Let’s face it: architects are savvy, design-minded beings who usually approach their gadgets and gizmos with the same level of discretion and attention to detail that they approach their architecture. They settle for nothing less than pure, honest, functional products (and you can be sure that any of their devices or accessories look great, too). In the spirit of architects’ impeccable taste, ArchDaily has curated a list of exceptional products for you to add to your wishlist.
