Alumnus launches Kickstarter campaign for second version of wall organiser

Simon Lyons, founder of product design company Version 22, has recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to support the production of a new version of the Geco Hub.

The Geco Hub is a wall-mounted organiser which expands to suit storage needs, designed for those in compact living spaces and rented accommodation. The first prototype was made from an old plastic chopping board, a silicone heat trivet and a rubber football. Since then, Simon has worked through hundreds of prototypes.

The crowdfunding recently began in order to finance the tooling needed to produce the second version of the Geco Hub on a large scale.

Alumnus Simon, who graduated with a degree in Product Design Engineering in 2013, was also a member of The Studio. He won the ThinkBig competition and received an Enterprise Award during his time at Loughborough.
