dishwasher airgap

I was told at a kitchen fixture store that I would be able to have my new undermount sink installed without an airgap visible on the top of the counter. My contractor says he has never heard of being able to perform a "loop" under the sink in the cabinet to achieve the function of an airgap. Anybody know how to achieve this? I really don't like the look of the airgap on the countertop.

I know this sounds kind of stupid, but what exactly does an airgap do? The dishwasher drain in my house simply goes through the floor into the basement, where it's connected to a 1 1/2" drain line with it's own trap. I didn't have any problems with it for the past 3 years it's been installed that way. There is no "loop" of any way I can think of, the hose pretty much slopes downward the whole way.
