Dining By Design
Dining by Design: My favorite time of year!
From Architectural Digest
As one of the nation’s largest supporters of HIV/AIDS service and preventive awareness, DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS raises millions of dollars each year through its fundraising efforts within the design community.
Dining by Design—the organization’s signature event, now in its 14th year—was recently held at Manhattan’s Pier 94 as part of the Architectural Digest Home Design Show and included fantastical displays of creativity at its best. Students, emerging designers, and some of the biggest names in the business—including architect (and chairman of DIFFA’s board of trustees) David Rockwell, celebrated event planner David Stark, and fashion designer Tracy Reese—dreamed up inspired installations that look more like pieces of art than dining environments. See highlights from this year’s New York exhibition, the first stop on its national tour.
