Where a Sense of Identity and Values Guide Timelessly Universal Designs

Collections that unite through the values of simplicity, challenge, culture, lightness, rhythm, wonder, time, and identity. This is the mission of Italian design brand MDF Italia since its founding over 30 years ago.

The brand is known for its creation of transversal furniture capable of coming to life while adapting to diverse environments, thanks to universal and timeless design.

Essential, functional and flexible, the newest creations and re-interpreted designs for 2023 have no ambitions to dictate the aesthetics of the surrounding space by their presence, but rather respect the spirit of each environment they inhabit.

MDF Italia: Novelties for 2023

Pentagramma by Pitsou Kedem

Concerning finishes, the fronts of the storage units are available in two new materials. A version with back-painted glass doors in in matching colours with the bookcase structure: white, graphite grey, shadow grey, nickel pearl, and a variant with a special finish presented in partnership with Cimento®: the Veneto-based company has patented a cementitious compound that gives the surfaces of the storage units a solid, textured appearance in contrast with the metal uprights and shelves, further emphasising the counterpoint between solids and voids.

Pentagramma is the new living system designed by Pitsou Kedem for MDF Italia, a design with a strong personality that interprets the concept of the wall system with sophistication by focusing on the value of lightness. It has the soul of a small piece of architecture designed to fit into the domestic space with the unique characteristic of user-friendly modularity.

Surprisingly simple to compose and install, the design develops from an extruded aluminium panel fixed to the wall, on which various elements, open cabinets or shelves are hung. It is precisely its construction that inspired its name: the wall panel on which accessories are applied to create the composition is reminiscent of a pentagram that holds the notes composing the melody. Extremely flexible and versatile, this system offers the possibility of reconfiguring the layout over time. 

Just a few elements are enough to obtain infinite combinations that fulfil different functions and situations of use, fitting seamlessly and with versatility into all residential and contract environments: in fact, it offers a valid storage solution in the living area and office, but also for creating compositions in the sleeping area. The back panel comes in wood veneered aluminium in two finishes, bleached oak and Canaletto walnut and optional integrated LED lighting. 

Rock Table Maxi by Jean-Marie Massaud 

Rock Table is a collection of indoor and outdoor tables with an elegant, fluid silhouette, characterised by a solid central conical base and a thin top that appears to float. The new model, Rock Table Maxi, features a top with an unusual and interesting shape: a rectangle with rounded corners with a physiognomy that fosters a direct relationship among those sitting around the table, facilitating interaction and dialogue.  

The lightened concrete base supports a new, lightweight wooden top in bleached, dark-stained oak and Canaletto walnut, as well as in concrete, stone-chip cement and lacquered finishes.

A style that combines radicality and sensuality, softness and boldness, and complements modern home environments as well as lounges, offices, rooms for entertaining or meeting people, where it leaves its own unique, bold mark.

The Rock Table family also includes the Rock Table Mini: coffee tables with a strong personality, in which the lines of the collection are appropriately reproportioned to create furnishing accessories for the indoor or outdoor living space.

Brand Icons Revisited

Cosy Outdoor by Francesco Rota

The family of the Cosy sofa, designed by Francesco Rota in 2017, continues to expand. The strength of this sofa lies in its modularity, which makes it extremely adaptable to the environment and flexible, not only in terms of configurations but also in terms of use.

Now, in its evolved form, it is also now designed to furnish open-air spaces, both in the residential and contract and hospitality worlds, with upholstery materials suitable for outdoor use. The distinguishing feature of the outdoor proposal is found in the painted 316 stainless steel structures behind the backrest, which both supports and embellishes the seat.

Minima 3.0 by Bruno Fattorini

Designed by MDF Italia founder Bruno Fattorini, Minima is one of the brand’s iconic bestsellers, which received honorable mention at the XVIII edition of the Compasso d’Oro by ADI in 1998. 

Characterised by the minimalist design of the frame made entirely of 100% recyclable aluminium, this year, the system is enhanced by new storage units featuring innovative opening mechanisms that allow the door to reach a length of 120 cm.
