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?
There are some pretty awesome items for y'all today. We've picked state-of-the-art nixie tube clock Nuvitron, which looks simply beautiful. You may find Sony's HDR-AS50R Action Cam just the right fit for your recording needs. Motorola Moto Z is somewhat of a entry-level option to the modular smartphone era. And we've also selected the STUNNING ceramic lights by two.parts. But there's more!
GrooveBox Bluetooth Speaker
Enjoy superior sound and style wherever the party takes you with the GrooveBox Bluetooth Speaker by iGroove. Packed with a built-in 5.25-inch subwoofer as well as dual, full-range stereo drivers, you’ll hear incredibly deep yet clear bass with a superb frequency range. The hand-polished wood cabinet of the GrooveBox Speaker is elegant as can be while providing less resonance while the speaker is complete with a stunning glass top for a unique look. Powered by a large rechargeable lithium-ion battery, you get up to ten hours of playback on a single charge. (at The Gadget Flow)
Postmodern Nixie Tube Clock
Real nixie tubes are the "LEDs" of yesteryear. They proudly displayed their digits on scientific equipment, voltmeters, counters, and control panels. While they're no longer in production, the company that makes these has managed to scrounge up some from the Eastern European region of the former Soviet Union. So even though this isn't technically a limited edition, it is limited because any Nixie tube item depends on that original dwindling supply. (at Think Geek)
Sony HDR-AS50R Action Cam with Live-View Remote
With the Sony Action Cam you can capture the antics camcorder-style, or strap it straight onto your kid to capture the tomfoolery firsthand. (at Gear Patrol)
Motorola Moto Z
Modular phones are a great idea, in theory. In practice, they tend to look like a LEGO kit on the back of your phone — only worse. The Motorola Moto Z has a seriously smart solution. It's compatible with "Moto Mods", a series of accessories that snap onto the back of the phone using powerful magnets, adding features like better speakers, a bigger battery, or even a projector, without the need for unsightly ports. Otherwise, it has all the specs you'd expect, like a 5.5-inch Quad HD screen, a fingerprint reader, a 13 megapixel rear camera, super-speedy charging, and a water-repellent coating that helps it survive splashes and spills.

Christo Logan recently launched two.parts, a series of 3D printed ceramic pendants that illuminate the fixture with an invisible LED bulb. When looking at each design lit, it looks as if the light is coming from the interior surface instead of the hidden bulb. Using age old ceramic and coupling that with digital modeling and fabrication, it allows for complex hollow structures. By merging the two technologies, they’re able to make fixtures that conceal the LEDs, wiring, diffusers, and custom hardware, giving them a streamlined and modern look. Once the fixtures are glazed and fired, you’d never know they were 3D printed. (at Design Milk)
