Design school graduates achieve success at the 2017 James Dyson Awards

James Molkenthin graduated from Loughborough University in 2014 after studying Product Design.

Comp-A-Tent aims to reduce clear-up times at festivals and improve the customer experience whilst helping the environment as well. The product has already been tested at well-known festivals including Bestival and Glastonbury.

Industrial Design and Technology alumnus, Peter Astbury, has created ‘Grace’, an innovative device developed as part of his final year project this year.

Grace has been designed to help over ten million women in the UK who experience hot flushes, often as a result of going through the menopause. With this equalling nearly one in three women, ‘Grace’ could prove to be the answer for a significant number of people experiencing these symptoms.

The James Dyson Awards is an international competition aimed at University students and recent graduates from 23 countries who specialise in industrial design, engineering or product design.
