The golden egg sauna

This design work is based on an idea of the Swedish study Bigert & Bergström. Currently, the opera is in Luossabacken in Kiruna, Sweden’s most northern city in the whole country.

For the inhabitants of Sweden, the sauna is not only a place of physical well-being and body care but also a meeting point in which to spend some time discussing and sharing their thoughts and ideas. The solar egg resumes this principle, in fact it was made available to the inhabitants of the city and any tourists who visit it.

The work was built with reflective stainless steel plates that scatter light in a variety of different mirror images. The sun, the color of the sky, the clouds or the snow greatly affect the color and shape of the light that invests the work. The idea of its creators in this sense is to make people think about the importance of climate change and the issue of pollution.

The inside of the egg was built in wood, with wall panels and a pine wood finish, while the inside bench made in aspen. At the center of the egg is the stove, built in stone, iron and wood, shaped like a heart. Inside, the temperature may range between 75 ° and 85 ° Celsius.
