USM Haller - contemporary furniture construction system with a history

The history of the USM Haller modular furniture construction system began in 1963 when the then USM boss Paul Schärer commissioned the architect Fritz Haller to design new factory buildings for the company. The completion of the new building was to be followed by an appropriate furnishing concept, for which Haller developed the now legendary furnishing system. And a central component of design history. Based on an amazingly simple construction principle, USM allows for near unlimited modularity and minimalist design par excellence. Panels made of metal or glass are inserted into a frame of chrome plated metal rods and connected via chrome metal balls. On account of its functional design, USM Haller sideboards, USM Haller shelves or USM Haller filing cabinets fit into a wide range of areas and can be reconfigured or expanded at a later date if required.

USM design classics in the living area

The USM Haller furniture system was originally designed for the company's own office space in Münsingen, but today it is no longer only reserved for office areas. Thanks to its almost limitless modularity and reduced design, USM Haller furniture fits harmoniously into any room. In addition to the preconfigured variants, custom-made USM furniture can be planned using the smow USM Configurator and, thanks to the wide range of colours, perfectly matched to the concept of the respective space. So whether for the living room, study or children's room, USM Haller is the perfect furnishing solution for your home.
