one stroke stair - ben
A rough idea I came up based on a flexible structure. Each steps are connected and makes a loop. They will turn from steps into handrails or maybe tables, chairs and so on...
A flexible structure is a structure that prevents collapse by letting their self shake instead of being stiff. The pagoda temple in Japan was the only building that didn't collapse through many earthquakes.
The material needs to be hard and non-deforming. Steel seems to be available. Welding joints would be better from non-deforming compared to bolting. But if there is a material lighter and stiffer, the better it is.
