Although it was introduced in 1958, the desk seems to have been designed to fit today’s compact electronics. A grommet for cable management has been added to the back of the desk. Colourful cubbyholes at the back keep materials organised and at hand, and one fits a laptop computer. Two moulded plastic drawers store smaller items.

We named this furniture group for the process that created the distinctive legs because designer George Nelson started with this idea: “Wouldn’t it be beautiful to have some kind of sculptured leg on a piece of furniture?” How could that be done without wood and hand-carving tools?

Using pressure to taper and curve a metal tube — the “swaging” process — proved to be the best way to produce the legs. Inserting a screw in the legs and rotating them in opposite directions makes quick work of assembly — and makes a strong joint too. You can assemble the pieces yourself and save money on shipping.
