La Gota Table

We probably shouldn't admit this, but we can spot at least five pieces of trash on our desk that need to be thrown away. Even though our trash can is located just below the desk, for some reason we have a hard time clearing off every bit of trash. Maybe we'd be better at cleaning up if our trash can was part of our desk.

The La Gota Table, designed by Timothy Emmott, is most likely the solution we've been looking for &mdash a true example of form meets function.

The table has a hallowed leg that serves as you guessed it &mdash a trash can! Last week we talked about a desk that allows for in tube cable routing and now a built in trash can, is this a new trend? Are designers starting to catch onto the fact that we don't want clutter or that some of us are needing to downsize and a desk that is more than just a desk can seriously come in handy?

Maybe. We don't really know the answer but we do know that we like this. The La Gota Table has an opening large enough for most items that would need to be thrown away in an office. Around the opening are several rings of ripples to ensure nothing accidentally rolls into the trash.

The desk is made from reclaimed lumber and the table top is made from a soy based polymer resin with bamboo fillers. So not only is this desk stylish and functional &mdash it seems as though it's not so bad for the environment either.
