  • Publication number: 20210267377
    Abstract: Electrified lounge furniture formed from joined furniture sections. Each furniture section includes a lounge back, a seat and a base. The seat is designed to be selectively pivotable away from the base. When the furniture sections are joined to each other, an electrical wiring assembly extends between the furniture sections to provide electrical power to each of the furniture sections. Each of the furniture sections includes at least one electrical outlet. The electrical wiring assembly is received on the base of each of the furniture sections and is concealed beneath the seat during normal usage. When the user desires access to the electrical wiring assembly, one or more of the seats can pivot away from the base to provide access to the electrical wiring assembly. After the electrical wiring assembly has been accessed, the seat can pivot back into contact with the base where it is securely held to both the base and the lounge back.

  • Patent number: 11076699
    Abstract: A movable tablet for use with a chair is disclosed. The movable tablet is part of a mounting assembly that allows the tablet to be used with different types of chairs. The mounting assembly includes a stationary pivot rod and an outer housing that surrounds the pivot rod. A lower bearing is positioned between the outer housing and a mounting plate secured to a back face of the tablet. A guide hub of the lower bearing travels within a guide track on the mounting plate secured to the tablet to limit the pivoting movement of the tablet. An upper bearing is positioned between the mounting plate and the tablet such that the upper and lower bearings are positioned between metallic elements of the mounting assembly. A friction disc is positioned within the mounting assembly to control and adjust the pivoting movement of the tablet relative to the stationary pivot bar.

  • Patent number: 10508441
    Abstract: A demountable modular wall system for a building having a floor and a ceiling. The system includes panels having a top end and a bottom end with a movement direction defined perpendicularly therebetween. A height adjustment mechanism is positioned between the bottom end of one of the panels and the floor. The height adjustment mechanism has a mounting bracket that sandwiches the bottom end of the one of the panels. The height adjustment mechanism includes a receiving cylinder that threadingly engages with a first member. The first member also threadingly engages with a second member positioned between the first member and the floor. The first member is moveable relative to the receiving cylinder in the movement direction such that rotation of the first member selectively adjusts the height of the one of the panels.

  • Patent number: 10485350
    Abstract: A classroom chair includes a seat and a backrest, where the chair facilitates a wide variety of uses by an occupant. The backrest includes a center section and a pair of armrest sections that extend from the center section. The pair of armrest sections and center section each include a utility surface located in a plane parallel to a seating plane. Each of the armrest sections includes a lower edge positioned above the lowermost portion of the center section, which allows the occupant's legs to be located beneath the armrest sections. In one embodiment, the classroom chair includes a base having four legs. In another embodiment, the base includes two legs joined to a support frame have four stub legs. At least one of the legs extends rearward past the backrest such that the base provides required support for the occupant when the occupant's weight is supported by the backrest.
