Table: Air 
Created: 2010
Manufacturer: Narbutas Furniture Company

The executive table Air, designed by Gediminas Juška, was awarded the Lithuanian Good Design Prize in 2012. It is a massive table covered in a natural veneer, with an integrated plant pot or accessory storage place, and a hidden plug hub for cable management. The idea behind this minimalist piece of furniture is to have all the necessary functions of an office in one object, with a natural oasis in the workplace which needs to be tended to and looked after like a miniature garden.

Since completing a degree in architecture at the Vilnius Academy of Arts in 1998, Juška has specialised in the design of office furniture and interiors, working together with Lithuanian manufacturers (Tekos baldai, the Narbutas Furniture Company, and Gurda). Since 1998, he has regularly participated in national and international furniture exhibitions, and has won some important prizes. His Ultima series of office furniture won the Grand Prize at the Furniture 2001 international show, the furniture series Paradigm (2002) and the office chair seriesSupra were awarded the gold medal at the Poznan International Fair in Poland, and the office chair series Supra was chosen as best product in Lithuania in 2004 and awarded a gold medal.
