LaCie Christofle Sphere 1TB Hard Drive

LaCie Christofle Sphere 1TB Hard Drive

The LaCie Sphère is a handcrafted 1TB external hard drive enclosed in a spherical case made of silver–plated steel. Due to its round shape, the storage device requires a careful manual plating process. It is stamped, silver–plated and finally polished for a perfect brightness in Christofle’s silversmith workshop in Yainville (Normandy), France. The highly reflective finish makes the hard drive a decorative piece to accompany any upscale home or office workstation.

The LaCie Sphère gracefully connects to a computer with a single USB 3.0 cable that also powers the hard drive. The USB 3.0 connection delivers fast performance to quickly back up business documents or a media library. A blue LED illuminates the front of the LaCie Sphère to indicate hard drive status. Additionally, the 1TB hard drive comes equipped with LaCie’s software suite: Backup Assistant for easy and automatic backup, Private–Public for password protection, and Eco Mode for energy savings.

“The shape of the globe inspired the design concept for the LaCie Sphère. The sensual and strong silhouette naturally led us to the product name,” said Thierry Oriez, president and CEO, Christofle. “We combined our obsession with the reflection of silver with LaCie’s technical expertise to create a hard drive that exudes elegance and sophistication like no other.”

“With the Sphère, LaCie and Christofle have once again thought outside the box. In an industry where square thinking is the rule, this product reflects LaCie’s innovative edge,” Philippe Spruch, executive vice president, Seagate branded, CEO and chairman of the board, LaCie.
