Our team had a great time supporting and attending DIFFA by Design’s Annual Gala, Dining by Design, with M Moser last week. The basis of this event is that DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS) invites designers to create unique dining areas for their guests. DIFFA’s Annual event is co-located with the Architectural Digest Design Show at Pier 92 in New York City to raise money to fight against HIV/AIDS.
M Moser’s dining area had an exceptional story that they explain below:
“Using design to visualize information, M Moser Associate’s Dinning by Design installation highlights the contrast between past stereotypes and statistics around HIV/AIDS and the most current data reported by the UN AIDS Organization. Through the use of various techniques, materiality and technology, the installation is meant to draw out a visceral human connection to evoke accountability to one another. With current treatments having transformed a positive HIV diagnosis from a death sentence into a treatable chronic illness – and the end of the HIV epidemic by 2030 a tangible possibility – the design explores both a dark look into the past and light vision of the future. By examining both a utopian and dystopian point of view, we aim to encourage contemplation and ultimately action in the Race to Zero new infections and zero discrimination in the continued fight against HIV/AIDS.”
