Title (EN) SEATING ARRANGEMENT AND METHOD OF CONSTRUCTION
(FR) AGENCEMENT DE SIÈGE ET PROCÉDÉ DE CONSTRUCTION
Abstract:
(EN) A seating arrangement includes a base member, and an integrally formed support member coupled to the base member and supporting a seat moveable from an upright position to a reclined position, wherein a first portion of the support member positioned rearwardly of the base member is bendable such that an upper layer of the first portion is put in tension, and wherein a second portion of the support member positioned forwardly of the base member is bendable such that a lower layer of the second portion is put in tension, wherein the upper layer of the first portion and the lower layer of the second portion are reinforced with at least one tensile substrate.
(FR) L'invention concerne un agencement de siège qui comprend un élément de base, et un élément de support formé d'un seul tenant couplé à l'élément de base et supportant un siège mobile d'une position verticale à une position inclinée, une première partie de l'élément de support positionnée vers l'arrière de l'élément de base étant pliable de telle sorte qu'une couche supérieure de la première partie est mise sous tension, et une seconde partie de l'élément de support positionnée vers l'avant de l'élément de base étant pliable de telle sorte qu'une couche inférieure de la seconde partie est mise sous tension, la couche supérieure de la première partie et la couche inférieure de la seconde partie étant renforcées par au moins un substrat de traction.
