Is it possible to place the sideboard on castors?

With the USM system one can develop numerous different furniture types, all starting from same three basic elements: steel tubes form the frame, chrome-plated brass balls joint and secure this skeleton before metal shelves or glass elements clad the structure. The spectrum of possibilities ranges from simple shelf construction, including the USM Haller Sideboard M with one drop-down door, over more complex storage solutions and on to mobile cabinets and the USM Haller table collection. The architect Fritz Haller originally developed the USM furniture as an interior design solution for his new USM office pavilion. That was the beginning of the 1960s. The first major contract, furnishings for the Rothschild Bank in Paris came in 1969 and marks the beginning of the series production: and so USM Haller's global success. Characteristic of the USM Haller sideboards are their modular nature, minimalist design, and their classically elegant appearance, the latter caused by the mix of different gloss surfaces and the systems clearly defined structure.
Designer of the USM furniture system is the Swiss architect Fritz Haller. Born in Solothurn, Switzerland, Fritz Haller was responsible for an impressive roster of numerous buildings, including schools, office buildings and production halls In 1961 Haller was commissioned with the construction of new production and administration building from the company USM: In addition the company's owner Paul Schärer asked if Haller could develop interior furnishings and fittings for the new construction. The result is the USM Haller furniture system. In later Fritz Haller was mainly active as a professor at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Karlsruhe and the University of Stuttgart, receiving in addition in 1993 an honorary doctorate from the University of Dortmund. With the USM shelving system, and the way it revolutionized the office world with its unique functionality and elegance, Haller saw probably his greatest commercial success, success for which he was awarded numerous design awards and which saw his USM Haller system included in numerous prestigious museum collections Fritz Haller died on October 15th 2012 in his native Switzerland.
As with all USM office furniture the USM Haller Sideboard M with one drop-down doors originates at the USM production site in Münsingen, Switzerland. There all parts are manufactured and the metal shelves coated with a special powder coating in one of 14 standard USM colours - or for special commissions, any RAL colour. USM Haller attaches great importance to environmental sustainability in the entire production process and to this end recently opened a new powder coating facility in Münsingen, a facility which offers USM energy savings of some 30% compared to their former process. In addition the high quality of the materials used couple to the systems durability and longevity mean that, in principle, a piece of USM furniture need never be replaced. Thus saving resources and optimising the ecological sustainability.
