Digitization is in full progress. Slowly almost all analog information is being transferred to a digital medium. The Top Secret USB stick is meant to be one of such modern mediums. On it, memories can be stored that deserve more than just a digital folder on a desktop computer. Such dear and beautiful memories as a diary, baby-pictures, a wedding album. The Top Secret usb stick is also suitable for a business message, like a contract, a manual or a business quote.
This porcelain usb stick with classic wax seal is a combination of forgone times and the present. Porcelain is an honorable commodity but is delicate at the same time and should therefore be carefully used. This is why the material of the product is connected to the concept; “Personal information is fragile! So handle with care.”.
Top Secret is a product of her-berg, the design studio of Rob Hermes and Marlies Romberg. These young Dutch designers are looking for a recognizable combination of classic influences and modern technology. Both are graduates of the Utrecht School of the Arts (HKU). Their cooperation focuses on conceptual design, where they combine craftsmanship and originality with a constant demand for perfection. Her-berg: “We keep the production of our products as much within our own workshop as possible, this leads to her-berg results.”.
