This is a photo-shoot that we did a while back. It was created for YWD magazine in 2009 when lounge furniture vignettes were becoming increasingly popular within events. It was a fun shoot and it’s always nice to look back on past work and see how we have grown and changed as designers.We called this shoot “Tokyo Lounge” as Linnae and I were enthralled in the modern aesthetics we saw evident in futuristic Japanese design. We chose to bring in vibrant red hues through the lounge furniture and the translucent plexi-glass inserts that were set within our candle walls. I really loved the candle wall element of this shoot. It was a dramatic backdrop and nothing says modern to me like candles burning behind red plexi glass.


I didn’t know it at the time, but as I look back on this shoot I realize that Linnae created “floral art.” White calla lilies flowing through clear vases and cymbidium orchids suspended in hanging vessels gave the flowers the illusion that they were dancing. It was an architectural and masculine shoot as each bloom was meant to stand alone. The curve of the flowers almost had a sexy, sleek demeanor to them that reaffirm the artistic execution by which they were set.


Like I said it’s always nice to look back and take what you learned as you approach every new design and opportunity in life.

About Asiel Design

We believe design begins with a relationship of trust with your wedding planner and event designer. When choosing an event designer or a wedding coordinator, we believe that you should feel listened to, understood, and guided through the process in a way, which helps you achieve a look and feel that is personalized to your style. There should be a connection with the designer’s work, esthetic, and a comfort-ability with the professionalism of the company they represent. Mutual respect between the client and the wedding coordinator or event designer is the foundation to a successfully designed event. We believe it is the client who holds all the secrets to their design – what they like, what excites them, and the message and experience they desire to convey throughout their event.
