Adaptable cutlery designed by William Welch for people with poor grip and restricted movement has scooped the top prize, worth £16 000, in this summer’s Oxo Peugeot Design Awards.

Welch’s design beat ten finalists covering the five award categories – applied metal design, ceramics/glass/ polymers, furniture, lighting and textiles.
