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. Each piece features an oversized handle filled with a ‘smart’ material responsive to human touch that moulds itself to user’s needs, while a stainless steel utensil head bends to aid hand and mouth co-ordination. Welch’s design beat ten finalists covering the five award categories – applied metal design, ceramics/glass/ polymers, furniture, lighting and textiles.
