NEW YORK Avi Adler's decor for the dinner portion of the the Robin Hood Foundation's annual gala was a vision in black and white, with lots of geometric patterns. “It's all very graphic and very Op Art,” Adler's partner, David Stark told us. Adler and Stark created a vast, circular-shaped space in a room in the northern wing of the Javits Center by draping the walls with alternating patches of black and white fabric. Images were projected on the white patches throughout the night: first rapidly moving black and white kaleidoscope images as people entered, then slower patterns during dinner and later bursts of color. “The decor's constantly moving and changing,” Stark said.
The huge amount of space--which you'd have trouble finding anywhere else in Manhattan--managed to fit almost 300 tables for 10 with plenty of room to spare for the army of caterwaiters from Glorious Food. The tables varied (some with black chairs, some with white) and all were covered with a variety of black and white patterned tablecloths--stripes, checks, checkerboard print--and had white peony centerpieces.
