Modular Furniture in Uncompromising Quality
USM Haller has stood for modular living and working in uncompromising and innovative quality for over 50 years. In Münsingen, Switzerland, USM furniture systems are manufactured for contemporary living and working environments.
USM originated in 1855 with Ulrich Schärer founding the hardware store and metalworking in the back village of Münsingen near Bern. In 1961, Paul Schärer Junior commissioned the architect Fritz Haller for the design of new production and administration buildings.
Furniture Systems with Patented USM Ball Joint
In collaboration with Haller, a furniture construction system for the company's office complex was also built at that time. What began as a modular architecture design for their own needs, soon became the central product of the company. USM Haller furniture is based on standardised components from which countless solutions can be constructed.
The USM joint is the heart of the collection: A small ball that acts as a flexible joint to connect the rigid steel rods. In the mid 60's, the USM joint was patented and immediately went into production. USM Haller’s first major order was to furnish the Bank Rothschild in Paris.
Long-Lasting Furniture Classics
Thanks to the modular furniture by USM Haller, rooms can be customised according to every taste and need and be adapted to personal life situations. In doing so, USM Haller's respectful approach to the environment is particularly important. The high-quality of the materials and the flexibility of the modular products promise durability. The longer a product can be used, the more environmentally-friendly it is.
"Created with high quality materials, the Swiss precision, versatile functionalities, a timeless design and a wide range of colours, the USM furniture are much more than an actual solution: they are investments oriented to the future"
The modular systems can be found in renowned museums such as the MoMA in New York.
