A touch of new objectivity

Quo vadis, furniture design? This year’s Salone del Mobile reveals a few ideas. An analysis in our glance back at the fair.
Our modular USM Privacy Panels is a flexible, space-saving solution for structuring workplaces and defining working areas, creating privacy and, last but not least, optimising indoor acoustics. It is based on the modular matrix of the USM Modular Furniture Haller, underlining the outstanding feature of this classic design.
USM Privacy Panels come in two versions: freestanding room dividers or table-top versions. Both forms are practical, fully configurable and can be altered and extended any time as required. Two half-panels of compacted polyester fleece fold onto the basic frame, a matrix of metal tubes, creating elements whose tubular structures can be slotted together as desired and hence are easily stabilised.
Ever-changing work processes and variable team sizes, combined with open floorplans and modern architecture often using concrete and glass surfaces, present businesses with major challenges, giving their workers an inspiring and modern working environment tailored to meet a number of different needs. USM's Privacy Panels, developed jointly with renowned design studio atelier oï, meet these demands in full.
