“The hospitality sector is one of the fastest growing business segments in the Middle East where both owners and operators are seeking higher levels of distinction to stand out from the crowd,” says Sinha.

“Our approach to design is rooted in our deep understanding of how restaurants and hotels operate, ensuring that we don’t simply design spaces that look good but also work well.”

The company aims to fill a gap in the market for hoteliers seeking more originality in concept development.

“We foresee a very disruptive era in interior design as the visual language of progressive luxury and guest experiences evolves rapidly,” Sinha adds.

“Great design is intuitive and responsive, balancing form and function effortlessly. Every space tells a unique story and we are storytellers who enchant guests by revealing spaces that connect to their aspirations.”

Positioned to offer concept development through its sister company, Circadian offers hoteliers and restaurateurs an integrated approach for design services, from strategic positioning to FF&E and OS&E supplies and overall project management.

Circadian will also launch a collection of hotel furniture, and aims to collaborate with international design institutes to create the hotel room of the future.

This will showcase the evolution and convergence of technology, sustainability and space utilisation, which caters to the needs of future travellers.
