Geco Hub | Home For Things Without A Home (Canceled)
Geco Hub. Setup in minutes. Use for years. Modular, customisable grab & go storage that makes sure your important stuff sticks around.
Funding for this project has been cancelled... but this isn't stopping Geco Hub!
Have you ever lost your car keys around the house? Been unable to find the receipt for that faulty thing that had to be returned? Or forgotten to grab the envelope you needed to post as you were heading out?
...These problems and more were the inspiration for Geco Hub.
More compact than shelves and free from the clutter of counter tops and coffee tables, Geco Hub is a place just for the important things.
Geco Hub can be installed in the best place for you to have your belongings at hand when and where you need them most.
You choose how to install your Geco Hub
Geco Hub can be easily and neatly mounted to surfaces using screws or adhesive pads. This means surfaces that can't be drilled into won't stop you any more.

The Geco Hub system is expandable
- A single 5 x 5 Geco Hub unit works great on its own but add another to make 5 x 10, or add two 5 x 10 units together to make 10 x 10 and together they can hold more than they ever can apart
- This is because the area between adjacent Geco Hub units acts as extra storage space when two are joined together. "The sum is greater than the parts" really applies here!
7 Places Geco Hub feels right at home
1 | In your bedroom for your phone, charger and earphones
2 | In your kitchen for utensils or herbs and spices
3 | By your desk for staplers, rubbers and pens
4 | In your bathroom for toothbrushes, flannels and shavers
5 | In your workshop for your spirit level, pliers and screwdrivers
6 | In your studio as an interactive ideas board
7 | On your boat to keep stuff from sliding around!
Where would you use it...?
Geco Hub doesn't need pins to hold your paper things. This means no more poking holes through postcards, envelopes and photographs!
Geco Hub is a real power house
Don't let its tidy, compact size fool you. Geco Hub can hold a heck of a lot of stuff! Here's a pic of how many heavy things you could store in your 5 X 5 unit.
Available in 5 awesome colours
You can make your Geco Hub unique to you
Mix it up whenever you want - your Geco Hub is truly personal to you.
Fun and easy to assemble
Geco Hub can be assembled by hand, without tools or glue, in just a few minutes.
Geco Hub's flexible components slot together on the backboard to make up Elements (you can see an Element being assembled above). The number of Elements determines the size of your Geco Hub:

A breakdown of what you get
The Geco Hub Story
I dreamt up Geco Hub back in 2010 whilst trying to come up with a fun and easy way to keep organised when leading a busy lifestyle.
I worked part time developing and patenting Geco Hub whilst studying at university and since graduating last year have been working full time taking the last steps in getting it ready for Kickstarter and you guys.
I've been through countless different designs and months of testing to get to this point and now I need your help to take the biggest step of all... to get Geco Hub into production.
Proudly made in Britain
I have a ready selected lineup of high quality, trusted suppliers here in the UK who will make all the components and packaging needed for each Geco Hub.
I believe supporting British business is important and manufacturing here in this way will also reduce the environmental impact of Geco Hub as well as helping me ensure every Geco Hub is produced to the highest quality standard (you guys deserve nothing less, after all).
Why I Need Your Help
The money raised through Kickstarter is crucial to the success of this project and will be used to pay for the following:
- Finalising the design of Geco Hub
- Creating the steel tools used to produce the backboard, fin and disc components as well as cut the packaging templates.
- Meeting minimum order quantities for each component and colour
- Geco Hub's packaging and instructions.
How can you help?
Geco Hub won't happen without you. To be able to pay for all the things needed to make Geco Hub a reality I need to reach my target of £35,000.
I know this can't be a one way street though and that's why I'm offering Geco Hubs to all backers at a discounted rate as well as throwing in opportunities and experiences exclusive to Kickstarter in some reward levels to say a big thanks for joining me from the start.
You can pledge by clicking on the green "Back This Project" on the top right of this page and following the instructions.

Risks and challenges
As with all product based Kickstarter projects there are bound to be unforeseen hurdles that show themselves during the journey to get Geco Hubs into your hands. Through thorough planning and careful execution however I am confident we can overcome any that arrive and produce a high quality product in a timely manner.
Manufacturers to produce the Geco Hub components and packaging have already been selected. The entire supply chain, from components leaving manufacturers' premises, through assembly and shipping, to Geco Hubs arriving at your door, has been discussed in depth with a logistics provider.
I will of course keep you updated with how things are going as we go along and will be as transparent and open about everything as I can. It means a lot that people pledge to support my dream so I will do everything in my power to keep you happy!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
