Oki Sato Reflects On MC Eschers


Oki Sato reflects on MC Escher's influence on designers

The work of Dutch graphic artist MC Escher has influenced all designers, says Oki Sato in this exclusive video produced by Dezeen.

Sato and his design studio Nendo was commissioned by the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia to design an exhibition Escher's work which opened last month.

Sato told Dezeen that the main theme of Escher's work is about the middle ground "between the possible and the impossible".

"That is the true value of design," said Sato.

"I think that gives a lot of influence to all designers including myself."

Entitled Between Two Worlds, the exhibition features 157 prints and drawings by Escher made between 1916 and 1969, and borrowed from the largest collection of Escher's work at the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague.
