The Scene at DIFFA: Dining by Design

On Monday night, I had the pleasure to attend the DIFFA: Dining by Design dinner at Pier 92 in New York as a guest of the table designed by Verda Alexander and her firm Studio O+A for Teknion Studio.

DIFFA (Design Industry Foundation Fighting AIDS) raises funds to support research efforts to combat HIV and AIDS. For Dining by Design, a number of top design firms were invited to transform spaces to create unique dining environments for the dinner. Here are some of the more interesting dining installations:


This is the Gensler table with an infinity heart in Neon.



The entrance to the dining experience that was designed by LAB at Rockwell Group and Roche Bobois included a mist. “Manbun in the Mist!”



John Burgeman designed this space for Rockwell Group and Knoll.



The table for Manhattan was designed by Baccarat in association with Design Compendium.



The New York Times table was designed by Lladro and Darrin Varden Design.
