The first Tesserae was designed with the concept of childhood playground popular in Singapore during the 1990s. Playgrounds were found in the middle of every estate and it always feature big castle-like a structure depicting interesting creatures or great big vehicles. Most of our childhood were spent running around these structure as thought we were on some fantasy adventure. The design of the print were based on the bright colour mosaic tiles that covered these structures.
Tesserae 2.0 uses the same design pattern and add on the second chapter of coming of age. The enlistment into the Singapore military. Everyone man must served 2 years of conscript service to the nation. The shades of greenish teal, blue and white represent the various colors of the uniform soldiers wear. We also used the colours and coats the entire mosaic like a new layer of experience overlapping the previous, signifying the next stage of life in Singapore.
