Mini Area Bruno Beds at the DIFFA Dining by Design Event


Posted by Ali | View all posts by Ali

Look! Mini Area Bruno beds! Anki Spets, founder of Area, was asked to design a table for the DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS) Dining by Design event held in NYC. Anki designed a table setup with 10 miniature Bruno beds with Area bedding and little figurines in the beds reading the NY Times (the table sponsor).  She used different Area fabrics to tile the background of the booth.

They also gave each diner a piece of clay to be creative during dinner (a great little ice breaker!). Nice show, Anki! Love it!

Over at DP we are all big fans of David Stark (check out this post), so I wanted to make sure and share that his new monograph is available today. We’ll have an interview and a giveaway coming up very soon, but if you just can’t wait, it is available starting…TODAY! There’s already a healthy discount over at amazon. Also, his new website design is A TRIP! It threw me right out of my internet surfing stupor and really engaged me – check it out here.

David Stark at DIFFA: Dining by Design


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky

Thanks so much to Casey over at David Stark’s office for sending me some shots of David’s table at DIFFA Dining By Design last weekend.

Paint can pendants; you can try this at home!

Even without the fumes, dining in this paint can would certainly make me high. I love the way he has deconstructed the dinner settings.  The whole oversized paint brush thing paired with the checkerboard table certainly has a down the rabbit hole vibe!

Check out the rest of David Stark Design and Production here. It’s hard to choose a favorite, but right now I’m swooning over the Metropolitan Opera’s 125th Anniversery Gala. All the graphics came from the Met’s archives. Bravo! (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself…):
