AYA Stool

Designed By Foster + Partners


The aim of the AYA Collection is to create more from less.  A humble, restrained design with a circular approach at its core, the AYA stool is made from solid British ash with softly curving edge for comfort.  Natural character and variation of colour is embraced to minimise waste.  Each piece has been designed and made to be easily disassembled for repair, and finished with natural oils for ease of refurbishment , thus enabling it to have multiple lives.

For complete transparency of impact on people and planet, the AYA collection which includes dining table, high table and conference table,  has Red List Free Declare Labeling and Environmental Product Declarations. A Lifetime Repair Service and a Take Back Scheme are provided to encourage sustainable consumption and whole life thinking.

We have invested in Life Cycle Assessments and independently verified Environmental Product Declarations (EPD’s) to demonstrate the impact of our furniture.

The AYA Conference Table has a negative carbon footprint which means that it stores more carbon than it emits during manufacture, distribution and use. For further information, please download the EPD.
