Our enchantment with satisfying symmetries isn’t a recent phenomenon; it has deep historical roots. Aesthetic pleasure derived from symmetry has been a timeless fascination.
In the 20th Century, this fascination found expression in the works of various abstract artists. Renowned figures like Sol LeWitt and Josef Albers from the US, as well as Robyn Denny from the UK, embraced symmetry as a central theme in their art. Similarly, Aleksandr Rodchenko, through his photographs capturing Moscow’s post-Revolution architecture, created timeless images that could seamlessly belong to Geometry Club even in the present day.

Before the era of Sol LeWitt, Josef Albers, Robyn Denny, and Aleksandr Rodchenko, Islamic artists were pioneers in the exploration of symmetry. They believed that symmetry reflected the divine harmony of heaven, and their artistic endeavors were dedicated to bridging the gap between the artist and the divine.
Around the globe, mosques, from Mecca to Manchester, pay tribute to this tradition through intricate geometric patterns. Among the most renowned examples is the exquisite stucco and tile work inside the Alhambra palace in Granada, a masterpiece that stands as a testament to the timeless beauty of Islamic artistry.

“The quest for symmetry, and the emotional fulfillment we experience upon discovering it, serves as a means for us to comprehend the world around us, akin to the contentment we find in the cyclical nature of seasons and the steadfastness of friendships,” remarked Lightman.
“Symmetry embodies efficiency. It embodies simplicity. It embodies elegance.” And when it comes to perfect fits, it encapsulates a connection as well.
