New CLS Mobile drive designed by SYLVAIN WILLENZ for FREECOM

Following the success of the XXS Mobile Drive and other products, Freecom commissioned us to develop a new concept for collecting and organizing data.

The response is the CLS Mobile Drive, an external mobile hard drive that incorporates a labeling system on its side, enabling users to organize their data and identify hard drive contents at a glance.

Witnessing the growing number of hard drives owned by individuals for their data (music, data, films, back-ups...) and inspired by the old cassette tapes and floppy drives, we imagined a drive that could be labeled in a very simple and personal way.

The label is kept behind a removable window set in the side of the drive. The CLS comes in a stackable see-through case with spare colored labels and a small USB cable. Alongside, we also designed a dock, allowing for 3 drives and 1 extra peripheral to be connected to the computer simultaneously.
