Pre-development of innovative power supply for USM Haller E
USM Haller E literally casts a new light on the iconic USM Haller modular furniture system: with almost invisible integrated lighting. Helbling Technik supported USM in an innovation pre-development project to bring about this innovative enhancement of the design classic. The same Helbling team also subsequently provided support through the phases of development, industrialization and market launch of this new product.
The USM Haller E concept is to light interesting sections and surfaces of the USM Haller modular furniture system in an easy, consistent and discreet way. To realize this idea, USM commissioned Helbling Technik to develop an innovative solution. At the core would be the power supply, which enables lights and power to be almost invisibly integrated in the furniture system. In addition to meeting high aesthetic requirements, the solution had to be robust and durable. It also had to be designed in such a way as to ensure backwards compatibility with the USM modular furniture system.
