Much like a sculptor painstakingly and studiously removing the superfluous to reveal the essential, MDF Italia practices design by subtraction: “The removal of what is not essential, and the intense search for simplicity.” Revered across the globe for their light touch—their minimalist’s approach to functionality and aesthetics—the company offers a vast collection of furnishings for residential and contract venues, including sofas, chaises lounges, armchairs, multi-purpose chars, tables, and beds.
Known for a deft synthesis between a contemporary and modern aesthetic, MDF Italia is consistently on the leading edge of design. The company’s reputation for producing high quality and stylistically bold furnishings results, in large measure, from an active recruitment of leading designers. In recent years, MDF Italia has enjoyed the talents of Jean-Marie Massaud, Ennio Arosio, and Piergiorgio Cazzaniga, among many others.
A perennial participant in A&D’s principal exhibitions—including Salone del Mobile, NeoCon, and IMM Cologne—recent designs by MDF Italia have received multiple industry awards: the Bend Chair by Jehs+Laub (Interior Innovation Award, 2012), the Yale Sofa by J.M. Massaud (ADI Compasso d'Oro, 2011), and the Tense Table by P&M Cazzaniga (ADI Design Index, 2010). These widespread accolades demonstrate that MDF Italia has consistently met the mandate to produce simple yet aesthetically compelling furnishings, pieces exhibiting, in equal measure, high function and high art— “Rigour, method, and cultural simplicity together with the continuous and intelligent strive for updating have always characterized the creativity of MDF Italia.”
