The inner workings of the universe may always be a mystery. One popular theory posits that the world is actually made up of mathematical equations. While we can’t say for sure, we do know that geometry is making its mark on weddings, corporate events, and milestone celebrations. Triangles, circles, diamonds — you name it — are all making their way into mathematical-inspired event décor. From ceremonial archways to funky centerpiece additions, it’s time to indulge in the “theory of everything.”
Diamonds are a Glamper’s Best Friend
Every snowflake begins as a hexagon. This winter-wonderland celebration accepted the mathematical beauty of the universe with diamond-structured “igloos” and laser-cut backdrops.

Be There or Be Square
This milestone-birthday celebration was a minimalist’s dream with clean lines and neutral hues. We especially love the geometric floral installation that transformed the bar area into a true work of art.
Walk the Line with Color and Shimmer
Abstract lighting structures transformed this gala into a futuristic dreamscape. We also love how the floral arrangements complemented the geometric elements with interwoven wiring.

Camp Out with a Sleek Gold Teepee
Lounge seating received an upgrade with this bold geometric installation. Oversized disco balls, suspended gold crystals, and aerialist performers were just a few of the details that made this party an event of a lifetime.
Loom Large with Mirrored Installations
2019 San Diego Comic-Con wowed guests with a 52’ truss tower that featured hourly performances and premier showings. The mirrored walls shone with ever-changing hues, perfectly reflecting the gorgeous surroundings in every color of the rainbow.
One Sugar Cube or Two?
Spotify’s annual holiday party was as sweet as ever with these up-lit sugar cube installations. Other intergalactic elements included a glitter face-painting station, a space-immersion arcade, and extra-terrestrial performers — not to mention a performance by Beck himself.

Spell it Out with Silver and Gold
The Mine Safety Appliances Company drew all eyes at their 100-year celebration with custom up-lit signage — we love how its construction made a clever nod to mining excavation. The same motif played out with geometric-shelving units used to display colorful hard hats.
Explore the Galaxy with Futuristic Elements
This corporate holiday was out of this world with geometric décor and luxe furnishings. Even the bar area boasted a stained glass-like facade with a modern, geometric feel.

Swap Florals for Sputnik Glamour
This Bar Mitzvah was full of funky elements like sputnik centerpieces and geometric projection mapping. We also adore how glass tabletops reflected the shimmering décor.

Say “I Do” in Igloo Splendor
This igloo-like ceremonial arch found its match with a twin bar set-up decorated in pampas grass and suspended candlelit globes. We especially love how crescent-shaped sofas served as ceremonial seating.

Keep the Kaleidoscope Turning with Laser-Cut Panels
Everything about this milestone-birthday party was sleek and modern. From the LED panel bar with mirror laser-cut panels to a twin custom-built wall perimeter, the setting was a kaleidoscope of various textures. Even the floral décor boasted sputnik wiring.
Add a Third Dimension with Origami Place Cards
Place cards received an upgrade at this jewel-toned wedding. We love the origami diamonds and cubes crafted in shimmering paper.
