Sauna Box

The Sauna Box is “dialectical investigation of the common shipping container and traditional sauna.”. If you live in the Canadian outback you understand, either way, it looks pretty good. From Castor Canadensis, “a collective of craftsmen and artists with eclectic backgrounds – Kelvin Goddard (designer, metal smith), Brian Richer (stonecarver), and Ryan Taylor (photographer, designer). The Sauna Box is water tight and can be transported to any location, needs minimum site preparation, has a wood fired stove and is electrically powered by solar panels. Each Box is site specific and custom built. The outer skin is constructed of corten steel, a material that withstands saltwater and used as sculptural material. This utilitarian, sculptural aesthetic is continued on the inside with hand made objects such as carved stone stools, stone sink, custom wood and metal work.”. As their website is “in progress”, you can contact Brian Richer at +1 416 994 1232.
