Title
(EN) REVERSIBLE FURNITURE ASSEMBLY COMPRISING A COMBINATION OF A HINGE SYSTEM AND AT LEAST TWO MODULAR ELEMENTS
(FR) ENSEMBLE MOBILIER REVERSIBLE, COMBINAISON D'UN SYSTEME D'ARTICULATION AVEC AU MOINS DEUX ELEMENTS MODULAIRES
Abstract
(EN)
A reversible furniture assembly comprising a combination of a hinge system and modular elements such that various configurations may be achieved and elements with differing functions may be used. The furniture assembly may be multidirectional (i.e. each assembly may have various uses), multi-purpose (i.e. each assembly may provide specific functions), multidimensional (i.e. each assembly may have a variable size), and multiform (i.e. each assembly may have a particular shape). In the field of furniture, a wide variety of layouts and arrangements may be achieved in work, communication and recreation areas in offices, homes and the like. The assembly comprises a hinge system selectively enabling at least two modular elements to be separated or joined together, as well as modular elements or sets of modular elements that may have a variety of shapes, functions and sizes. The hinge system is characterised in that it has a vertical hinge located between the elements and which may extend from the top to the bottom of the furniture. Similarly, wheels are attached to the bottom of each modular element.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un ensemble mobilier réversible obtenu par la combinaison d'un système d'articulation avec des éléments modulaires. Il permet d'obtenir des configurations différentes et d'intégrer des éléments de fonctions différentes. Cet ensemble mobilier peut être: MULTI-DIRECTIONNEL (chaque ensemble peut avoir divers usages), MULTI-FONCTIONNEL (chaque ensemble peut intégrer des fonctions spécifiques), MULTI-DIMENSIONNEL (chaque ensemble peut avoir une dimension variable), MULTI-FORMEL (chaque ensemble peut s'inscrire dans une forme particulière). On peut notamment dans le domaine du mobilier, obtenir des types d'agencement et d'organisation très différents de lieu de travail, de communication et de détente dans des espaces de bureaux, d'habitations ou autres. On notera, d'une part un système d'articulation pouvant, le cas échéant, permettre le détachement des éléments entre eux et le rattachement d'ensembles d'au moins deux éléments modulaires et d'autre part des éléments ou ensembles d'éléments modulaires pouvant être différents dans leur forme, leur fonction et leur dimension. Le système d'articulation se caractérise par un pivot vertical entre éléments pouvant être réparti sur toute la hauteur du mobilier. Parallèlement, des roulettes seront fixées à la base de chaque élément modulaire.
