Founded in Münsingen, Switzerland, in 1855 by Ulrich Schärer. USM was initially known as a producer of ironmongery utensils and clenches for high quality windows.
In 1961, Paul Schärer, grandson of the founder, decided to reorient the company’s activity and converted USM in a modern industrial company. As a consequence, he hired architect Fritz Haller to design a new building for the firm.
Haller designed a building based on his system Mini/midi/Maxi. A principle of construction with a steel shell for buildings of different sizes. The unique modular architecture inspired Haller and Schärer o create flexible solutions for storage following the same system. In 1963 the modular system became pioneer and acquired international prestige with the name of USM Haller.
Nowadays, UM has more than 400 employees around the world. The headquarters of the company and its production are still in Münsingen. USM is distributed around more than 50 countries through a net of more than 400 qualified dealers.
The shape follows the function. The goal of Schärer and Haller of combining functionality and aesthetics in timeless solutions for home and office, led to modular concepts that captured the essence of the time.
The USM Haller Systems are included in the permanent collection of MoMA in NYC since 2001.
The Fundació Mies van der Rohe Barcelona was set up in 1983 by the Barcelona City Hall with the initial purpose of reconstructing the German Pavilion, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich for the 1929 Barcelona International Exhibition.
Besides conserving and disseminating knowledge about the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion, the Fundació today also fosters debate on and awareness of themes related to contemporary architecture and urban planning, as well as encouraging studies on the work of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and on the Modern Movement. In accordance with these objectives, the Fundació organizes awards, congresses, conferences, exhibitions, workshops and installations.
