One of the design industry’s most beloved fundraising events, DIFFA by Design, May 21–23, 2023
The immersive and inspiring event is co-located with ICFF + WantedDesign Manhattan at the Javits Center.
An immersive and inspiring annual exhibition/fundraising event, DIFFA by Design features dazzling installations by top designers and brands in support of DIFFA’s mission to raise awareness and funds for organizations providing treatment, education, and assistance for people impacted by HIV/AIDS, homelessness, hunger, and mental health issues.
“DIFFA’s DIFFA BY DESIGN has long been an iconic fixture on the design calendar,”
says Dawn Roberson, Executive Director at DIFFA.
“Designers are given the opportunity to showcase uninhibited creativity—an awe-inspiring gift for attendees who are able to immerse themselves into a macrocosm of design for good. The event has raised funds for scores of organizations throughout the years, such as God’s Love We Deliver, Housing Works, Planned Parenthood of Greater NY, and GMHC, to name just a few. We look forward to seeing what thought-provoking, mesmerizing installations our ultra-talented roster of new and returning participants will dream up. We are so appreciative of the support from our new partners at Emerald and ICFF + WantedDesign Manhattan.”
The three-day event will also include a pop-up shop featuring pre-loved designer clothing and furniture, an auction filled with fabulous design goods and a ticketed Gala—the bidding for the auction will commence at the DIFFA by Design Gala on Monday, May 22, 2023 from 6–10PM.
