AYA table collection by Foster + Partners for Benchmark

Dezeen Showroom: architects Foster + Partners aimed to create tables that last generations with the AYA collection, designed for British brand Benchmark.

The AYA collection features a dining table, conference table, high collaboration tables – with or without a reading light – and stools, all designed around principles of circularity and longevity.

The AYA collection consists of solid ash wood tables and stools

The tables are made of solid, FSC-certified, British-grown ash wood, which embrace variation in colour and character with the aim of minimising waste.

They are finished with natural oils so they are easy to refurbish, and built to a design that is simple to disassemble to enable future repairs.

The tables have gentle curves and are designed to last for generations

According to Benchmark, the pieces are sold with environmental product declarations and full carbon footprint labelling, as well as the offer of a lifetime repair service and a take-back scheme to promote sustainable consumption.

Aesthetically, the AYA collection is distinguished by its gentle curves and tactility, which help to create a restorative and relaxing atmosphere in either home or office.
