LaCie has understood already a few years ago, that in order to make its hard drives more appealing to its customers, the design was just as important as the technical equipment. After having teamed up with French star designer Philippe Starck in the past, the brand presents for 2014 its second collaboration with Christofle. Together with the silversmithing company, the brand presents the 1TB Sphere external hard drive. Plated in silver and polished to a shine, a single USB 3.0 cable at the bottom powers the device, which features a blue status light on the front. Just presented at CES, the LaCie Sphere drive will launch later this quarter for $490.
