The purpose of this design is to solve the contemporary issue of ever-shrinking modern living spaces in homes and apartments across the country. Targeting the space saving dweller, the DM_S has the ability to be stored when not in use, and can be quickly erected when needed, due to specially designed and constructed mechanics. It features an innovative, collapsing style that allows it to be one-piece, utilising no extra bolts, pushpins or extra tooling required.
