Design Sleuth: USM Haller Storage System from Switzerland

October 20, 2015

Spotted in the Milan apartment of Pietro Russo: The modular Haller storage system, with its sleek lines and glossy finish, is our new obsession. Designed by architect Fritz Haller in 1963, the USM Haller System is a line of customizable storage components (shelving, credenzas, file cabinets). Located in Munsingen, Switzerland, the company has been in business since 1885 and has been through several incarnations (it started as a hardware and locksmith shop, then morphed into a window manufacturer, and in 1963 the family segued into modular furniture); it’s now run by the fourth generation of the Schaerer family. For showroom locations, go to USM Haller.
