For more than half a century, this furniture manufacturer has been the number one contact when it comes to finding flexible and customised space solutions. This is because the sustainably produced furniture from USM Haller offers you not just first-class quality and design, but also most importantly tremendous adaptability. But where does the company get its creative and innovative ideas from? Who are the artists behind the label, and which highlights must you absolutely not miss in its broad portfolio of products? You will learn about all of this and more here.
USM Haller's foundations were laid by Ulrich Schärer, who set up the company in Münsingen, Switzerland, in 1885. It still has its headquarters there today. For the first few decades, the company specialised in producing ironware and window locks.
Then came the change in the 1960s: Paul Schärer, the founder's grandson, decided to shift the company's focus. Instead of a purely metalworking firm, he wanted the company to develop into a modern, industrial business. Cooperation with the Swiss architect Fritz Haller gave rise to the design of a new factory and company premises. This is where all of the company's future operations - from production to administration - were to be housed. At the forefront of the building planning process was a modular steel frame construction system that turned out to be pioneering for the company's subsequent furniture production. In order to handle various production processes and potential expansion opportunities, absolute flexibility was essential when the company's buildings were being constructed.
And it is precisely this flexibility that ultimately forms the starting point for the functional designer furniture from USM Haller that we know today. In 1963, the hard work paid off: the modular furniture system, which had by this point become known worldwide, was created from customisable steel modules.
The fact that the successful brand's products enjoyed as much popularity then as they do today lies not just in their universal functionality, however. They also look incredibly stylish. Find out for yourself and take a closer look at the collections and articles from USM Haller at AmbienteDirect:
This table collection impresses not just with its reduced look, but most significantly with its mechanical height adjustability. This feature allows you to enjoy relaxed working while sitting or standing, adapting to every user's requirements whenever it needs to. This makes the models ideal for desk sharing and hot-desking.

If necessary, the handy privacy panels from USM Haller can also be attached to the desks with ease.
This innovative range of office furniture makes your working environment shine. These high-quality products feature a revolutionary lighting technology that does not use cables.

As an unusual extra feature, the models in the USM Haller E range also offer charging options directly on the furniture. This means you can supply mobile devices with power right where they're needed, such as the desk.
