Abstract (en)

A furniture (35) is described for accommodating a display (34) and optionally a data entry device (41). The furniture (35) may be in the form of a table, having a recess (40). The display (34) has two positions : a viewing position and a flush position. In the flush position, the back side (39) of the display (34) is flush with the upper surface (36) of the table (35), thereby concealing the display (34) in the recess (40). Optionally, a data entry device (41), having a keyboard (48), may be concealed by the display (34) in its flush position. When the display (34) is in its viewing position, the user can access the data entry device (41). Opening and closing the computer system may be done by an electrical actuator (44). <IMAGE>
