Giant structures at the Salone

MAY/2018

The UNStudio team was in charge of designing the spectacular stand which the Swiss modular systems firm USM presented at the most prestigious interior design fair in the world: the Salone del Mobile.


In building the eye-catching structure, which reproduced the largest USM piece of furniture ever built, they used 1,015 USM Haller panels, 5,008 USM balls, 13,318 USM tubes and 8.9 tonnes of material, requiring 1,974 man hours to build it in situ. As proof of USM’s firm commitment to sustainability, once the Milan fair closed all the pieces of the stand were then reutilised in other projects.


The project won two Frame Milan Awards (in the categories of “Best Use of Material” and “Trade-Fair Stand of the Year”), the prizes awarded each year by Frame magazine to the trade fair’s most innovative an inspirational stands.
