Designers from Studio Bigert & Bergström have built a sculptural chamber in the shape of a golden-egg solar sauna, installed at Luossabacken in Kiruna, Sweden’s northernmost town.
The egg is made out of stainless golden mirror sheeting, its multifaceted form breaking up the surroundings that it reflects into a multiplicity of different mirror images. The egg’s interior has been formed out of wood, with the wall panels and floor decking made out of pine and the bench of aspen. In the center of the egg stands the wood-heated, heart-shaped sauna stove made out of iron and stone. The temperature inside the egg varies between 75° and 85° Celsius.
