USM Modular Furniture presents On Display with De Vera
USM Modular Furniture celebrates the North American launch of its Haller E line of lighted furniture with On Display, an evolving exhibition that explores the relationship between objets d’art and the furniture that display them. The show, presented in collaboration with de Vera, unfolds over the course of six days as USM’s modular Haller E system is reconfigured to illuminate curiosities from Federico de Vera’s storied collection of antique Venetian glass, eighteenth-century figures, and unique jewelry creations.
De Vera, located in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood, was founded by Federico de Vera in San Francisco in 1991, and is known for its eclectic curation of decorative arts and jewelry, ancient to modern.
