With his swag leg group, George Nelson didn't try to design an innovation; the innovation resulted from his criteria for the design. He began with the legs, insisting that they be made of metal, machine formed, and prefinished. He also wanted them to be easy for the consumer to assemble, so the desk and tables could ship knocked down to save on costs.

Ayako Takase of Kaiju Studios, a multidisciplinary design creative consultancy in Providence, RI, says "There are lots of beautiful desks out there, but they don't support work and home functionality." Takese, Cutter Hutton, and Chris Specce of Kaiju designed Airia to do just that by building in "purposeful and intelligent features," says Takase, like the dual-level desk top, technology management, and natural materials. At the same time, says Hutton, "We designed it to be shown off and on display in your home. The millwork detail on the walnut frame, sleek legs, and elegant form let Airia fit well with both classic and contemporary furniture. It's timeless. We intend it to be a desk you'll keep for the rest of your life, and give to your kids."
