LaCie in Collaboration with Phillipe Starck for a Range of molten External Hard Drives

Lacie’s pioneering ambitious to transform the modern desktop to a contemporary spot of design, found another climax in collaborating with prolific designer Philippe Starck. Starck’s intricate design capabilities find expression in a pair of well-honed external hard drives, which are available in either a compact, mobile configuration or a desktop derivate. The drives share a functional yet appealing gray brushed aluminum enclosure, which is both protective and heat dissipating, in strong visual contrast to a polished organic front that is entitled as ‘sculptural magma’. Contrary the mobile modern sculpture, the desktop configuration accompanies a touch-sensitive field in the high polished molten front enabling a one-touch application launching. Further notably is Starck’s signature slender and widened ‘t’ symbol indicating the drives activity, and both feature USB 2.0 with 480Mbits/s transfer rate whilst the mobile disc is available with 320GB and 500GB, and the desktop with 1TB and 2TB storage capacity.
