We demonstrate the formation of hierarchical structures in two-dimensional systems with multiple length scales in the inter-particle interaction. These include states such as clusters of clusters, concentric rings, clusters inside a ring, and stripes in a cluster. We propose to realize such systems in vortex matter (where a vortex is mapped onto a particle with multi-scale interactions) in layered superconducting systems with varying inter-layer thicknesses and different layer materials.
