lacie, d2/big range
the d2/big range, design by neil poulton for lacie, underlines neil poulton’s ability to create timeless design statements.
designed as "desktop architecture", "scale buildings" or "little monoliths", the d2 range uses a precise, hard-edged and slab-like design language to express the "hard" machine efficiency of the hard drive.
since the launch of d2 in 2002 the blue eye has been the signature of lacie desktop products. the "d2" name and the eye itself is a nod and a wink to the earlier "coq" hard drive, design by neil poulton for électronique d2.
18 years later, after multiple iterations, design tweaks and evolutions, the d2/big range retains its original identity - extruded aluminium housing, injection moulded zamac/aluminium front plate - and glowing blue eye. cmf - colors, materials and finishes - are tweaked to perfection - the detail and build quality is exceptional and designed to last.
