Those who know the sauna experience, really appreciate the sauna. Usually, this applies to those who find themselves in really, really cold climates.
Castor Canadensis , a Canadian design collective, has developed the Sauna Box , as they obviously know the sauna experience. This ?Design by Lumberjacks? is based on the utilitarian aspect of shipping containers: utility and portability rolled up in its own convenient modular package. While this is not the first time we?ve seen containers used for their inherent flexibility (see Push Button House  and Cargotecture , to name only two) I?m pretty sure this is the first time we?ve seen one outfitted as a traditional sauna.
Intriguing, isn’t it?
