Fighting AIDS never looked so glamorous. DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS is currently showcasing its 19th Annual Dining by Design Event at Pier 92, right next to the Architectural Digest Design Show at Pier 94. Designers ranging from major labels like Kate Spade, Baccarat and Benjamin Moore to current Parsons students, created otherworldly table settings for fantasy dinner parties.

“Our goal is to convey that HIV/AIDS is still a very critical issue, while merging our passion for design to create a memorable experience that will raise much needed funds,” Johanna Osburn, executive director at DIFFA said in a statement.

Below, a few of our favorite table settings from the show.

Benjamin Moore & Cosentino, designed by Julia Buckingham, who was inspired by the great fashion houses.
Luxe Interiors + Design with LIAIGRE, designed by Sasha Bikoff. The room is supposed to look like a rainforest.
Rockwell Group + KNOLL. The artist Jon Burgerman illustrated the space.
Baccarat for Modern Luxury’s “Manhattan” magazine table setting
The room was designed by Echo and yes, that is a zebra coming in to say hello.
Gensler + 3form + Herman Miller; the red hearts are made up of two AIDS ribbons.
SA Baxter Architectural Hardware + INGRAO Room.
Robert Allen @ Home, designed by Madcap Cottages which was “inspired by far-flung travels.”
Arteriors made this room that was inspired by the lost city of Atlantis.
The New York Times by Lladró and Darrin Varden Design. This “love letter to the Gray Lady” is black and white and red all over.
