Abstract:
The trim element (20) comprises a supporting element (22) having a main surface (34) extending between two opposite edges (36, 38), a lining layer (24) covering the main surface (34) and the edges (36, 38) of the supporting layer, and a skin (26) surrounding the lining layer (24). At least one of said edges (36, 38) comprises a reinforcing element (28) movably mounted relative to the supporting element (22) between a retracted position and a deployed position wherein at least one portion (46) of the reinforcing element (28) projects from the main surface (34) in such a way as to reduce the length of the portion (45) of the reinforcing element (28) extending in relation to the main surface (34), said projecting portion (46) being surrounded by the lining layer (24).
