Classic rhombille tiling pattern has always fascinated us because it’s so simple on the surface, but the more you look at it, the deeper it goes. At first glance it’s just a 2-dimensional pattern, which pops into 3rd dimension after few seconds, but that’s just the way our brain is wired up.
The first experiment was this simple post-card sized picture – refrigerator magnet. Just like real tiling, the approach was to glue 19 pre-finished pieces on the surface to make a pattern.
Bangle was a totally different story. We forgot about the refrigerator magnet, but while brainstorming for bangle designs, it came up and it was a challenge we couldn’t resist. The previous approach would not work for a bangle. Instead, we made the base from one color and backfilled other two in as seen in workshop picture.
