Objects ranging from an inflatable office that comes out of a bucket to a set of tea-coloured mugs are among 12 finalists for the Oxo Peugeot Design Awards 2003. Shortlisted from over 350 entries, objects were judged in five categories – applied metal design, ceramic/glass/ polymers, furniture, lighting and textiles.
