Interior, Design, Arabic, Calligraphy


This paper explores the integration of Arabic language with interior design, focusing on the case study of the Museum of the Future in Dubai. By analyzing the successful blending of these two distinct domains, the study aims to uncover the potential synergies and implications for cultural representation and immersive experiences in architectural spaces. The research adopts a qualitative approach, combining observations, and a thorough literature review. The findings reveal a seamless integration of Arabic language and interior design within the museum, with strategic placement of signage, calligraphy, and quotations. The paper discusses the cultural significance and symbolism associated with the incorporation of Arabic language, highlighting its role in fostering a sense of connection and belonging. Furthermore, it explores the enhanced user experiences resulting from this integration. The study contributes to a deeper understanding of the fusion of language and interior design, providing valuable insights for practitioners and opening avenues for future research in this emerging field.
