Abstract (en)

The structure is formed by one or several elements of any shape, as long as support points (2) are defined off the floor. The structure (1) is preferably designed in order to support a piece of furniture that may be a seat (4), even a table board, a bookcase, etc., and wherein it will preferably have three support points, two on the ceiling (2) and one on the floor (3) or vice versa, even one on the ceiling, another one on the floor and another one on a wall. The elements that comprise the structure can form a single rigid or flexible body, or else they may be formed by two or more sections connected telescopically to each other and/or jointed in order to permit the angulation between the elements to be varied, as well as the extendibility thereof, in order to raise them at different heights between the ceiling and floor. The structure (1) as a whole has its supports (2) and (3) perfectly stable and therefore the furniture or seat (4) that the structure supports is also stable. <IMAGE>
