Mdf Italia Pentagramma Shelves


Designed by Pitsou Kedem

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 day system with sophistication by focusing on the value of lightness.

Surprisingly simple to compose and install, the design develops from an extruded aluminium panel fixed to the wall, on which various elements, containers or shelves are hung.

Its name was inspired by its construction: the wall-mounted back panel to which the accessories are hung to create the composition looks like a music stave or pentagramma in Italian, on which the notes are written to compose a tune.

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 for walls in the living area and office, but also for creating compositions in the sleeping area.

The wall-mounted panel, the load-bearing structure of the whole system, is made of 20 mm thick extruded aluminium and available in various lengths (L152, L202 and L252 cm).The panels can be fixed to the wall using the aluminium bar provided, onto which the hidden panel brackets are hung. It can all be adjusted in three directions: horizontally, vertically and also frontally (sloping away from the wall). The panels are completely covered in veneered wood, available in two finishes: bleached oak and Canaletto walnut. Horizontal wood grain. The panels can be placed side by side horizontally. Whereas vertically there must always be a 5-cm gap between one panel and another to allow for attachment of the shelf or open unit modules.


The shelves are made from a single piece of 8 mm thick extruded aluminium. A really simple intuitive system uses the cross-section of the shelves themselves to hang them on the wall-mounted panels so that the various modules can be arranged and positioned as required. An anchoring system is provided for safety. The various modules are available in a liquid paint finish in matt colours: white, lead black and shadow grey. The shelves are available in only one height but in various lengths (L60, L90 and 1L20 cm). The system is rounded out by a divider (left or right), designed to add movement to possible configurations.
