"DIFFA's DbD @ SFDC . . . "


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.
