The Ayana Dining Table, designed by Naoto Fuka­sawa for B&B Italia Outdoor, is a stun­ning example of a warm mini­mal­ist outdoor design. Crafted from natural teak, the support­ing struc­ture is both light­weight and highly durable, capable of with­stand­ing all weather condi­tions while provid­ing sturdy support for the heavy serpen­tine stone top.

Every element of the Ayana collec­tion has been thought­fully designed to be enjoyed from every angle, with elegant inter­sec­tions and propor­tions creat­ing a cohe­sive and visu­ally stun­ning aesthetic. With its gener­ous size, the Ayana Dining Table is perfect for creat­ing a convivial atmos­phere in outdoor settings, encour­ag­ing gath­er­ings and conversation.

The Ayana collec­tion is not only beau­ti­ful but also has a green soul. The teak used to make the struc­tures is FSC-certi­fied (Forest Stew­ard­ship Council) and thus sourced sustain­ably. Addi­tion­ally, all mate­ri­als that make up the various elements of the series can be sepa­rated and disposed of in an envi­ron­men­tally respon­si­ble way at the end of the produc­t’s life cycle. Choose the Ayana Dining Table for a stun­ning addi­tion to your outdoor space that you can feel good about.

Naoto Fukasawa


Japanese industrial design icon Naoto Fukasawa is known for work that is simultaneously sculptural and functional. From CD players, cell phones, and electrical appliances, to furniture for sitting, sleeping and eating, Fukasawa’s work is always museum-quality. In fact, a wall-mounted CD player he designed for Muji is part of the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection. Inspired by the outline and the shape of a volume or item, he looks for inspiration in the subconscious thoughts that humans have about objects.

Fukasawa has immersed himself in the electronics world since the beginning of his career, at Seiko Epson in Japan, where he designed products such as wrist TVs and mini printers. He also spent time in the U.S. working with companies in Silicon Valley, and was involved in the development of a design concept for Apple. He continued to dream up technological products when he returned to Japan, while at the same time taking on impressive furniture collaborations that quickly made him a household name in the industry. As a furniture designer, he has collaborated on award-winning pieces for B&B Italia, Driade, Magis, Artemide, Danese, Boffi, and more. Works like the Piccola Papilio lounge for B&B Italia reveal Fukasawa’s energetic approach to minimalism. The chair’s enveloping form is utterly simplistic and captivatingly artful at the same time.
