Dining By Design: Alessi

February 26, 2007

Sponsored by the New York Times, this space was designed by Alessi for Dining By Design. Very cool, minimal, great chairs, love the writing on the wall – great play on words, “Aless is More”. Are those Frank Gehry cloud lights I see?

DIFFA’s Dining By Design

February 26, 2007

This past weekend, the much anticipated DIFFA’s Dining By Design, presented by Elle Decor and GE Monogram, was held in NYC and it dazzled! To those of you not familiar with DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS), they organize Dining by Design, an annual fund-raising event. It is here that some of the most talented names in the design world are given a blank canvas – an 11′ x 11′ space – to transform into a dining room, with the focus being the tabletop. As long as ten can be seated, there are no limitations, so you can imagine the pleasure of creating one of these rooms, as well as being a guest viewing it – they’re so beautiful to see in person. I’ll share images from Dining By Design all day here on decor8, so stay tuned. You may even spot Margaret Russell…
