Perfect symmetry

Clear lines, puristic-modern styling, large glass surfaces – from the very first look, this designer sauna makes a timelessly elegant, harmonious, top-quality impression.

With this cabin, manufactured according to the individual wishes of the owner, only real experts can spot the many extravagant details that distinguish this sauna even from well-known premium cabins.

The most noticeable detail must be the seating area, which has been fitted exactly into the angular, completely veneered into the lounger and exactly mitred at a 45-degree angle.

The most noticeable detail must be the seating area, which has been fitted exactly into the angular, completely veneered into the lounger and exactly mitred at a 45-degree angle. Only this solution could meet the demands of the owner to have a perfectly balanced symmetry of all angles down to the finest detail. A pleasant side effect: the lounger can be very comfortably reached with just two small steps via the sauna stool and this seating area. And this extravagant solution is a real visual treat as well.

Speaking of visual treats: if you stand a certain distance exactly in front of the corner in the glass front and look at the glass elements, you will be impressed to see that they are exactly the same length: the mission to achieve perfect symmetry down to the millimetre has been a success. This is the fascinating result of the owner's obsession with detail as he paid attention to things that may appear unimportant at first glance.

The sauna is equipped with a sauna heater hidden under the right bench, which distributes heat throughout the room via the so-called BONATHERM wall.

The sauna is equipped with a sauna heater hidden under the right bench, which distributes heat throughout the room via the so-called BONATHERM wall. Because this wall forces the bench away from the rear wall of the sauna by a few centimetres, the owner also had such a wall installed on the other bench – although there was no technical necessity for this. 

The noticeably calm, very harmonious optical effect of this sauna is also due to the special interior design. The owner had decided on the so-called LOUNGE Q concept, in which horizontally arranged panels made of hemlock wood give the interior a particularly high-quality character. It is hardly surprising that the owner also likes to present his sauna to his customers – there couldn't be a more persuasive and attractive argument for having one's own sauna. 

The lounger can be very comfortably reached with just two small steps via the sauna stool and this seating area.

Location and owner

A made-to-measure sauna was installed in the mansard roof of a city mansion in the Rhineland-Palatinate.


Idea & conception

The brief was to create a modern designer sauna with clear styling, a large glass front rounding a corner and a symmetry of all angles perfectly balanced down to the finest detail.
