Fans of design, dining, and Downtown Crossing will soon see their interests combine in a special project helmed by Design Museum Boston. The museum, which makes use of public spaces, unused retail space, and other locations to put on exhibitions and "turn the entire city into the museum," has paired up seven Downtown Crossing restaurants with seven design firms. Each firm is creating a "table vignette" for its restaurant, a specially designed table that serves to "accent each restaurant's themes and ideas," according to an announcement about the project.

Starting in June and running for a limited time, diners will be able to make reservations at the special tables, and there will be a special one-night-only event that tours all seven venues.

The participants are Legal Crossing and Bergmeyer Architects, Sip Wine Bar and Gate 3 Design, jm Curley and IDEO, Silvertone and Silverman TA, The Merchant and Payette Architects, Bonapita and Soldier Design, and MAST' and Nelson. Stay tuned for more information and a launch date.
