MDF Italia at One Parkade in Bonifacio High Street officially launched last week. MDF Italia is exclusively distributed by Suyen Corporation, specifically the Dimensione group. As with the launch of his other premium design brand, Ben Chan asked me to host MDF Italia. Huge honour.
MDF Italia has been in the furniture industry for over 20 years. Its pieces are timeless and iconic. They are so simple, in a good way. They are devoid of any embellishment but focused on pushing technology beyond. Lots of innovation in the materials and technique.
