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?
We've got some great novelty items for you guys this week, like Tuco's must-have grill paperweight. For those who enjoy opening up their electronics and fixing it, there's the iFixit Refurbisher's toolkit. You may also find the Satechi ReadMate LED Desktop Magnifier super useful. But there's more!

Tuco’s Grill Paperweight
Breaking Bad is gone, but with Tuco’s grill paperweight you’ll always be able to have a piece of it all by your side. Plucked straight from the mouth of your favorite deranged drug kingpin, it’s the perfect memento for a hardcore Breaking Bad fan. (at This is Why I'm Broke)
Apple Macintosh Pen Holder
This Apple Macintosh Pen Holder is a 3D printed creation brought to you by Dutch designer and illustrator Metin Seven. It looks like the same on the front and back, made to resemble the original and legendary Mac. But it’s actually a pen holder with pixel art on it. You can use it to hold pens, business cards or any other junk you want on your desk or table. You could even use it as a pot for a small plant. You may also use it to hold your smartphones, but you should know that the pen holder has a coarse sandstone finish that may rub your smooth and stylish iPhone the wrong way even if they are kind of like distant cousins.

iFixit Refurbisher’s Toolkit
The electronics repair specialists at iFixit put together a set of tools that help you pop it open but then gives you supplies to clean consoles. Refurbisher’s Toolkit from thinkgeek comes with spudgers, tweezers, cleaning swabs, and most importantly a 28-bit driver set that works with a variety of screw heads and sizes. (at Like Cool)
Satechi ReadMate Magnifier
The Satechi ReadMate LED Desktop Magnifier might even look as though it is some sort of failed arc reactor of Tony Stark’s, where it will offer extra assistance when it comes to reading fine print, books and newspapers, and viewing photos, among others. This particular device is capable of offering 5 times more magnification, where there will also be a trio of LED lights which are capable of providing bright light for thorough inspection of text or objects.

Yorkie SE Speakers
The Yorkie SE Speakers from Well Rounded Sound are upgraded versions of the company’s famed Yorkie Speakers. It’s a fabulous looking cylindrical speaker set. The enclosure housing the innards of each speaker is made of 100 percent recyclable composite material. The speakers are cocooned by plush New Zealand wool that is hand-stitched to perfection. This wool is highly stain and moisture resistant, and offers just the right amount of dampening for the enclosure. The stand and other wooden parts of the speaker are either American Walnut veneers and solids, or carbonized bamboo veneers and ply. Oh, and if you want more speaker breeds apart from the Yorkie or Yorkie SE, they also have Jack Terrier, Corgi and Boxer speakers, and there’s even one that’s just a plain old “Woof.” (at The Gadget Flow)
