Given how cool and space-efficient Murphy beds are, it’s a wonder there aren’t more home furnishings that fold up and disappear flat against the wall. Hofman Dujardin Architects [1] has come up with a new one, though it’s not so much space-saving as it is space-making.


The Bloomframe [2] is a window that folds out of an exterior wall to become a balcony. Created with urban density in mind, the Bloomframe is said to offer “small freedom in the city.” As Bright [3] so aptly put it: Go, go, Gadget, Balcony!
