The History

USM Haller looks back on more than a hundred years of history, which began as an ironmongery and locksmith´s shop in 1885. Only the cooperation of Paul Schärer, the grandson of the company founder Ulrich Schärer, with the architect Fritz Haller has shaped the current alignment of USM Haller significantly. The true purpose of the architect was to plan the establishment of the newly constructed USM factory buildings and a USM office pavilion. With his work Fritz Haller combined a furniture concept based on steel systems with maximum flexibility and adaptability. Paul Schärer was impressed so deeply by the work of the architect in the USM Office Pavilion in Münsingen that they decided to use the furniture not only for their own use: After a quick agreement the furniture system USM Haller was sold from 1969 onward in serial production.

USM Haller - Then as now unique

A partnership began which success set new standards right from the start and continues to the present day. Thus about 50 years ago a lot of attention and media coverage followed about the metal-based furniture system that can adapt to growing business and private situations. The ingenuity of the system is a simple, so-called USM node, which allows highest flexibility through several holes with screw threads. The potential of the new furniture system was discovered quickly, which also led to the first major contract for USM Haller in 1969. The Rothschild bank placed an order for the furnishing of an office in Paris. Since 1975, USM, which since stands for Ulrich Schärer Münsingen, is known as USM U. Schärer Söhne GmbH or USM Haller.

The Succes Story

The furnishing of the French branch of the Rothschild bank was the start of a success story which continues to this day. In addition to the introduction of new products such as the USM Display or USM Kitos (1989) they also entered into many new markets. Branches were opened (including France and the United States) and showrooms in many cities (Munich, Tokyo, Paris, New York, etc.) to experience the timeless design first hand. As successful as the closure of the 20th century the new millennium started: In 2001, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York made the USM Haller furniture system part of its permanent collection.

In 2015, the company celebrates its 50th anniversary and looks back on a decisive reorientation and continuing success story with the patent registration of the USM node (1965). USM Haller is a brand that excels not only in the furnishing of offices and practices in the public sector, but also sets accents in the private sector is by its simple and clear solutions.
