Inspired by the work of M.C. Escher and the word "lief" which in Dutch means beloved, this table uses a single leaf to create a fractal tessellation that expands and contracts through the addition or removal of a third center piece.

In May 2022, after years of wanting to create Fractal Furniture that brought peace of mind through visual meditation in an Art form, Oscar had found a design that met its purpose. To serve as a permanent reminder of the love shared by Oscar for M.C. Escher’s tessellations, his favorite artist and who’s home is found in the Denneweg, near his childhood homes in Den Haag, The Netherlands.
He choose a flower, inspired by the word “lief” which in Dutch means beloved, to form a fractal tessellation. The table art was created through a series of laser cut MDF leaves, that created a pattern by cutting through tape using an exacto knife, mirroring Escher is Woodcut artistic style. The tape was painted over and removed revealing a tessellation that expands and contracts by removing or adding a third centerpiece that carries a prolonging pattern. Finally, the artwork was covered in a protective polyurethane layer.
The process took 4 months, ending on October 4th 2022.
