AN is proud to be a media sponsor of the 12th edition, which includes seminars in the Jenn-Air Master Class Studio and approximately 40 unique dining installations at Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids’ (DIFFA) Dining by Design NY 2013.

Artist Rachel Mosler begins by marbleizing paper swatches, which designer Nick Cope adapts for interiors on handmade cotton paper produced by Dieu Donné.
Miele‘s full suite of culinary appliances, including a 30-inch convection oven, steam oven, speed oven, whole bean coffee system, and plate and cup warmer, are now available in a glass-fronted white finish that highlights the products’ chrome handles and supports Navitronic touch controls. The new finish, Brilliant White Plus, facilitates a seamless visual across all of Miele’s collections in one of the year’s strongest interior colors (above).

Skram, a North Carolina-based furniture company, produces two versions of the Piedment Conference Table: Standard and Limited Edition. The Standard model is available in six different material options of solid timber construction with a wafer cut edge, while the Limited Edition is constructed from two book-matched wide plank timber slabs. Look for the table constructed from red gum timber at the AD Home Show this weekend.
