The present invention relates to flexible frames supporting electromagnetic radiation collectors, such as antennas, antenna reflectors, deflectors or solar collectors, for celestial or terrestrial applications, which can be folded to be stored and/or transported. The method for stowing deforms the flexible frame into a stressed configuration. Once released from the stressed configuration the flexible frame restores its initial configuration without any external intervention.
