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! ;)
The Kruze Chair is a nicely-crafted piece of furniture that was designed by industrial designer David Fox, who collaborated with Boss Design. The Kruze Chair is available as a chair with four legs or with a recycled aluminium 4-star base. (via http://cribcandy.com/)
New stage for Nescafe Dolce Gusto with the launch of their new machine design, very successful and modern. A combination of product innovation and a futuristic look. Commercialization is scheduled for November 2009, with prices ranging from 149 to 179 euros. (via Fubiz)
Logitech G19 Keyboard
Logitech's G19 gaming keyboard—which borders on ludicrous with its embedded Linux mini-computer and full-blown LCD monitor—is the best one they've made yet, even if it doesn't quite reach its full mind-blowing potential. (via Gizmodo)
Screw work, LET'S JAM! "...once you've loaded your library and presets you can switch from a Kenny G to a Daft Punk at the simple click of a key. Heck, you can even configure the air pressure sensitivity as well if you're tickling for a soft mood, or just feeling lazy. And those funky LED lights, you ask? Well, they're actually indicators for the different modes you're in rather than just being pretty." (via Engadget)

Smartwatches have been around for almost two years I believe and despite all the efforts I feel that they haven't really taken off. I believe the main reason is that wristwatches are more than a gadget, they are an aesthetic piece that represents you and your style. We can see the huge amount of styles you can find, digital, analog, big, small, metal, plastic you name it and we are not even talking about colors.
With the era of how technology has evolved, young kids have started to be pretty familiar with our smart devices and companies have started to build smaller and yet more interactive things. Well, Dualai Studio had another concept; setting aside our smart devices and introducing Mumu. Inspired by Taiwanese Cultural Lifestyle, it's a set of play toys to build their own little house structure with magnetic interchangeable parts by trigging their freedom and joy to simply play.
I really enjoy seeing projects that bring nature closer to us at some level. Kids these days are all about smartphones, gaming and indoor fun, and there is simply no time spent outside.
Thinking about that, Bantum, an American product consulting firm, has asked Italian designer Andrea Mangone to come up with a way to reconnect people with nature. Meet Urbanoasis:
I haven't posted about industrial design in a while and it's always good to look for some inspiration away from the digital world. For this post I want to share this incredible project by Ion Lucin and Colorsponge titled Baik. The idea was to create a bicycle design with little elements as possible. The result is an amazing minimalist piece of art.
