Folding Sauna / A Mobile Sauna

Folding Sauna

The Folding Sauna is an autonomous art project by Studio Elmo Vermijs, devised from the thought of bringing people together in public locations to enjoy a sauna session. By combining a trailer and a tent, the Studio has created the main idea and starting point for this exciting concept.

The Folding Sauna consists exclusively of sustainable materials and is distinguished by her use of materials from the 'normal' sauna.
The sauna is made with felt, residual materials and heated with wood (specially designed wood-burning oven) and therefore can be heated up to 100 degrees Celsius. The Folding Sauna can be udes by six people at the same time.
