I've recently been in touch with the nice chaps at Obelisque Design.
For those of you who were at the last Synthfest they were the guys with those stunning extruded aluminium desktop stands for small gear.
I was asking about the wall-mounted synth solutions I heard about while chatting to their sales director Glenn.
It seems that Synthfest was a roaring success for them and they've been rushed off their feet since, so much so that the wall-mounted designs are not finished yet but are expected to be ready roundabout the end of next month all being well.
My understanding is that the wall mounts will consist of vertical rails you attach to a (solid masonry) wall and which accomodate holding arms that can be positioned as required and provide variable tilt. There was also talk of the rails having channels for routing hidden cables (power and audio) through. If it's anything like their destop stands it should look beautiful.
I sent them a list of dimensions and weights for the initial two installations I want to do (which between them will accomodate 5 synths; the heaviest being 15kg), and the good news is that they reckon it's quite doable. Should that pan out as I hope, I'll be looking to add more for a further 8 or so (some of which are heavier).
Definitely worth keeping an eye on if you're as interested as I am in that kind of solution.

It's also great to hear that a newish company like Obelisque Design that responds to user suggestions is already rushed off its feet - there IS some justice in the world! 8-)
