VODKA CHASER: Richard Chai delved into the world of interior design for this year’s Dining by Design benefit, which raises funds for the Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS. Chai partnered with sponsor Effen Vodka to create a lounge and bar at the installation on Pier 94. “We came up with a concept that was inspired by the circular shape of the Effen bottle. We wanted it to feel organic and not like a cookie-cutter rectangular bar,” said Chai of his glass-and-wood design. The event kicks off Thursday at a cocktail preview, which precedes a black-tie gala on Monday that will honor Alfredo Paredes, executive vice president and chief retail creative officer at Ralph Lauren Corp. Dining by Design, along with Chai’s lounge design, will travel to Kansas City, Detroit, Atlanta, Chicago and San Francisco later this year.
