USM and Belle have collaborated with Australia’s leading architects and interior designers to create a collection of unique pieces that show the endless possibilities to customise USM.
"What I love about the USM product is its distinctive, timeless style. It’s amazing that the USM furniture system was launched 50 years ago and can work so brilliantly and be configured in endless ways for today’s interiors. I chose to work in monochrome with a bold stripe to create a dramatic storage console that could work as a fabulous anchor piece. The USM system is really versatile and offers endless options for you to Make It Yours!"

"Inspired by the versatility of the USM Modular Furniture range we devised a chic day-to-night storage unit to keep stylish pieces for home and person."

"Without question USM represents the finest in customisable, elegant storage options. I wanted to explore how far we could push the functionality of the range to become a piece of art. I envisioned a sculptural piece that doubled as a coffee table – as visually appealing as it is practical and durable."

"The USM product is an authentic design statement offering huge versatility. Whether it’s a small or a large piece, its ability to be customised offers a unique statement in any interior. I’ve named this piece the ‘U-Bend’. It’s designed to store and frame artwork and collectable objects. The U-Bend has perforated backing panels that add dimension, smoked glass for reflection and a custom velvet seat pad that exudes luxury."

“The USM Modular Furniture range is a brilliantly engineered and refined piece of design. Its exquisite detail, colour palette – unchanged for the past 50 years – and vast range of components provides enormous freedom, no matter what your style. Functionality and beauty, together as one.”

"I love that the USM range is such a chameleon! Our sophisticated bar cart design combines clear glass shelves with classic black and silver, and shows a more dramatic side of USM. It sits beautifully in this luxe, jewel-toned interior."
Sarah Davison, Sarah Davison Interior Design
"USM offers timeless, classic design with a contemporary edge. I created a kitchen island bench configuration with practical deep drawers and storage shelves on both sides, lending energy, drama and contrast to a period-style kitchen. The addition of a reconstituted marble top allows the island to be used as a work and preparation surface."

"USM is a range we have known and loved for many years, having specified it in various configurations within residential interiors. The versatility of USM is of huge appeal, being highly sophisticated and yet able to be applied to a fun and whimsical setting. Designing a piece for a nursery perfectly demonstrates this adaptability. There are no limits in terms of flexibility!"
Alexandra Donohoe, Decus Interiors
"From a system that exudes the greatest qualities of the modernist movement, USM Modular Furniture is strong, versatile and vibrant. Our design explores USM’s sculptural ‘Space Making’ capabilities – part amphitheatre part retail display furniture – USM takes individuality to the next level"
