The Product Autopsy workshop led by Powerhouse design resident Ben Styles at the Sydney Design Week Material Labs invites participants to disassemble, analyse and reimagine a selection of consumer goods and products, rebuilding them by hand using a variety of materials and assembly techniques.

Radical innovation in product design has flourished over the past century and materialised in the appliances, devices and artefacts designed to enhance our daily lives. This workshop presents an alternative to the throwaway culture encouraged by industrial manufacture and invention on an unprecedented global scale, asking us instead to consider repairing or upgrading these objects.
