Tarantik & Egger are transforming old ski gondolas into incredible electric saunas built to withstand extreme weather conditions. Their four-person Saunagondels are lightweight, easy to transport, quick to set up, and they can heat up to 212 degrees Fahrenheit (100 degrees Celsius) in snowy landscapes.
Tarantik & Egger‘s Saunagondels are made by combining the frames of original Swiss ski gondolas with custom-made, high-quality silver fir wood interiors. Each ski sauna is outfitted with an award-winning 4.5 kW electric heater to generate a cozy indoor atmosphere even in the harshest conditions.
One of the design’s most impressive features is its mobility. Saunagondels are lightweight and can be easily installed just about anywhere. The structures feature modern WiFi controls and offers panoramic views of their surroundings. The interdisciplinary project drew upon electrical engineers, carpenters, metal workers and Germany’s most sustainable brand—outdoor sports fashion company VAUDE.
