USM modular furniture systems – timeless design and premium quality
For over 50 years, the USM Haller modular furniture system has been synonymous worldwide with timeless, sustainable design for workspaces and living areas. The gleaming metal ball connector has maximised all potential uses of this long-lasting design classic, offering boundless creativity and individuality.
USM Modular Furniture Haller is part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and is recognised as a work of applied art protected by copyright – the world’s best patent protection.
The USM U. Schärer Söhne AG family business was founded in Münsingen near Bern in 1885 as an ironmongery and metalworking company. As it entered its third generation in the early 1960s, it took the crucial step that would make it a modern, design-orientated industrial company. Originally developed by engineer Paul Schärer and Swiss architect Fritz Haller to meet personal needs, the modular furniture system was first used in modern offices but has long since established itself in many other areas of life. More product lines have been added over the decades – including the USM Haller Table, the USM Kitos table construction system and USM Privacy Panels – that are compatible with one another and have themselves become coveted Swiss exports.
“Made in Switzerland” is both a promise and a commitment, denoting precision, quality and reliability, premium base materials, meticulous craftsmanship and absolute dedication. USM is sold in more than 50 countries through a network of over 700 qualified partners. Showrooms in Bern, Hamburg, London, Munich, New York, Paris and Tokyo provide a platform for USM products and a vibrant cultural space that boosts the international presence of the USM brand.
