DBD logo 2013DIFFA’s DINING BY DESIGN brings together internationally celebrated designers and local talent to create dining installations that awe, inspire, and delight, and most importantly, raise critical funds for DIFFA’s work fighting HIV/AIDS. These extraordinary dining environments—from the lavish and opulent to the outrageous and whimsical—set the stage for five days of fun and fundraising from March 17-21, 2016. For the eighth consecutive year, the New York event will be held in conjunction with the Architectural Digest Design Show.

In 2015, Dining By Design relocated to a large space at Pier 92 and featured record crowds. Thanks to the generosity of sponsors and attendees of its COCKTAILS BY DESIGN and Gala dinner events. DIFFA raised more than $800,000 in support of its mission.

We welcome both individual and corporate sponsors. Whether your company or background is in a creative area or you are simply a fan, we encourage a cross section individuals and companies to participate and support DIFFA‘s work. Many designers and manufacturers will chose to host and design their own installation, however, we are happy to “match make” by helping identify a designer or team who can help execute your installation.

DIFFA invites all creative individuals and design-oriented companies from all fields and disciplines to create installations. Past participants include top architects, interior designers, fashion designers, floral and landscape artists, event producers, photographers, retailers and design schools.
