DIFFA’s DINING BY DESIGN brings together internationally renowned and local talent to create dining installations to raise critical funds for DIFFA’s work fighting HIV/AIDS. These extraordinary dining environments 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 co-located with the Architectural Digest Design Show at Pier 92. 

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.
