Artist and architects have used squares, triangles, rectangles, circles, and other geometrical shapes from Babilonian time till today.
Used in construction, navigation, and surveying by Babylonians and Egyptians, and then passed on to the Greeks, geometry started as a collection of rules created to understand lengths, areas, and volumes.
Artists and architects—and, more recently, fashion designers—have sought inspiration in geometric figures for centuries. In the 20th century, whether it has been to build pyramids or to draw recurring motifs that artists like Piet Mondrian painted on canvases and fashion designers like Madeleine Vionnet and Gabrielle Chanel printed on dresses in the 1920s, the influence of squares, triangles, rectangles, circles, ovals, pentagons, and other geometrical shapes—as the base of objects’ shapes, the spatial relationships among them, and the properties of surrounding space—is undeniable even today.
Lookeast found geometric inspiration in the outfits of Pomelo’s new collection, and in one of Sansiri’s newest condominiums, and put them together for this month’s fashion section. This is the outcome.
