German term or phrase: Systemmöbel
I'm afraid there's not much context as it's a photo caption:

Grünes Systemmöbel: USM Haller.

Has anyone come across this term before?

Modular Furniture (US and UK); Modular Office Furniture
Explanation:
Checked different web sites. At first I thought it was IKEA-like stuff that you assemble yourself. I still think it mainly is, just more expensive higher quality stuff. I've checked USM Haller, they call it modular furniture. They also use the term furniture systems in their promotional material. I've also gone onto a German site, Systemmoebel Dessau ... and it seems it's more likely to be office furniture than what a person would have in their home.
