Design, Charity and Food at DIFFA's Picnic by Design 2013 event




An explosion of creativity adorned the roof top of the Scholastic building in N.Y.C. for DIFFA's second annual Picnic by Design event. Forty-five designers came together to create picnic settings that awed, inspired and delighted. It was an extraordinary landscape of people, food, color, pattern and three-dimension sponsored by Robert Allen Fabric, Lenovo, Maya Romonoff Starbucks, Dwell and New York Design Center. Besides great design and the beautiful sunset, fun was had by all at the event.....make your own berry mojitos with Patron, inscribe your own Patron muddler and great raffle giveaways! 

See some design...lets start with mine (MoD Design Guru's):

Life's essentials: fire, water, earth and air

Harmony between the elements is the inspiration for my picnic setting. The layers of the box pivot open to reveal the treasures inside, while providing a table for you and your guest. Many thanks to Robert Allen Fabric who donated the gorgeous Palmwood in Jet & Mod Reeves in Steel fabric, Vita lighting for the sculptural EOS light fixture and FiveStarMillwork who fabricated the picnic box.
