The Galet USB key
USB keys, pens, storage devices, whatever you want to call them, they’re ordinarily a bit mundane and lacking in style aren’t they? It does seem ironic and slightly passé that such a vital and everyday accessory should look nothing more than a mere plastic stick. Recognizing the urgency to revamp the USB key into an item that exudes style, luxury, class and affluence, the French luxury brand Christofle and LaCie, a leading supplier of storage devices for Linux, Apple and PC, have created the Galet USB Key – redefining the face of mobile digital data storage devices and thereby making mobility chic.
From their factories in Paris, every millimetre of the Galet is individually plated with precious silver through Christofle’s 150 year-old silvering process, guaranteeing a smooth and radiant finish. The Galet comes presented in a charming gift box, representing only the finest presentation and quality.
Talking of the values of the Galet USB key, Luc Pierart, Business Unit Manager at LaCie commented:
“The spirit and philosophies of Christofle and its luxury brand, combined with the technical expertise of LaCie, have come together to transform a universal technology into an object that is as beautiful and simple as a treasured piece of jewellery. Each time you open it a mystery is revealed – an elegant USB key.”
Another unique feature of the Galet, is that the 4GB data storage device includes LaCie’s Private-Public software with password protection, thus protecting precious data from potentially prying eyes.
The Galet USB costs £94.99 and is available from Christofle boutiques across the world, as well as the LaCie online store at www.lacie.com
