This is gonna have to be a quick one - I've been out of the office a good part of the week (feeling a little under the weather) and need to catch up on a ton of work.
So, here's an enormous helping of design wonderment and a flurry of industry insider acronyms . . . the DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS) big fundraiser, Dining by Design (DbyD), took place this week at the SFDC (San Francisco Design Center) . . . .
Here are a few shots from the "Table Hop & Taste" on Wednesday evening that opens the two day event . . .
The Design Center's Galleria Building is such a perfect place for the event.
The four storied atrium space allows a view of all of the tables - and the great
image of the big party on the main floor . . .
Designed by John Lum Architects.
constructed entirely of corrugated - almost like a giant series of paper dolls . . .
have a look at the photo below - taken from the second floor - and get
a better idea of the amazing design.
Great to have Ralph Lauren Home participating this year . . .
And a serious festival of textiles from Kravet.
What better way to host dinner than with a upholstered chairs, table, and
custom designed bento boxes.
And it wouldn't be a San Francisco Dining by Design event without
a healthy dose of drama. And this year Steven Miller Design certainly filled the bill.
His "Exotic Bird Cage" was amazing. And who doesn't like a bit
of performance art with dinner.
