The Fade collection by young designers John Astbury and Kyuhyung Cho consists of 13 pieces all derived from the same motif: a rounded shape that sits somewhere between square and a circle.

"The aim was the representation of transformation within the objects," Kyuhyung Cho told Dezeen. "The process of shifting from one state to another was the inspiration."

The family of products includes a low table, a mirror, and a collection of trays and vessels, all in greyish-blue tones.

The trays and vessels come in a range of sizes and each is made from parian clay, traditionally used in the slipcasting process when making pottery.

The clay was used for this collection to add "a weight and expectancy appropriate to ritual," said the designers.

The ash table is formed from a tray-shaped top sat on four legs, while another tray with a circular copper mirror in the centre can be mounted on the wall.
