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! Comment telling us your suggestions, or even better, you may tell us via twitter (mine and fabio's), using #abdz_ofc so we can check it. Alright? I hope you guys enjoy this brief selection. Cheers! ;)
SelfShelf Floating Book Shelves
Having a French book among your other books might impress some people. Having this book 'Ceci n'est pas un livre' (which translates into: 'This is not a book') is specially impressive, cause it's not really a book, it's actually a fake book that attaches securely to your wall and holds your real books, giving them an impressive floating effect.

Truncheon is a series of lamps designed by Commonwealth (Zoe Coombes and David Boira) for MatterMade consisting of a suspended tube light, an articulated task lamp and a freestanding tube that rests against a wall.
Avoiding unnecessary knobs or switches, the Truncheon adheres to its namesake, a simple compact stick form fashioned out of traditional materials and shaped by advanced digital technology. Resisting the demand to convert to compact fluorescent bulbs, the designers opted for energy-saving LED bulbs. (at Design Milk)
