USM Privacy Panels is the winner of the Design Preis Schweiz award in the Furniture category. The internationally renowned jury, including the well-known designer Jasper Morrison, identified in this product a response to new needs of the workplace, the consistent evolution of the classic USM Haller system and the sustainability. All the nominated products will be on display until 13th December 2015 in the Design Prize Switzerland showroom in Langenthal, Switzerland.
During the award ceremony, Jasper Morrison, president of the international jury, formulated the reasons for their choice:
“USM’s Haller furniture system is a classic which has lost none of its topical relevance since it was developed and launched on the market decades ago. As a response to changes in the office environment -above all, to the need for the visual and acoustic screening of certain areas- the sound proofing USM Privacy Panels represent an intelligent addition to the company’s market range. The sophisticated design of the product is in keeping with the best USM standards. Aesthetically restrained and at the same time visually appealing, the panels remain loyal to the modular idiom which has been characteristic of USM for many years. Sustainability has been served through the use of recycled materials.”
