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?
First Perfect Office post of the year here, and we start it by selecting some super awesome items for you guys, like the beautiful Charles Pencil Case, for those that really love to have their pencils around all the time. There's also the beautiful 11+ World Clock to keep track of Earth's time. We've also picked the HP Stream Mini, a nice mini desktop PC. But there's more!

Charles Pencil Case
Made out of leather, the Charles Pencil Case by This is Ground is a great way to keep your pencils and sharpener organized on the go. The case is available in two colors of whiskey and black ink, both of which look charming as a handy pencil case for artists or school goers who are always in desperate need of creative pencils or pens. The wrap has 10 slots for storing your pencils or pens and one to store your sharpener. Since it keeps all the accessories in a simple rolled-up case, you need not worry about your pencil case taking up a lot of space in the bag. It’s super convenient for everyday travel and can slip through any corner of your bag whenever necessary. Adapt to this new style of carrying stationery on the go. (at The Gadget Flow)
11+ World Clock
Keep tabs on the current time around the world with the 11+ World Clock. From the front it looks like any other desk clock, with a clean design featuring a gray dial, gray hour and minute hands, and a bright red second hand. But turn it to the side, and you'll find the names of different international cities inscribed into the body, letting you simply roll your way to different time zones as the hands automatically adjust to show the correct time in whatever city or zone you've chosen. A smart alternative to the traditional "multiple clocks with city labels underneath" setup. (at Uncrate)
HP Stream Mini
The $200 HP Stream is the bargain-basement laptop to beat. But what if you want a desktop instead? Take a peek at the new HP Stream Mini. At just over 2 inches tall, 1.6 pounds light, and a mere $180 out of your wallet, this tiny pastel blue nettop packs a surprising amount of value into the case. Sure, you'll only get a 1.4GHz Celeron processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of solid state storage, and last-gen 802.11n Wi-Fi, but there are plenty of ports on tap. With a computer this cheap, you'll probably be plugging it right into a TV, and twin DisplayPort and HDMI sockets will make damn sure you can do that. Four USB 3.0 ports (two front, two back), an SD card slot, Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 4.0 a 3.5mm headset jack round out the connectivity suite, and the machine comes with a USB keyboard and mouse, a $25 Windows Store giftcard, and a 2-year, 200GB subscription to OneDrive.

Ecobee3 Smart WiFi Thermostat
Your indoor temperature and comfort adjustments won’t be based solely on your thermostat’s location anymore with the Ecobee3 Smart WiFi Thermostat. It uses a set of wireless remote sensors that can make temperature and comfort adjustments around multiple locations. The set includes one remote sensor but you can pair upto 32 with Ecobee3. It has a 3.5″ full-color LCD touch screen which features live local weather and forecast. You can adjust the temperature from anywhere and also save on energy as and when required. A new age smart home accessory that is compatible with most residential heating and cooling systems and is not based on your thermostat’s location alone. (at The Gadget Flow)
