Experts from the University of Derby’s Institute for Innovation in Sustainable Engineering have helped a small Derby firm to develop 3D models of its new invention: the Love Lock Tree.
These ‘trees’ are steel structures, in the shape of an evergreen tree, designed to safely hold thousands of padlocks as memorials or tributes, colloquially known as ‘love locks’.
This support was provided at no cost to the business thanks to grant funding from the European Regional Development Fund via D2N2.

This project is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020 in England.
