Dining by Design: Decadence by Default

More than 30 top San Francisco design firms dreamed up fabulous fantasy dining vignettes for DIFFA's (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS) 26th annual Dining by Design presented recently at the San Francisco Design Center's Galleria.

Which setting would we choose to entertain our dinner party guests this season? 

Would it be under the sea....

Poggenpohl, by Adeeni Design Group

...or under the stars?

San Francisco Design Center designed by Candace Barnes

Snug in a tee pee...

Gensler and Haworth 

... or tucked in a tube?

John Lum Architecture

In a confectionery?

Taste Catering & Event Planning
and Gumps
designed by Billy Cook

Or, perhaps,  a glorious birdcage...  

Steven Miller and Paul Benson

Of course, we'd set another place at the table as birds do come with their own "peeps".

The New Weigh to Office

Why walk to work when you can walk at work?

Fly through emails, take that important overseas call, send out those zingy memos... all while working off that late lunch with the out-of-town power brokers.

Who's the hotshot master of multitasking now?
