Title (EN) CHAIRS INCLUDING FLEXIBLE FRAMES
(FR) CHAISES COMPRENANT DES CADRES FLEXIBLES
Abstract:
(EN) A chair (100, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700) includes a support spine (104, 304, 404, 504). A seat assembly (106, 306, 406, 506, 606) is coupled to the support spine (104, 304, 404, 504), and the seat assembly (106, 306, 406, 506, 606) includes a flexible frame (128, 202, 328, 428, 528, 628) being movable relative to the support spine (104, 304, 404, 504). The flexible frame (128, 202, 328, 428, 528, 628) comprises a first frame element, a second frame element coupled to the first frame element at a first comer (140, 144, 214, 218, 340, 344, 444, 544), and a third frame element coupled to the second frame element at a second comer (140, 144, 214, 218, 340, 344, 444, 544). The first corner (140, 144, 214, 218, 340, 344, 440, 444, 540, 544, 644) and the second corner (140, 144, 214, 218, 340, 344, 440, 444, 540, 544, 644) are substantially independently movable relative to the support spine (104, 304, 404, 504). A conformable panel (130, 204) is coupled to the flexible frame (128, 202, 328, 428, 528, 628) and configured to engage an occupant of the chair (100, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700). A resistance assembly (108, 308, 408, 508, 608) couples the support spine (104, 304, 404, 504) to the flexible frame (128, 202, 328, 428, 528, 628). The resistance assembly (108, 308, 408, 508, 608) bears against the flexible frame (128, 202, 328, 428, 528, 628) to facilitate substantially independent movement of the first corner (140, 144, 214, 218, 340, 344, 440, 444, 540, 544, 644) and the second comer (140, 144, 214, 218, 340, 344, 444, 544) relative to the support spine (104, 304, 404, 504).
(FR) La présente invention concerne une chaise (100, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700) qui comprend une colonne de support (104, 304, 404, 504). Un ensemble de siège (106, 306, 406, 506, 606) est raccordé à la colonne de support (104, 304, 404, 504), et l’ensemble de siège (106, 306, 406, 506, 606) comprend un cadre flexible (128, 202, 328, 428, 528, 628) étant mobile par rapport à la colonne de support (104, 304, 404, 504). Le cadre flexible (128, 202, 328, 428, 528, 628) comprend un premier élément de cadre, un deuxième élément de cadre raccordé au premier élément de cadre à un premier coin (140, 144, 214, 218, 340, 344, 444, 544), et un troisième élément de cadre raccordé au deuxième élément de cadre à un deuxième coin (140, 144, 214, 218, 340, 344, 444, 544). Le premier coin (140, 144, 214, 218, 340, 344, 440, 444, 540, 544, 644) et le deuxième coin (140, 144, 214, 218, 340, 344, 440, 444, 540, 544, 644) sont sensiblement mobiles indépendamment par rapport à la colonne de support (104, 304, 404, 504). Un panneau adaptable (130, 204) est raccordé au cadre flexible (128, 202, 328, 428, 528, 628) et configuré pour venir en prise avec un occupant de la chaise (100, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700). Un ensemble de résistance (108, 308, 408, 508, 608) relie la colonne de support (104, 304, 404, 504) au cadre flexible (128, 202, 328, 428, 528, 628). L’ensemble de résistance (108, 308, 408, 508, 608) appuie contre le cadre flexible (128, 202, 328, 428, 528, 628) pour faciliter le mouvement sensiblement indépendant du premier coin (140, 144, 214, 218, 340, 344, 440, 444, 540, 544, 644) et du deuxième coin (140, 144, 214, 218, 340, 344, 444, 544) par rapport à la colonne de support (104, 304, 404, 504).
