Traveling to Sweden can be a wonderful VIP experience. For trying something unique, consider a luxury sauna, named the Solar Egg. What is so cool is that it’s a pop-up sauna, so it can be moved from location to location.
The golden Solar Egg is a solar-powered sauna. The new Solar Egg is equipped with solar panels to provide power for lighting. It can accommodate up to eight individuals. Located in the middles of the sauna room, is a stunning heart-shape, wood burning stove. The inside temperature is warmed to between 167°F and 185°F. The structure stands five meters high and four meters wide. The exterior is made from 69 gold-plated stainless-steel panels. As a result, the panels reflect the city and natural surroundings.
A little history behind this story. The Solar Egg was designed to celebrate the beginning of a transformation to the city of Kiruna in Northern Sweden. As the country’s northernmost town, it has long history but unnerving future. The whole city must be relocate due to the ongoing ground sinking beneath it. The cause is due to many years of iron mineral mining. The move will be about two miles to the east.
Mats Bigert and Lars Bergström are a prize-winning, imaginative couple from Sweden. Together, they created the Solar Egg concept. The unique egg shape symbolizes the resurrection and new future for Kiruna. The sauna symbolizes the sun as a catalyst for creativity, care, expectation, and harmony. In addition, it’s a long-standing custom in Sweden.
The mobile sauna was initially located in Riksbyggen (Luossavaara). It then moved to the banks of a mountainside lake in Nikkaluokta in July. It will remain there until the end of September. After that, it is transported to Paris in November. The goal for the sauna is to be moved to various areas and offer varying perspectives.
