Ayako Takase and Cutter Hutton of Observatory designed the Airia Media Cabinet as a companion to the Airia Desk. The pieces share a material language—a
handsome combination of walnut and painted aluminium and supports functional and aesthetic needs in the home office.
Takase and Hutton, believe that good design can create an emotional connection between object and individual, a philosophy that inspired the making of
Airia. “We wanted Airia to be alluring to the eye and satisfying to the hand, to spark an emotional response from first sight, but also after years
of use in the home,” says Hutton.
The media cabinet complements the desk with its white surface and tapered legs. A slightly elevated secondary surface provides a place to keep books, objects or refreshments. Cut-outs for cords and cables free the surface of clutter from your charging devices, and slender drawers help to organise papers. “We intend it to be a desk you’ll keep for the rest of your life — and give to your kids,” Hutton says.
