Australian hospitals produce 260 million kilograms of solid waste each year and health care facilities are growing at a rate of 5 percent. Grip provides ergonomically designed modular cutlery handles for people who have difficulties with griping a regular piece. It is the first product to use recycled HDPE syringes.

Welcome to Wasteland presents projects by creative disciplines – including architects, industrial designers, furniture makers and researchers – exploring the use of waste materials, offering visitors an insight into how leading practitioners are approaching Australian waste issues, not just with a sense of obligation but as an opportunity of crisis.


Contributors include Ash Allen, Jonathan Ben-Tovim, Christopher Boots, Breathe Architecture, Sarah Ceravolo, Adam Cornish, Thomas Coward and Nick Rennie, Ben Edwards, Tom Fereday and Ryan McGoldrick, Adam Markovitz, Liane Rossler and Kate Dunn, Maddison Ryder, Andrew Simpson, U-P, Anna Varendorff, Kristen Wang and many more.
