Rather than follow fashion trends, USM’s Modular Furniture for airports has cultivated its own sense of rigour and sustainability, two inherent values dear to its practice. The USM system comprises of a chrome-plated brass ball joint, chromed steel tubes which connect to the ball forming a stable framework and powder coated metal panels mounted between the tubes. The basic construction allows for infinte design possibiliies and since its launch as a brand in 1965 more and more clients, architects and designers are seduced by its basic aesthetic and ultra functionality.

Fifty years on, USM’s Modular Furniture for airports has become a design classic.The product continues to perfect itself with the strength of its 100% Swiss manufacturing processes. It remains to inspire new interiors around the world.

In 2011 USM entered into a business cooperation to offer airports the combination of a product that fulfills the diversified demand of the user with the vision of planners and architects. USM Airportsystems has meanwhile completed projects for more than 15 airports and national airport authorities world-wide.
