A design exhibition that unravels the intricate relationship between language and its profound influence on cultural and social dimensions through objects and space.

Using the three Greek concepts relating to words - 'Logos,' the uttered word; 'Graphe,' the written or codified word; and 'Rhema,' the revelatory word, the designers and artists investigate these connections through the lens of various creative approaches, such as poetry, sculpture, furniture design, lighting, object creation, and rug design.

These concepts form the thematic foundation to provide distinct sections within the exhibition. Using Bliss Symbols, to think, to speak and to write as plinths and structures, this ideographic writing system contributes to the overarching dialogue between the tangible and intangible, spoken and silent, abstract and concrete.
