stablished 50 years ago on the principle of "form follows function", the USM furniture system has grown to become a much loved global success.
The company history begins in 1960 when company director Paul Schärer commissioned the architect Fritz Haller to construct a new USM factory
building and central administration. A relatively young architect Fritz Haller was fascinated by modular, flexible constructions, and built
the USM work according to such ideals: and subsequently developed the USM Haller furniture system according to the same principles.
Although originally only developed for USM, the system was launched in the mid 1960s and today remains an incomparably flexible piece
of furniture design which can be found globally in offices, homes and museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, MoMA, in New York.
