Title (EN) IMPROVEMENTS IN AND RELATING TO A FURNITURE EXTENSION MECHANISM
(FR) AMELIORATIONS APPORTEES A UN MECANISME DE DEPLIAGE POUR UN MEUBLE
Abstract:
(EN) An article of furniture, such as a table, is convertible between a compact usable state and an extended usable state. A movable support surface (4) is extendable from a frame (21, 22). The movable support surface (4) has at least one leg (8) pivotally attached thereto, the leg (8) being ground engageable when the movable support surface (4) is in the extended state and the leg (8) being located out of sight under the frame (21, 22) and under the movable support surface (4) when the movable support surface (4) is in the compact state. Additional support surfaces (1) may be provided so as to be co-planar with the movable support surface (4) when the furniture is extended.
(FR) Un meuble, tel qu'une table, est convertible entre un état utilisable peu encombrant et un état utilisable déplié. Une surface de support amovible (4) peut se déplier à partir d'un cadre (21, 22). Au moins un pied (8) est fixé pour pivoter à la surface de support amovible (4). Ledit pied (8) peut se poser par terre lorsque ladite surface de support (4) est en position dépliée, et est dissimulé sous le cadre (21, 22) et sous ladite surface (4) lorsque cette dernière se trouve en position peu encombrante. On peut apporter des surfaces de support (1) supplémentaires de sorte qu'elles soient coplanaires avec la surface de support amovible (4) lorsque le meuble est déplié.
