Opening of Design Exhibition Oki Sato

On May 20, the opening of “nendo invisible outlines”, an exhibition featuring the works of designer Mr. Oki Sato and his team “nendo”, was held at the Design Museum of Le Grand Hornu. The design exhibition is the largest of its kind in Europe and was attended by Ambassador Hayashi, Ms. Kono and Ms. Kurihara. In his welcoming address, Ambassador Hayashi praised how nendo’s many contemporary and original works form a splendid harmony with the historical buildings at the site, which have been inscribed as Unesco World Heritage since 2012, and how the whole evokes a sense of how culture flows from the past to the present and into the future.

“Nendo invisible outlines” is held until October 1.
