Dinner by Design: High-Concept Design & Haute Cuisine

The fifth annual Dinner by Design, presented by The Social Concierge, is where Vancouver’s twin passions for fine dining and even finer design come together. Two tasteful and tasty nights (November 16 & 17, 2017) will benefit Interior Design Program scholarships at the Visual College of Art and Design of Vancouver (VCAD).

Dinner by Design will offer over a dozen top-tier, West Coast-based interior designers — such as Interalia Designs & YEW + Design BuildChrissy & Co.Ryleah Shae Design and Filosophi Event Design — free rein to create extraordinary tablescapes and dining rooms within a 12×12-foot footprint. The only limit is their imagination.

In keeping with the event’s mandate to foster the next generation of design stars, students of the benefiting VCAD Interior Design Program will be tasked with creating a camera studio, cocktail bar and video game lounge for Daily Hive Vancouver under the mentorship of designers Robert Blaney, Matthew Herbert of Sherwood Cabinetry + Consult YVR and Kyla Ray.

These installations will be unveiled at Dinner by Design and then moved to the Daily Hive office in Yaletown where they will permanently live.

“We’re very excited to have this year’s VCAD design students back to collaborate and create new spaces and even more excited to unveil them to the Daily Hive Vancouver team for their Yaletown office,” says Organizer Tyson Villeneuve. “Every year the VCAD mentorship program at Dinner by Design really elevates Vancouver’s interior design community.”
