Many of these award-winning products from the 2002 Industrial Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) demonstrate how plastics can enhance an existing product. In other cases, such as the medical industry, the phrase “Plastics makes it possible” is not far off the mark.

The IDEA program is sponsored by Businessweek and the Industrial Designers Society of America. A complete display of IDEA 2002 winners is available at www.idsa.org.
