MDF Italia Srl is a Milan-based company manufacturing furniture and furnishings, present in 40 countries and in the most important cities in the world.
The company was taken over by Bruno Fattorini in 1992, and immediately started to implement innovative and dynamic business and product strategies.

Bruno Fattorini is the designer and art director around whom the research and the cultural and aesthetic philosophy of the company revolve. In a short lapse of time, an important collection of bookshelves, wall-hung furniture, tables, beds, sofas and complementary items has been created. The decisive choice to orientate developments towards precise life-styles is the leitmotiv of the whole MDF Italia collection, emphasizing its strong identity. The overall result leads to a series of products which can be used in a variety of ways and can combine pleasingly with other materials. The neutrality of aluminium, the strength of wood, the integration with colors and soft and sharp shapes give rise to different solutions of strong impact.

MDF Italia directly manufactures the items it designs by means of external industrial collaborations. Together with the main suppliers, a research and experimentation programme has long been underway, focusing on the use and production of innovative, eco-friendly materials that are compatible with the quality and safety standards required. This particular form of production and collaboration, combining craftsmanship with a production of industrial level, has allowed MDF Italia to attain that qualitative efficiency and production flexibility underlying its business success.
The work done and the research carried out by the designers that collaborate with MDF Italia and by Bruno Fattorini have resulted in innovative technological solutions, in design patents, in patents of industrial innovation and for multiple ornamental designs.

"Evidence" of the creative maturity and intelligent curiosity underlying research activities, and of the aesthetic purity in design, is particularly visible in some of the most successful products.
