DIFFA Dining By Design

DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS raises awareness and grants funds to organizations that provide treatment, direct care services, preventive education programs and advocacy for individuals impacted by HIV/AIDS. Held annually in March, DIFFA invites local and international designers to transform a raw space into a showcase of over-the-top dining environments for its annual fundraiser for HIV/AIDS—DINING BY DESIGN. We’re so excited to be collaborating this year on a table with Poltrona Frau designed by Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz also featuring LASVIT Lighting.


Co-located with the Architectural Digest Design Show, DIFFA’s signature event gathers thousands of supporters at Pier 92 in New York City to fundraise for a cause. This year’s 20th Annual DINING BY DESIGN will combine a worthy cause and exceptional design into a 5-day event with more than 2,000 people at the two fundraisers.

Since its founding in 1984, DIFFA has emerged from a grassroots organization into one of the largest funders of HIV/AIDS service and education in the U.S. With chapters and community partners across the country – including Chicago, Dallas, Kansas City, San Francisco, Las Vegas and Seattle— DIFFA has granted more than $41 million to support hundreds of nonprofit organizations across the country combating HIV/AIDS through preventive education, treatment, direct care and advocacy.

Mobilizing the resources of the design industry to raise awareness and funds, DIFFA has created legendary programs and events that highlight a cause that has significantly impacted the industry for over three decades.
Combating misinformation, ignorance, and prejudice is a vital element in the fight against HIV/AIDS and DIFFA is committed to continuing its support for this important work. By combining talent, creative marketing strategies, and a national network of volunteers and donors, DIFFA has found a way to merge care with commerce to great success.

You can view the tables at Pier 92 right next to the Architectural Digest Design Show and be sure to stop by our booth #431!
