Circula

Circula is an experimental solution designed to reduce social isolation and strengthen societal bonds, which in the following months can effectively support recovering from the social distancing. The concept based on principles revolving around ECO Solidarity initiative, fostering ideas of sustainability and circular economy, advocates for an ecological and more human centered approach in design. Circula provides a symbolic, functional, space for dialogue to encourage and facilitate direct social interactions. Once implemented, it supports public space and belongs to the community.

Circula’s main aim is to encourage dialogue and relationships - what better form could it take than a circle? A perfect geometric figure, with neither beginning nor end. A universal symbol of balance and harmony that naturally brings people together. The circle cancels out all hierarchies and divisions. Sitting in a circle allows us to look everyone in the eye, to better express ourselves and get to know each other. It makes us more open to others and supports inclusivity. It encourages sharing and stimulates the creative flow. Circula is a solution created to impact humanity directly through tools of design. The intention of the project is to develop in various, even unpredictable directions to reach the largest possible group of people in order to support the need for togetherness and cooperation.

ECO Solidarity
ECO Solidarity developed as a result of a collaboration between designer
Tomek Rygalik and Polish Cultural Institute NY. It is a multidisciplinary project that addresses the urgency for a more human-centered art, design, architecture and their social implications in public spaces, centered around the public furniture and Circula solution. ECO Solidarity brings various disciplines and industries from around the world into round-table discussions, in a mission to offer strategies that reintegrate displaced social bonds, and foster community discourse around these issues through the medium of innovative contemporary design and art.
