Gallery of Franke by Marc Thorpe
Marc Thorpe Design and Franke US present the “Gallery of Franke”.
Inspired by the design and technical achievements of Franke’s world-renowned kitchen sinks and mixers, guests are able to experience dining within the wonderful world of Franke as Art at the DIFFA Dining by Design Annual Fundraiser.
Each year, the organization Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA) calls on major designers to create dining environment installations for fundraising events. The program serves as an annual laboratory for innovation as well as an opportunity to participate in a good cause.
The design of this dining booth created by notable New York based architect and industrial designer Marc Thorpe, Creative Director Marc Thorpe Design, is a gallery style space prominently featuring specialist sinks and kitchen mixers from the global leader. Inspired by the Franke’s renowned kitchen sinks and mixers, guests can experience dining within the context of Franke’s product as art.
The design of the Franke DIFFA Dining space is the architectural translation of the Franke logo.
Black bands wrap up and around to the other side to create a dynamic structure to house a long table. The dining table was paired with another Thorpe design, his Husk chairs for Moroso, lighting by FLOS, and Alessi tableware.
We love how designer Marc Thorpe reimagined the gallery in this installation, with Franke products serving as the highlighted artworks!
