With the USM modular furniture system a wide range of furniture objects can be constructed from three basic elements: metal tubes form the framework, chrome plated brass balls act as the connection points and metal or glass panels used provide decoration and cladding. The spectrum of possible configurations ranges from simple shelving constructions such as the popular USM Haller Sideboards, over tables and roll containers all the way up to to modern wardrobes. Originally, the architect Fritz Haller developed the USM furniture in the 1960s as office furniture for the new USM administrative building; however with the first large order, in 1969 for the Rothschild Bank in Paris, series production began. And thus the USM Haller success story that continues to this day. Characteristic of USM Haller shelving is its modular character and minimalist design. And the classically elegant effect created by the different surfaces and the clearly defined structure.
Although Fritz Haller is popularly known for the USM he was first and foremost an architect. Born in Solothurn, Switzerland, in 1924, as the son of an architect, Haller initially completed an apprenticeship as a draftsman before studying architecture. Early in his career Haller spent a year in Rotterdam where he collaborated with Willem van Tijen and Berend Bakema, among the most important representatives of post-war functionalism, and architects who had a major influence on his view of architecture. Haller's main focus was on schools, office buildings and industrial facilities - all of them designed in the spirit of functionalism and with a penchant for systems. Finally, in 1963, by chance, it came to his most famous work, the USM Haller modular furniture system: by chance insofar as his job was actually limited to the planning of new facilities, but for which he then he also designed the interior. The USM furniture system remained Haller's only furniture design a brought him worldwide fame. Fritz Haller died in October 2012 in Switzerland.
The USM Haller wardrobe is the result of a long history: In 1885, Paul Schärer's ancestor Ulrich Schärer founded USM as a metalworking shop and hardware store in the Swiss town of Münsingen near Bern. With the production of window closures and the introduction of general metal and sheet metal processing in the first half of the twentieth century, the business not only expanded but the conditions for the production of the shelving system by Fritz Haller were laid. Since 1969, the furniture produced in series in Münsingen; since 1988, the furniture has been protected by copyright and was classified as a work of applied art in a judicial procedure. With showrooms from Tokyo to New York, USM has made a name for itself worldwide and now focuses exclusively on the manufacture and developm
