The round section frame is in natural teakwood and is complemented by generously padded cushions that make it extremely comfortable. The Ayana series, which also includes a dining table, low table, sofas and armchairs, is a project with a green soul. The teakwood used for the frames is FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) certified and all the materials that make up the various elements of the series are designed to be separated and disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner at the end of the product’s life cycle.
