Collapsibles are based on adjustment or adaptability- a mechanical method by which a thing changes form to save space or for transport. Because we are limited essentialy by cost and square footage in this project, there need to be ways to effectively use the space that we design for.The book “Collapsibles” explores the different methods by which something can collapse by folding, nesting, bellowing like an accordian, hinging, sliding, inflating, etc. Here for example, is a collapsible bench that is cleavarly imbedded into the floor of a deck. This method maximizes space outdoors and minimizes the need for furniture and storage space for them in the winter months, as the furniture is an integral part of the floor.
