The passage of time has marked many changes in the way we live, work and play, even in the way we see spatial design.
The need of the hour is to create transformative areas that are synchronised with individual desires and preferences; to create ‘destinations’ rather than spaces, and this is exactly what Circadian does, every day.
A sister company to Insignia Worldwide, who have been pioneers in creating enriching brand experiences for the luxury, travel and hospitality sector, Circadian is a natural progression of the brand story.
We design bespoke spatial environments and interior concepts for commercial establishments, dining venues as well as office environments.
The term circadian comes from blending the Latin words 'circa', meaning ‘around’/ ‘approximately’, and ‘diem’, meaning ‘day’.
The term is used to describe any biological process that displays an endogenous, entrainable oscillation of about 24 hours. These rhythms are driven by a circadian clock, and these rhythms have been widely observed in living organisms.
Although circadian rhythms are endogenous (built-in and/or self-sustained), they are adjusted (entrained) to the local environment by external cues, the most common and important of which is daylight.
We love the visual narration of great design and we celebrate the invisible enchantment that captivates the senses once you are immersed in a place.
We are passionate about creating transformative interior spaces that are designed to seamlessly synchronise with effortless living, using design principles that are deeply embedded in the natural rhythm of life.
We believe good design is about helping clients meet their needs and objectives. It is also about the way people feel when they experience it, a sense of meaning, connection and belonging.
We link vision to reality and build the bridge between creative ideas and delivery of products and services.
Circadian is dynamic and thrives on hard work, which results in the creation of beautiful things.
We do not rely purely on style, neither do our designers simply create; we devise solutions that make sense without diluting impact.
By combining strategy, branding, design and activation expertise, we create sustainable solutions that inspire and guide behaviours and actions.
At Circadian, we set the stage for stories to come alive. Our design philosophy is inspired by the fundamental principles of transformation.
We believe that any distinct space has characteristics that come alive and pulsate to the needs and desires of human aspirations, at all times.
From a universal perspective, form must follow function, but at Circadian we place people at the heart of any place and that singularity creates a very unique design ideology.
Our framework for design development is based on articulation of the enduring essence of a place.
This value distillation process is based on clear understanding of the utilitarian needs of what the space needs to service and this is distilled through clear insights that address, blend and fuse both emotional engagement and functional capabilities.
