It looks like it's a simple piece of pegboard with hooks. The first time I saw this idea was on design*sponge. Here's a good DIY feature for this kind of pot rack:

Google for Julia Child's kitchen - she did this years ago. Pegboard and hooks, and she outlined all the pots so she knew exactly which went where.

Make it easy for guests to keep things neat. A well-ordered home will save many headaches down the road. Consider using a label maker to print stickers for cupboards and shelves, or use a Julia Child–inspired pegboard with silhouettes painted on to organize your pots and pans.

Pegboard. Try making your own pegboard pot rack. It's a great DIY project, and you can customize the rack with the exact size, color and hook configuration you desire.

Process: There are a couple of different approaches to installing pegboard. One is to build a simple wood frame from 1-by-2s with one or more interior supports screwed into wall studs, and then anchor the pegboard to the frame. This approach is best if you have an odd size or configuration planned. First, prime and paint your pegboard. Use a small roller for even application; a brush would probably cause drips down the hole interiors. You’ll likely need two coats, and don’t forget to paint the exterior edges. It’s best to choose a paint with a semigloss or gloss finish for durability, as a flat paint finish will quickly show marks and won’t be wipeable. Designer Killy Scheer painted this pegboard a foggy gray to match the urban kitchen’s wall color. Be sure to have the hooks you’re going to use on hand so you can determine the depth needed behind the pegboard to both maneuver the hooks in and out and to have the proper clearance once they’re hanging. This depth measurement will determine the thickness of the wood support you’ll need, if you’re choosing that method. A 1-by-2 would likely be fine, but you may need larger pieces of lumber if your hooks are very large and deep. (Remember, “1-by2” is a nominal measurement; the piece is actually ¾ inch by 1½ inches.)You’ll need to install a wood picture-frame-shaped support on the wall with one or more intermediate supports, depending on how large the pegboard installation is and the weight of the items hanging on it. Typically the frame is inset a few inches from the edge of the pegboard, so the pegboard appears to “float” off the wall. Be aware that you won’t be able to hang anything on the areas of the pegboard that have the wood supports behind. Screw the wood supports into wall studs, then screw your pegboard to the wood supports.

Peg them upPegboards are a wonderfully handy item to have in your kitchen and can be used for any number of things. This board has been used to store some heavy pans and their lids.
