The focus for the AYA collection is to create more from less. Made in solid timber, the humble form of Foster + Partners’ restrained design is combined with material honesty to delivery beauty and functionality with minimal impact. Launched with Life Cycle Analysis and Environmental Product Declarations, AYA is presented with full carbon footprint labelling, a Lifetime Repair Service, and a Take Back Scheme to encourage sustainable consumption and a circular mindset.
The AYA table is available at standing height - for more informal working scenarios - or as a lower conference table. The durable oak table has soft splined edges and brings the notion of the library to touchdown working. A linear light rail can be added, along the centre of the table, which psychologically provides a sense of privacy for those sitting on either side.
AYA offers a suite of power options, which can be specified on a project-by-project basis. Power is supplied to the worksurface via the leg of the table and flush panels on the tabletop seamlessly conceal plug sockets, for charging laptops and phones.
Foster + Partners and Benchmark have also designed a high stool which aligns with the standing table. The stool shares the soft geometry of the table and incorporates foot rails for additional comfort.
