Abstract (en)

[origin: CA2688529A1] The invention relates to a vertically adjustable pillar, in particular fo r desks. The object of the invention is to provide optimized travel of the p illars and at the same time to achieve a visually pleasing small cross secti on compared to the overall height. The travel of the pillars should be such that short people can work at the table when sitting, while a table height w hich is sufficient for tall people to work in a standing position can also b e reached. To this end, a vertically adjustable pillar is provided which has an inner pillar (1), a central pillar (2) with a lower face (2a), an outer pillar (3) with a lower face (3a), a travel mechanism (21) with two transmis sion ratios, and a linear drive (22), which are adapted in order to effect v ertical adjustment by means of the pillars sliding into and out of one anoth er, wherein the linear drive (22) is dimensioned and arranged such that it p rojects beyond the lower face (3a) of the outer pillar (3) in the inserted s tate.
