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:
