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. 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 and 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.
