Hot! Designers, Charitable Folks and Others Attend Diffa’s 17 Annual Event

Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA) 17th Annual Dining By Design: Cocktails By Design

We were once again delighted to attend the annual DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS 17th annual Dining by Design Cocktails by Design, an event which runs concurrently with the Architectural Digest Home Design Show and features some of the most chic and fashionable dining designs by notable artists from the industries of fashion, interior design, art, and architecture. The work of famed designers such as Diane von Furstenberg, Herman Miller, and David Rockwell, were featured in displays of elegant, fashion-forward, cutting-edge, classic, and sophisticated indoor and outdoor dining displays. Top New York City design schools such as Pratt Institute, Fashion Institute of Technology and the New York School of Interior Design also participated, bringing up and coming designers to the attention of home fashion lovers.

Among our favorite designs were the elegant display sponsored by Barney’s New York, featuring a wall of fantastic photographs by the legendary Bruce Weber.

We also enjoyed Diane Von Furstenberg’s Kravet, which featured a plethora of prints and colors on plush furnishings cleverly brought together to create a hip and welcoming dining experience.

Marc Blackwell New York also caught our attention:

“My DBD tables have always been self-contained – the light source, the table, the guests, altogether in one unit – because I look forward to the day when we gather to celebrate the end of AIDS.”

The event also featured chef and food stations from  Asellina, Champagne Sweets, Clement, Dylan’s Candy Bar, Indochine, Davio’s, Jeepney, Mari Vanna, Murray’s Cheese, My Belly’s Playlist, Nitehawk, North Square Restaurant, Pera Soho, ROYCE’ Chocolates, and Lady M Confections. And guests were encouraged to nosh on a variety of gourmet eats, while Patrón cocktails flowed freely along with red and white wine. A boisterous crowd of home décor and food enthusiasts gleefully toured a space that was an elegant mashup of food, drink, and dining fashions.

Proceeds raised from this event benefited DIFFA, an organization that is dedicated to HIV/AIDS education, prevention, treatment, and research nationwide. Check out more on this important organization at www.DIFFA.org.
