this 'table of trash' by swedish designer marie-louise gustafsson is near perfection in my estimation. i've always struggled (yes, that is the right word) with the fact that the action of crumpling paper and looking for the trash can and eventually realizing it needs emptying takes you away from the task at hand for which you're so passionate about in the first place, you're actually bothering to use paper. so this idea of just brushing it off to the side without a worry in the world is exactly what design should, care about me. and marie-louise's other work is also pretty spectacular, check it out.
