Title (EN) DECORATION ELEMENT FOR COVERING AND EMBELLISHING FURNITURE
(FR) ELEMENT DE DECORATION POUR L"HABILLAGE ET L"EMBELLISSEMENT OPTIQUE DE MEUBLES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)This element is used for the covering and optical embellishing of surfaces and edges of furniture structures, particularly legs and/or portions of frames and/or bodies of seats or resting furniture, tables, cupboards, shelves, mirrors and similar. The decoration element is comprised substantially of a plurality of more or less long strings, having on the entire length a constant cross section area, made from the core of a tropical creeper. The ligneous, fibrous strings, free of knots, very flexible are arranged most of them adjacent and parallel, and touching substantially each other without any space thus forming a complete optical covering, and they are arranged on the visible surfaces and edges of the structure and are fixed to the latter by fixing means. The element made, for example, from "Palmyra" creepers, is, because of its inner structure of small channels and the absence of knots, substantially perfectly homogeneous on its entire length with respect to its structure and physio-mechanical properties. It is extremely hard, very flexible and may therefore be folded with a relatively small curvature radius, without any risk of breaking as it is the case with known materials. The element presents hardly any risk of splitting or bursting when it is pierced through transversely with respect to the channels, by a pin or a nail, as it is the case with known woods.
(FR)Cet element sert a l"habillage et l"embellissement optique des surfaces et des aretes de structures de meubles, en particulier des pieds et/ou des parties de cadres et/ou du corps de sieges ou de meubles de repos, de tables, d"armoires, d"etageres, de miroirs et analogues. L"element de decoration consiste pour l"essentiel en une multitude de cordes plus ou moins longues, presentant sur toute la longueur une section constante, fabriquees a partir d"un noyau ou du coeur d"une liane vegetale tropicale. Les cordes ligneuses, filamenteuses, sans noeuds, tres flexibles sont disposees pour la plupart adjacentes et paralleles, se touchent pratiquement sans espace en formant un habillage optique complet, sont disposees sur les surfaces et aretes visibles de la structure et sont fixees a ces dernieres par des moyens de fixation. L"element fabrique par exemple a partir de lianes de "Palmyra" est, a cause de sa structure interne en petits canaux et l"absence de noeuds, pratiquement parfaitement homogene sur toute la longueur par rapport a sa structure et ses proprietes physio-mecaniques. Il est extremement dur, tres flexible et se laisse donc plier avec un rayon de courbure relativement petit, sans menacer de se casser, ou d"effectivement se casser comme c"est le cas avec des materiaux connus. L"element presente aussi peu de danger de se fendre ou d"eclater lorsqu"il est perce en travers, par rapport au sens des canaux, par une pointe ou un clou, contrairement a ce qui se passe avec les bois connus.
