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 Facebook or Twitter, and include "GenCept_Office" in the message, so we can check it. Alright? I hope you guys enjoy this brief selection. Cheers! ;)

Puzzling Optical Illusion Bookshelf with a Beautiful Minimalist Design
This highly creative shelving system was designed by John Leung from ClarkeHopkinsClarke Architects and has a very intriguing appearance. According to the designer “the bookshelf looks cartoony and almost invisible but that’s not even the real illusion, the real mind bender is that there are what seems like 4 shelves on the left side but only 3 shelves on the right side”. We really like this feature, even though it could cause some misunderstandings when it comes to asking your girlfriend to “grab that CD on the 2nd row” for example. Simple, practical and quite stylish, the unit can serve as a storage device for small objects such as books and CDs. Be sure to check out the video at the end of the post for a general understanding of how this shelving unit can puzzle the mind. (at Freshome)

Pixel is a new seating system from Not Tom, a small newish London-based design studio. Based on the LCD pixel, this upholstered bench can be used in commercial spaces like reception areas and can be assembled in a variety of configurations. Because it is supported by a steel frame, it is visually light yet sturdy. (at Design Milk)
