Abstract
(EN)
A chair for offices and the like includes at least one armrest that can be folded from a generally upright position to a folded position and visa-versa. The folding mechanism has a thin profile, thereby minimizing the thickness of the armrest and providing an aesthetically pleasing appearance. A cover for the armrest includes an elastic material that stretches to accommodate folding, and also contracts to reduce or eliminate wrinkles. The folding mechanism may bias the armrest to the folded position to overcome forces generated by stretching of the cover when the armrest is folded.
(FR)
L'invention concerne une chaise de bureau et autre du même genre comprenant au moins un accoudoir qui peut être plié d'une position généralement verticale à une position pliée et vice versa. Le mécanisme de pliage présente un profil mince pour de ce fait minimaliser l'épaisseur de l'accoudoir et procurer un aspect esthétiquement agréable. Un revêtement pour l'accoudoir comprend une matière élastique qui s'étire pour ménager le pliage, et qui se contracte également pour réduire ou éliminer les plis. Le mécanisme de pliage peut solliciter l'accoudoir vers la position pliée pour vaincre des forces exercées par l'étirement du revêtement quand l'accoudoir est plié.
