The tableware, called fungi, comprises several bowls of different sizes that can be arranged in various ways to hold both food and objects.
The designers chose the unusual name because of the way the bowls, when stacked, seem to be growing out of each other like fungi.
“When combined, the bowls almost appear as if one is growing out of the other, or sprouting from the edge of another, reminiscent of the growth of mushrooms,” said nendo.

The larger bowls are intended to be used to serve or display fruit, whilst the smaller can carry dips or sauces.
The collection includes shallow bowls that could be used to float candles on liquid, or for other decorative uses, and bowls with deeper sides to contain flowers.
