the world's first cardboard vacuum cleaner


The Vax ev was developed by industrial design student, Jake Tyler, with the support of Vax's new product design team.

Jake worked with the team, based at Vax headquarters in the UK, for a year under the student placement scheme.

Since graduating with a first class honours degree in 2011, Jake has joined Vax as a full time employee.
