The sauna Solar Egg was created by Riksbyggen together with artistic duo Birgert & Bergström and installed in Kiruna. Since then the sauna has become a global success and taken on a European tour. Now the Egg returns home to Swedish Lapland. To Gällivare.
Riksbyggen’s sauna Solar Egg has been on a tour and become globally famous. The sauna was created by the artists Bigert & Bergström and exhibited for the first time in spring-winter 2017 at Luossavara ski resort in Kiruna. The inspiration to the Sun Egg’s shape and function comes from Malmfälten, filled with contrasts and dynamism. After Kiruna the Egg went on to Björkliden and had a splendid view of the midnight sun and the mountain landscape in summer. During autumn 2017 it was taken apart and transported to Paris and an exhibition at the Swedish Institute. The Solar Egg has spent the last months visiting the Swedish capital, at Artipelag, but now the clever sauna is on its way home to Swedish Lapland and Gällivare. During the trip abroad the sauna became a global success.
