Aside from web & mobile applications, it's not every day that we stumbled across a case study for 'Television Experience'. More specifically for AppleTV and tvOS, even adding to that medium.
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! ;)

loat by Benjamin Hubert for Unique Copenhagen. The lamps are hand-turned out of Portuguese agglomerate cork blocks, the waste bits from the production of wine stoppers. Even the high volume of waste from creating the lamps can be converted back into blocks and turned again. The cork emits a wonderfully warm glow when lit and the simplicity of the shape suits the agglomerated pattern of the material. (via Design Trends)
Ipod and Iphone DualLink Cable
The duaLink cable for iPod and iPhone contains its own miniature USB hub, a single USB connector on one end, and two iPod connectors on the other end. If the promise of charging and / or syncing multiple devices from the same USB port hasn't blown your mind, the company has been thoughtful enough to place the whole shebang in a housing that seems to be a little more durable than the (admittedly not so durable) stock Apple cable.

Bookarc: Desktop Stand for MacBook
If you use your MacBook with an external monitor, Bookarc will literally turn it into a mini-tower desktop by holding it vertically next to the monitor. This will also help declutter your desk, giving you much more space to work with. And it actually improves your MacBook's performance... when the MacBook is running closed in Bookarc, it will dedicate 100% of its video memory to the external monitor, so you'll enjoy a noticeable higher speed, specially when working on any graphics application.

The idea behind these is that they are meant to be used by music professionals. More specifically they headphones are made for DJs, sound engineers, producers and musicians. The $350 price point definitely reflects that part. They are meant to have better sound than the current Beats Solo, and be very durable in terms of build and the drivers inside due to the expected constant use. (via Gadgetell)
