We've seen some great gadgets and equipment for designers. So many cool stuff, that we could actually assemble infinite perfect office spaces! Every week we'll assemble a perfect office, and we'd like you to help us. What equipment would the perfect office have?
Not only gadgets and equipment, but also furniture, sound system, gaming stuff (for lunch time!). A designer is totally allowed to dream with the perfect office, and that's what we're gonna do here! Also, tell us your suggestions, or even better, you may tell us via twitter, using #abdz_ofc so we can check it. Alright? I hope you guys enjoy this brief selection. Cheers! ;)P.S.: Office Interior Design Ideas - Help us build this new area! Do you have an awesome home office and would like to inspire other people around the world? Contact me via twitter.
Cork Planter Bookend Set
Bookends that double as a planter and a mini pin board. Makes a great addition to any office desk. (at Holy Cool)
Lamps by Giles Godwin-Brown
The Candor Lamp is wall-mounted and is constructed of cotton and timber. Wired with LED lighting as well, this lamp features a transparent strip that generates a “halo-like” glow on the wall it is mounted on. (at Design Milk)
Lexar 32 GB USB 3.0 flash drive
The Lexar Triton USB 3.0 flash drive leverages SuperSpeed USB 3.0 technology to provide blazing-fast file transfer, with up to 155MB/s read and 150MB/s write (more than 20x faster than standard drives). This gives you the power, for example, to quickly and easily transfer 100 songs in less than 20 seconds and a full-length HD movie in less than 40 seconds. (at 7 Gadgets)
Level 10 M Mouse
BMW's cars are generally pretty elegant, so we'll forgive you if you fail to see the car maker's influence on the Level 10 M Mouse. The latest result of the collaboration between Thermaltake and BMW's Designworks USA, the M Mouse is designed to go great with the Level 10 PC Case, and sports a highly breathable design, a wired connection to eliminate lag, side A, B and trigger buttons, and an overall look that should be far more attractive to hardcore gamers than owners of 5-series sedans.

CES: Samsung Series 9 monitor
Looking sleek and thin (and matching my favorite super thin Samsung TVs) ~ it’s actually pretty comprable to the Apple 27” Studio display (though definitely need to play with it in person in a few days!) Both tout resolution of 2560x1440, contrast ratio of 1000:1, and viewing angles of 178/178. The Samsung however has a 300cd/m^2 whereas the apple has 375, and the Samsung is priced at $1199 while the apple is $999… though the Samsung has 2x 7W speakers built in as well as this interesting feature: “By linking their Android MHL-compatible smartphone, users can enjoy content from their mobile devices directly on the much larger screen and with the benefit of rich, built-in stereo audio. Users can also keep an eye on their smartphone, seamlessly browse to it and even charge the device for added convenience.” (at NotCot)
