    Design: George Nelson for Herman Miller®
    Swag Group introduced in 1958

    A Signature Shape
    In typical George Nelson style, the design brief for what would become the swag leg group was deceptively simple: "Wouldn't it be beautiful to have some kind of sculptured leg on a piece of furniture?" Then came the challenges. Make the legs of metal, machine formed and prefinished. And design them for quick assembly. Using pressure to taper and curve a metal tube—swaging—proved the best way to produce the legs. Inserting a screw in the legs and rotating them in opposite directions made quick work of assembly. In 1958, everything came together to make a desk and tables in sizes that are right for home or office.

    Strength and Stability
    Legs screw together to make a strong joint. Solid walnut stretchers bolt to the legs to complete the stable, durable base.

    The desk's size is right for today's compact electronics. Solid walnut sides, back and stretcher with a white laminate top. Four hardwood dividers (2 orange, 1 spa blue, and 1 chartreuse), chrome-finished steel-tube legs, adjustable glides and a grommet for cable management.
