Our Kickstarter campaign is over, but you can still get a Geco Hub. Head over to www.version22.com for more info and to place an order. Thanks

Geco Hub is the one-stop grab-and-go storage spot which takes loving care of your important things. It saves you from wasting time and getting stressed looking for your keys, phone and more. 

Geco Hub always has what you need at hand
Geco Hub always has what you need at hand

This is the story of how I set out to change the way we organise.  

Four years ago whilst studying at university I thought to myself, "surely there has to be a better way to keep track of the important things from day to day?" Instead of jumbles of accessories cluttering desktops, heaps of pocket fillers messing up counter-tops everywhere and pins stabbing through tickets, coupons and nostalgia, what if all these things and more could be kept together securely, in one place, where you could see and reach them at any time? So I started making some prototypes; and after these prototypes started winning awards I realised I was onto something… and the idea for Geco Hub was born.

Geco Hub is grab-and-go storage for your important things, whatever they may be.

Over several years I have developed Geco Hub to be a super easy to use and quirky storage space that makes sure you find what you want, when you need it.  

Geco Hub was designed to do three things: 

1. Save you time 

Geco Hub saves you time by always having the things you need at hand, wherever is best for you. 

Geco Hub is a space just for the things you use the most

2. Make your day-to-day routine easier 

Geco Hub makes the morning routine effortless; from having your toothbrush to hand in the bathroom to reminding you to grab the birthday card you need to post on the way out.

3. Reflect your tastes 

Geco Hub comes in a range of 5 colours so whether you're looking for something to stand out or blend in you'll be able to find one (or more) to suit you.

Never put a shelf up before? Well Geco Hub’s not a shelf, and doesn’t have to be installed like one either. Using special adhesive pads you can install Geco Hub in loads of places all completely without tools!

For those places where adhesive pads won't cut the mustard rest assured... it can be screw mounted too!

Geco Hub and Version 22 have been winners, finalists and semi-finalists in several big competitions.

All that time you used to waste searching for things you needed? With Geco Hub there’s no more wasted time. Now the problem is deciding how you’re going to use the free time Geco Hub gave you.

All the things you need to take with you are there waiting by the door. Geco Hub can squeeze into tight spaces too!

Geco Hub’s compact shape means it can live in the most convenient spot for you, whether this is in pride of place on the living room wall or happily tucked away in that awkward space under the stairs. 

Geco Hub is modular and can be customised over and over too. What will you make? A pattern? An image... a name? Geco Hub comes in three different sizes: small, medium and large. Take a look at these sizes below:

Why stop at the home or office when you could take Geco Hub on the road? Or out at sea? Its compact size and strong holding power will always keep your things where they're meant to be. Motor homes, caravans, boats... Geco Hub goes wherever you go.

I spent over two years developing Geco Hub through countless different prototypes in order to reach the optimal design. Every detail has been meticulously thought through producing a product that is a joy to use, right from the easy tool-less assembly to its effortless customisation.

Our trusted suppliers and quality materials have been hand-selected to ensure Geco Hub is produced to the highest possible standards. You deserve nothing less after all.

The Materials

Geco Hub's flexible components are made out of platinum-cured silicone rubber, the same high quality material used in up-market heat-resistant kitchen utensils like pan-friendly spatulas.

Geco Hub's rigid backboard is made from ABS, the same tough material used to make professional power tools and shock-absorbing car bumpers. 

Together these high performance materials mean that you can rely on Geco Hub to securely hold your things day after day.

As a huge thank you for getting on-board early and helping make Geco Hub a reality, I’m offering 5 perks to Kickstarter backers:

Where We Are

After two years of design work Geco Hub has reached the final stage of development and now just needs minor tweaks before it’s ready for manufacture. Working prototypes have been produced and field tested. I have selected suppliers who are now ready and waiting. All that’s missing are the moulds to manufacture the Geco Hub components.

Where The Money Goes

Although I’m able to offer Geco Hub at such a bargain price, the manufacturing processes that allow me to do this are understandably expensive. I've come so far on my own already but this is the point where I really need your support to make Geco Hub a reality.

Project Timeline

Since the majority of testing and development has already been done and I’m working with such a capable team of people to help co-ordinate manufacture, I’m confident that I can deliver a high quality product to you in good time. Here’s the breakdown:

All Geco Hub rewards will be shipped from the UK.

I can’t make Geco Hub a success without you! I really appreciate everyone that is helping to make Geco Hub a reality and if you want to be part of the grab-and-go movement there are two things you can do to make Geco Hub possible.

As a thank you for helping spread the word I'm giving everyone that pledges for a Geco Hub and shares the project on Facebook or Twitter 5 extra discs free! With 5 extra discs you will: 

  • Double the amount of Accent Discs included in the Geco Hub Starter and Early Bird bundles
  • Create a complete set of 25 Accent Discs in the Geco Hub Creative bundle 
  • Create 2 complete sets of 25 Accent Discs (a total of 50) in the Enthusiast bundle.

Risks and challenges

I have a seasoned team of manufacturing and supply chain co-ordinators in Taiwan that are helping me communicate with all my suppliers and make sure things run as smoothly as possible. The suppliers I have selected have a proven track record of quality and reliability based on past projects they have completed.

Still Geco Hub hasn’t been made yet, there is always the chance that unforeseen problems and delays arise during the final stages of development. I am however totally confident that as a team we will be able to overcome them and deliver a high quality product to you as you deserve.

All that aside, the biggest challenge of all is funding. If we don’t reach our funding goal on Kickstarter by the deadline then we won’t be able to make Geco Hub happen.

I’m ready to revolutionise the way we stay organised… are you?
