Thanks for the try. I've also tried columns. But the floating mechanism and columns/tables doesn't cooperate very well...

Maybe there is a way to increment the figure counter by hand? And to add a label for the added figurenumber? Then I can make the [2*1]-combination appear as two independent figures.

the only problem then is the caption of the combination. I don't want that caption, and I don't want the space that is occupied by that caption.
