A collapsible structure is provided that includes at least a first panel, a second panel and a third panel. Each panel includes a flexible loop member that is adapted to assume an expanded position and a collapsed position, and a fabric for substantially covering the loop member. The loop members of the first and second panels overlap each other at a first overlapping point along the upper edges of the loop members of the first and second panels, and at a second overlapping point along the bottom edges of the loop members of the first and second panels, ...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A structure comprising:(a) a first panel, a second panel and a third panel, wherein each of the panels includes:a flexible loop member defining a closed loop and having a first edge and an opposing second edge, the loop member adapted to assume an expanded position and a collapsed position;a fabric covering at least a portion of the loop member, with the loop member substantially supporting the fabric so that the fabric assumes the particular configuration of the loop member when in the expanded position of the loop member; an...
