At AD Home Design Show: Classic Modular Storage Systems by USM Haller

We all have numerous papers and files cluttering up our homes and offices, collecting dust and missing in action when we need them. With spring cleaning on the horizon, it’s time to either throw them out or find them a home since despite the digital age, paper isn’t going away. USM Haller is a leader in design; while USM Haller’s modular storage systems are not by any means new to the market, these sleek, highly functional and timeless systems have not lost their appeal.

Modular Furniture Systems. Manufactured by USM Haller.

“More than 40 years ago, engineer Paul Schärer and architect Fritz Haller collaborated in developing a system of furniture based on modular architectural structures combining elegance and technical perfection. Today USM Haller pieces are considered design classics and units have been acquired for the permanent design collection of The Museum of Modern Art in New York.” Not only were they acquired by MoMA, the esteemed authority on modern architecture, but USM Modular Furniture serves as the museum’s solution to its own storage needs. USM Haller is what lines the floors of MoMA’s offices, not surprisingly, in glossy white. The modular system’s metal frame and panels ensure a durable system with a long-lasting, clean and modern aesthetic. The contents remain dust-free and hidden from view, enabling your space to be clean and clutter-free. More recent to this collection are perforated metal elements lined with sound absorbing fabric and glass doors to transform the shelving into a showcase.






Although USM Haller systems are over 40 years old, they still always manage to seem fresh. USM Haller Modular Furniture is another worthy participant in the AD Home Design Show 2009 in New York City.
