Available from November 2023 in a limited-edition capacity, Swiss design brand USM is adding a unique olive-green finish to its modular furniture collection.
First launching in 1965 and designed in partnership with Swiss architect Fritz Haller, the USM Haller modular furniture system is recognised as a design classic across the world with its unique engineering and component-led construction. Thanks to its versatility, the system was officially recognised as a work of applied art in Germany in 1988 and accepted into the Design Collection of New York’s Museum of Modern Art in 2001. While only available in 14 signature colours, with the last shade being added in 1995, the Swiss manufacturer has announced it will be releasing a limited-edition colour across four of its furniture configurations in November 2023.
For lovers of USM’s classic aesthetic, this new colourway is an exciting opportunity to secure an exclusive creation from the brand that won’t be available in its permanent collection. Celebrating its timeless beauty and mid-century charm, the olive-green finish has a nostalgic, retro ambiance that works within a multitude of contemporary interior schemes. Released in time for the upcoming festive season, the unique finish will be available on the Haller sideboard, high credenza, low credenza, and drinks trolley. And, if the beauty alone of this limited release isn’t enough to tempt you, the company is also gifting all customers who invest into a piece from the collection with a set of martini glasses from renowned glass manufacturers Riedel.
With the system made by USM today still compatible with the models from the 1960s, it showcases the forward-thinking design sensibility which went into its original creation – centred on values of circularity and longevity. And, with olive-green being a versatile colour for designers to use within an interior design scheme, it mirrors the adaptability of the system itself. Resulting in a perfectly balanced combination of form and function, this is set to be a popular choice for many who are looking to add practical, sophisticated storage options to the home or office.
From our perspective, investing into storage systems as beautiful and flexible as this not only elevates your home office space without any compromise on style, but it also ensures the system can stay with you for life. Even when moving from home to home, its ageless beauty transcends temporary trends and fashions, and its continuous adaptability means it remains just as relevant for generations to come.
