Fritz Haller was born in 1924 in Switzerland. He is perhaps the best example of an architect who has successfully transferred their architectural competence into furniture design. Many architects have been successful, but few so successful as Fritz Haller. After qualifying as a draftsman Haller initially gathered experience through short engagements with numerous Swiss architects before travelling to Rotterdam to help work on post-war re-building projects. In 1949 Fritz Haller returned to Solothurn where he began working in his father Bruno’s architecture firm. Defining in Haller’s work – be it his architecture or his furniture – is his use of extendable and repeatable quadratic modular systems; a sort of building block system. This building block furniture now created by USM Haller offers a storage solution for every need.
