Design Story

The Design

In 1961 the Swiss architect Fritz Haller built new production and administrative buildings for the company USM, and two years later developed the complimenting office furniture for the administrative buildings: the USM furniture system was born. Although originally only intended for internal use, USM Haller's system quickly gained popularity beyond the company's boundaries and in 1969 the first order was placed by Rothschild Bank in Paris: from then on the USM Haller sideboards were produced in series. The shelf system is designed in such a way that they always remain responsive and flexible, thus, USM Haller units can be adapted to the changing requirements and appropriately rebuilt. The configurable USM Highboard XL has nine compartments and can be equipped with drop-down and/or extension doors. With a depth of 35 cm, the compartments are ideal for storing folders.

Production

The production of USM Haller furniture occurs at the company's headquarters in Münsingen, Switzerland. The metal tubes for the furniture structure, the chromium plated connectors and the metal or glass cladding are manufactured there. The metal shelves are lacquered in 14 colours using a special environmentally compatible powder coating process. Orders for the German market are constructed at the company's plant in Bühl, or directly at the dealer or end customer. Ecological sustainability is not only an important part of USM Haller's production process, but is also integral in the product: the system is crafted from high-quality, highly durable materials and can also be adapted to the changing requirements and does not have to be replaced when your situation changes, both of which extend the life-cycle of the system and thus save resources.

Assembling a USM unit

Manufacturer

The company USM was founded in 1885 as an iron processing and locksmith business by Ulrich Schärer in the Swiss town of Münsingen, near Bern. In the 1920s the company started producing window fixtures followed by the post-war introduction of general metal and sheet metal processing. W
