Minima 3.0: an ever-changing icon


In 1998, Bruno Fattorini, founder of MDF Italia, designed Minima, a bookcase system consisting of three key elements - shelf, upright, storage unit, honourable mention at the 18th Compasso d'Oro.

Characterised by the essentiality and lightness of its lines, Minima has evolved over the decades into a versatile, transversal furnishing system for the residential and contract environments.
Originally conceived as a ground-resting or hanging bookcase, today Minima 3.0 is a multifunctional system capable of combining several features, including Room Divider, a room dividing bookcase to separate rooms elegantly, Sketch, a collection of wall-mounted bookcases offering maximum freedom of expression in all areas of the home, and Sideboard, a storage unit available in different configurations and heights.

The open storage units, with flap or drawers, that complete the system are available in two versions: simply placed inside the structure and easily repositionable, or in the new version with a hidden opening mechanism, aluminium door profile and new finishes for the fronts in back-painted glass or Cimento®. The finish, presented in partnership with the Veneto-based company, is the result of manual work, where craftsmanship and attention to detail are the key elements. A cementitious compound is applied to the surface of the containers, giving them a solid, textured appearance in contrast with the metal uprights and shelves of the bookcase, further emphasising the counterpoint between solids and voids.

Thanks to its modularity and customisation possibilities, Minima 3.0 fits into the most varied spaces, offering itself not only as a bookcase and storage solution, but as a contemporary furnishing element in the residential and office spheres.
Ground-resting, hanging or room-divider, Minima 3.0 and its declinations serve the most diverse needs in the home and contract sectors.
