The classic in a new light: USM Haller E
USM is now integrating light and energy directly into the structure of its USM Haller furniture - completely wirelessly
Whether it is at the reception, on the sales floor, or at home in the living room: the new USM Haller E lighting solution creates the perfect light to highlight different objects, creating atmosphere and orientation. In a spectacular innovation, the Swiss furniture manufacturer has integrated the power supply into the structure of its modular components. Dimmable lighting elements can be discreetly retracted into the metal rods to serve a wide variety of purposes: they can light shelves and display cases from the inside or effectively cover a room wall with light to set the scene – choosing from a daylight glow or a warm white ambiance. Open a drawer for an immediate and clear overview with sensor-controlled interior lights. If mounted at the bases of furniture, the lighting elements can also be used for orientation and guidance.
Light is not the only integral aspect of USM Modular Furniture – mobile devices can also be charged directly from the structure. Just like the light sources, USB chargers can be attached wherever they will be the most useful—plugged into pre-defined recesses, they are fully integrated with the rods and barely visible.
What's revolutionary with USM Haller E is the power supply. There aren't any cables. The structure itself guides the current through the specially developed e-Tubes, e-Balls and
e-Connectors, all of which replace the traditional components. The furniture may be connected to the power supply at any convenient point near the ground through a feed cable leading directly to an USM Haller e-Ball. The power adapter is located underneath the furniture, making the power supply look almost magical since neither cables nor outlets are visible.
The sound of the future
This new integration of power supply and lighting into the furniture's load-bearing structure is not the culmination of a development; it's the starting point for the future. Control via mobile app, touch-sensitive furniture surfaces, programmable lighting scenarios—these are the future-oriented fields of research to which USM Haller will introduce its surprising solutions.
