CLS mobile drive
Freecom (NL/DE) 2011

Following the success of the XXS MOBILE DRIVE and other devices, 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, 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 coloured labels and a small USB cable. Alongside, a dock was also designed, allowing for 3 drives and 1 extra peripheral to be connected to the computer simultaneously.
