Founded in 1984, the Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA) organization launches a tour each spring titled Dining By Design mixing top design with fine cuisine. Currently located Pier 94 in New York City through March 22, the tour will make stops in Kansas City, Chicago and Francisco.
For the third year in a row, Walt Disney Signature joins the DIFFA exhibition, this time teaming up with renown Italian designer Cappellini to bring a touch of Disney to haute design, allowing attendees to indulge in a delectable combination of dining and Disney.
The exhibit features a 10-foot tall polyurethane sculpture of Mickey Mouse who hovers over the installation which contains elements such as seating and a throw offering Mickey Mouse accents. The Cappellini ribbon stool (designed by Nendo), featuring Mickey ears as a backing, will be available as a limited edition at the Milan Furniture Fair in April.
