IoA Healthcare Furniture

IoA is a family owned company, and the Delmestri family has been manufacturing furniture for three generations. The company was founded in Udine, Northern Italy in 1933, and was known as a leading manufacturer of contemporary seating designs. In 1978, Dario Delmestri moved the company to the United States, beginning the manufacturing of its collection in a new, 70,000 sq.ft. vertically integrated facility in Thomasville, NC. Most notable of among the IoA products then was the collection of pioneer furniture designer, Eileen Gray. Having discovered these hidden gems of contemporary design during his travels through Europe, Dario set forth to accurately reproduce them, under license from the Eileen Gray estate, and premiered the collection at Museums around the country, including MOMA in New York.
