HIVE.


Jugaad, an architecture and placemaking agency specialising in destination design, was chosen by The Hive marketplace as a strategic collaborator to imagine and design this exceptional project. Their main aim is to break the codes of retail, promote local skills and put collaboration at the heart of the reflection. A successful endeavour, since the new exhibition space has already won over its founding members and exclusive visitors.
