Founded in 1999, Italian furniture manufacturer Domitalia produces Made in Italy products which are distinguished by their clear-cut design and comfort.

Domitalia's belief in innovation and innovative design has opened up the platform for Italian and international designers; resulting in original, avante-garde pieces using groundbreaking materials.
With each season, Domitalia seeks to create new solutions in comfort and living. New materials such as polyurethane and plastic polymers like polycarbonate, methacrylic and styrene-acrylic nitrile are used together with finished wood, stainless steel, aluminum and glass. Material selection and usage are linked by the ideals of protecting the environment and promoting an expansion of eco-friendly manufacturing processes at Domitalia's state-of-the-art facility in S. Giovanni al Natisone, Italy. Recently, Domitalia obtained ISO 14001 environmental certification. All that research and development pays off: Domitalia consistently produces products which achieve excellence without compromise.
Designers Davide Carlesi and Gian Luca Tonelli were born in Italy in the 1970's and followed different paths. They started working in industrial design at the end of the 1990's, participating in exhibits and workshops with works created by companies with a long artisan history. These initial works had a great deal of visibility in Italy and abroad, with reviews in important journals in the field. Since then they have collaborated with various companies, including Snaidero, Midj, Andrea Fontebasso, DOMITALIA, Dinova and Assouline. Their brand AREA44 is the fruit of the common desire to offer a rigorous, thoughtful and passionate design, a search for what is essential, where man always remains at the center of attention.
