Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0774221A2] The invention refers to a piece of furniture, easy to assemble and to couple together with similar ones in selectable row configurations and forming a table or seat top (1) supported by at least two leg devices (2) and detachably connected therewith, said table or seat top (1) having elongated shape, as seen in a top plan view, and part-circularly curved short ends (4) and a subjacent coupling panel (5) protruding beyond the short ends (4) of the table or seat top (1) with a portion (6) having the shape of a sector of a circle, at the point (7) of which is arranged a coupling means (8) with a loop (8a) for being threaded onto a coupling bolt (14) sticking up from a leg device (2) together with corresponding loops (8a) of one or more further similar table or seat tops (1) at the same leg device (2), the angle of the point of the sector (6) of a circle of the coupling panel (5) is restricting the maximum possible number of such table or seat tops (1). In order to obtain a necessary and reliable stability in the joint between two or more tables or seats coupled together at the top of a leg device, the invention suggests that a filling circular disc (15) with a central nut member (16) is adapted to be finally and rigidly screwed uppermost onto the central coupling bolt (14) of said leg device (1). <IMAGE>
