Starck first worked with LaCie around 20 years ago, to produce the Toaster range of hard drives, and more recently developed a range for the company in 2009.
The new Blade Runner design features a metal interior within an angular, cage-like shell with the blades, according to Starck, working to keep the interior cool.
Starck says, ‘In my design nothing is useless – style, symbolism or functionality. In the Blade Runner, the warm interior electronics are encased in a mystifying shell, and the blades are the radiator that cools it down.
‘The suspension gives space for the air to circulate around the hard drive, and the metal material increases the temperature conduction.’
The limited-edition 4TB hard-drive is priced at £199.99.
