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. Lighting finalists include Dominic Wilcox and Steve Mosley’s Dip Lamp (pictured). Identical when it comes off the production line, the flexible lamp’s final shape is variable by folding it from its upright position. Winners will be announced on 3 September.

The latest announcements also include a “multi-sensory” exhibition inspired by the sea at Oxo Tower Wharf.
