The Name

“Desypher” has its origins in the Arabic word “sifer”, meaning zero.

The use of zero advanced by Muslim mathematicians had a tremendous impact in clarifying mathematical concepts and furthering scientific discoveries. When first introduced into medieval Europe it was regarded as an abstract, unclear notion – even with a level of suspicion!  And so “sifer” or “cipher” came to mean something coded and obscure and inversely “decipher” an unravelling of the code.

And so we took on the title “Desypher” as a declaration; to make apparent what is misunderstood and to create architectural responses that serve as vehicles of positive contribution.
