Niall said: "We want to be like Take That or Gary Barlow - take 10 years out and then come back."
Take That - also made up of Howard Donald, Mark Owen and Jason Orange - split in 1996, one year after original member Robbie Williams quit the group, before announcing their reunion in 2005 and their three subsequent albums and tours have been met with universal critical acclaim.
However, One Direction - who are about to release their second album, 'Take Me Home' - have no plans to disband yet and are enjoying every moment of their sensational career so far.
Niall, 18, says the group love the album's second single, 'Little Things', and are looking forward to seeing the reaction of their fans when the video is released.
He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "We heard the new song and said, 'Yeah, that's a cracker, we want it.'
"For the video, we just kind of sit around in a studio and act like we're recording."
One Direction first shot to fame on 'The X Factor' in 2010 and were signed by show boss Simon Cowell to his Syco Records label after they finished third on the talent show.
