products by russian-based design studio art. lebedev often play with digital icons such as a hand or mouse cursor,
the computer desktop file symbol or pixelated imagery, translating them into real products.
though taking a bit of a detour, their latest design still deals with the digital and comes in the form of a
disposable thumb drive called 'flashkus'. made from a cardboard stock material, the sticks come in sets of four,
divided by perforations which make them easy to separate and use. the paper surface allows one to hand-write labels
directly onto the drives, indicating what is stored on the key. they come in 4GB, 8GB or 16GB storage capacities.
