  • Offer Profile
  • More than a century ago, USM was known as a pre-eminent producer of iron works and window fittings. In 1961, Paul Schaerer, grandson of USM founder Ulrich Schaerer, chose to take the company in a new and dramatic direction by transforming the factory from a large, manually-oriented metal production plant into a modern, industrial enterprise.

    Nowadays the Swiss furniture company counts about 400 employees worldwide. Head office and production are still in Münsingen, Switzerland. USM Modular Furniture is also distributed worldwide in more than 50 countries with a network of more than 410 qualified sales partners. USM has established a prominent reputation and international presence with flagship showrooms in Bern, Berlin, Hamburg, Dusseldorf, London, Munich, New York, Paris, Stuttgart and Tokyo offering both cultural spaces and support platforms.

      • The new USM Haller E

      • The classic in a new light

        Light is more than just a pretty shine. It brightens, gives warmth, sharpens our perception. It also inherently changes things. Light and energy are now integral components of USM Modular Furniture Haller, illuminating the path to your creative potential. Put the things you love in a new light!

          • Light helps you find what you’re looking for

          • The design options with USM Haller and its modular light components are as individual as your wardrobe. Whether it outfits a walk-in closet or functions as a standalone piece in your bedroom or shop, USM makes a good impression when it comes to filing, storing and presenting. Fully customized to your personal needs.
          • Light puts things in focus

          • Several independently controlled circuits open unlimited possibilities in lighting design: Gently dimmable from full brightness – for brilliantly orchestrated elegance.
          • Light and energy at day and night

          • The power supply is revolutionary: It is cable-free. Thanks to refinements of the ball, connector and tube, the power flow is integrated into the furniture structure. The light and USB inserts, which are snapped into place flush with the tube, are practically invisible when turned off. What is intriguing is the variety of uses – the light inserts can illuminate the furniture itself or the room it is in, while the practical USB charger powers mobile devices.
          • Light fuels creativity

          • The golden yellow work and charging station boosts the energy in your home office. The barely visible lights embedded in the tubes infuse warm light into your everyday life. USB chargers ensure that all mobile devices are powered 24 hours a day.
          • Light shows true beauty

          • Light creates atmosphere

          • Lamps directed backwards create unique moods, especially on textured surfaces – their reflection bathes favorite pieces in soft light. It's barely perceptible to the eye, but its function is indispensable: easily connectable USB chargers transform the design classic into a charging station for mobile devices.
