fuseproject, a multidisciplinary design firm founded by Yves Béhar, has partnered with startup Functionland, to launch FxBlox. FxBlox is a physical hardware device that lets users store fully encrypted data, files, and photos, providing secure, user-owned, decentralized storage.

Functionland, with its mission of ending the “rental web” by offering a user-owned, decentralized cloud alternative, sees FxBlox as a pivotal first step toward this goal. It gives users the ability to own their server, connecting to a network independent of big tech’s cloud services and without subscription fees.

Using Functionland’s open-source data protocol, the Fula Network, FxBlox devices in a local area connect to form a mesh network. This enables individuals to back up each other’s data while keeping it encrypted, ensuring its safety and accessibility only to the original owner.

According to Fuseproject founder and CEO Yves Béhar, “Functionland is disrupting the cloud storage paradigm with an innovative solution that brings the security of blockchain and the simplicity of SaaS into every household. It’s cooler than the cloud, and this emotion is captured in the FxBlox design—a refined hardworking device that tech-savvy users will be proud to have on display in their home.”

Fuseproject partnered with Functionland to develop FxBlox’s look and user experience from the ground up. The result is a highly customizable, modular product that allows users to add storage by connecting expansion cards, adding new storage towers, or plugging in external devices.

Functionland’s founder and CEO, Keyvan M. Sadeghi, noted, “We’re proud to work with Fuseproject’s design team on FxBlox’s core product offerings. We want the FxBlox to be more than just a block of high-performing hardware. We want it to be an element of home design that anyone would be proud to place on their office desk or see every day in their home.”
