Celebrating 50 years of modularity with the design icon USM Haller. USM regards this occasion to have a look at the future of design. Modularity is the key to the success of USM Haller product line, and it is precisely this value that USM turns into the key concept of an international culture initiative called Project50.
A master class and exhibition “Rethink the Modular” explore the principles of modularity. How does a young generation of designers and architects work with this challenge, in today’s world where flexibility is so highly valued? And what will the system of the future bring? USM invited two experienced curators to discuss these questions in an intercultural network. Students and alumni from seven major design colleges and renowned lecturers have really been looking into modularity during a period of over 6 months. The projects commenced with an intensive workshop on the country estate Domaine de Boisbuchet in France.
At WantedDesign 2015, they will be presenting to the general public a display part of the USM Rethink the Modular exhibition from the Master Class of Allan Wexler titled “Books and modularity”.
