(EN)
An article of furniture (1) includes a base (2), a seat frame (12) supported by the base (2), and a back frame (11) attached to the seat frame (12). The back frame (11) includes an upper portion (13) and a lower portion (14). The upper portion (13) is connected to the lower portion (14) by at least one first elastomeric member such that the upper portion (13) is moveable relative to the lower portion (14). The upper portion (13) is moveable from an upright position to at least one reclined position. In some embodiments of the article of furniture (1), the at least one first elastomeric member is a strap composed of a polymeric material, such as, for example, a thermoplastic polyester elastomer or a polymeric material containing at least one elastomer. In some embodiments, the article of furniture (1) may be designed as a chair, a lounge chair, or an office chair.

L'invention concerne un article de mobilier (1) comprenant une base (2), un cadre (12) de siège supporté par la base (2), et un cadre (11) de dossier monté sur le cadre (12) de siège. Le cadre (11) de dossier comprend une partie supérieure (13) et une partie inférieure (14). La partie supérieure (13) est raccordée à la partie inférieure (14) par au moins un premier élément élastomère de sorte que la partie supérieure (13) puisse être déplacée par rapport à la partie inférieure (14). La partie supérieure (13) peut être déplacée d'une position verticale redressée à au moins une position inclinée. Dans certains modes de réalisation de l'article de mobilier (1), ledit au moins un premier élément élastomère est une courroie qui est constituée d'un matériau polymère tel que, par exemple, un élastomère polyester thermoplastique ou un matériau polymère contenant au moins un élastomère. Dans certains modes de réalisation, l'article de mobilier (1) peut être conçu comme une chaise, une chaise longue, ou une chaise de bureau.
