This is usually referred to as "dense packing" patterns, a lot of the times generated programmatically with algorithms in scripts or custom external tools to fit the shapes. Perfectly doable by hand and e.g. using the symbol tools as well, though. it will just require a bit of tedious and repetitive manual labour. Having tools likje Astute Graphics' Collider Scribe would of course be a huge help and speed things along...

Without using any third party plugins I would probably draw the outside containing shapes, select Draw Inside, then use the Symbol Sprayer Tool to fill them with the little objects. There is still quite a bit of manual fiddling around involved to get all the gaps right etc.

I forgot to mention but you can try SVGNest or Deepnest to automatically fill containers with other shapes as well.
