The geometric shapes and ornaments can be accepted the most abstract produstions of human mind and con- sciousness. The geometric designs can be seen in almost all the cultures which producted movable and immov- able artifacts such as soil, metal, textiles. But the Islamic arts’ geometric designs, especially using architecturals and illuminates are di erent and developed excellencely from its own contemporay and ancient cultures. We can encounter the re-using the geometric designs, for today’s art and design medium charactarized as a bit post modern, is on the stage among the transitive of styles as a multicultural and multi ow, interdisciplinary, the di erent ow at new art and design production, di erent historical layer. It is possible to face to face with these facts on the using past times’ geometric design elements at today. They are becomign more visible the e ectives of past design elements as abstract expression today’s art, ready-made objects for design, a mature design, religious and/or historical belongingness and attaching importance to this, highlighting as an identity element, giving a deep-rooted image of history, putting forward the institutionalization, a postmodern attitude towards di erent things, the mobility of geometric designs up and down, right and left. As we have witnessed many times in the use of artistic and design products of the past, it is possible to read it as a result of consumption culture, in which new forms are not produced and the use of a ready-made design product capitalism emerges. It is also clear that the use of artistic and design products in the past is not progressive even if the forms are updated on the mind and perception.
