Twyla Presents Edward Granger at Dining by Design, NYC Our artist-designed dining environment for a great cause.
Twyla is participating in our first Dining by Design fundraiser in New York this week. Dining by Design, now in its 20th year, is a fabulous five-day showcase of designer-driven tabletop and dining room installations hosted by DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS). Dining by Design supports DIFFA’s mission of combating HIV/AIDS through preventive education, treatment, direct care and advocacy.
For our Dining by Design debut, we partnered with our newest artist, Edward Granger, to design a spectacular and immersive dining space. We’re in very good company, as other table sponsors include The New York Times, Crate and Barrel, Design Within Reach, Ralph Lauren Home, and many others. If you’re in NYC, the show is up through Monday (March 20) at Pier 92 in conjunction with the Architectural Digest Design Show. Come see us!
Edward Granger’s work blends his architectural background, a love of unconventional, Fauvist-inspired color and hard-edged geometry. For Dining by Design, Edward created a space where his vibrant geometric work literally bursts to life and even off the walls. The space includes a new large-scale art work and site-specific wall murals. Edward has been on-site throughout the event, creating new works of art— a first of its kind art activation at DIFFA.
Along with Edward, we also worked with Eliana Bernard and STICKBULB to perfectly finish the booth. The dinnerware on display is by Eliana Bernard, a ceramic designer based out of Austin, Texas. Our lighting was designed by STICKBULB, a company that manufactures LED lights in New York City from sleek, reclaimed wooden beams.
Even if you can’t be at Dining by Design, you can still be a part of it. Right now, we’re selling his exclusive limited edition print as a way to support DIFFA. See below and shop for a great cause.
