The hard drive of your dreams

Instead of using a crystal ball to predict which desk item you’ll most be hankering to use in 2014, we'll opt for a silver one - handmade in France and vaunting a terabyte of space, to be exact.

On the back of last year’s inimitable, Philippe Starck-designed Blade Runner model, LaCie look to have another hard drive hit on their hands with The Sphère - a luxury storage-device sculpted by renowned French silversmith Christofle yet packed with a USB 3.0 connection that handily doubles as a power supply for both PC and Mac – and, tantalisingly, it's available for pre-order today.

High-end art meeting high-performance technology? If you do happen to have £370 lying around, you might want to relegate that miniature pool table to the bottom drawer while there’s still time.
