Freecom’s CLS external hard drive series take an aesthetic page from cassettes and floppies of our already distant memory. Each 2.5-inch drive is minimal, durable and can be hand-labelled for quick reference to its contents.
The German-made, Belgian-designed drives can also be docked three at a time, via a single USB connection, allowing you to consolidate space (And admire the retro look. Why do things look cooler when they’re vertical?). When you want to pack them up, they’ll slip neatly into plastic cases for further ’80s fetishisation. [Freecom via designboom]
