The revolutionary, room saving sauna S1 has delivered a brilliant start: To this day the sauna of the future has received seven major awards, for example at the German Design Award, at the iF DESIGN AWARD or at the Red Dot Design Award.
This resounding success had confirmed KLAFS that the company is on the right path if they work immediately on further room saving concepts. The first result of these considerations, the infrared S1, has made its world premiere at the Interbad in Stuttgart.
As with the sauna S1 the key highlight of the infrared cabin S1 is its minimal space requirements, which decreases again. In its fully retracted position this cabin is only 45 centimeters deep (sauna S1: 60 centimeters), even smaller than the average closet. Yet it is a really stylish, high-quality infrared cabin beautifully designed down to the last detail and with much space for – depending on the model – one or two persons.
By pressing a button on the new, extremely compact and slim controls on the front panel it will also extend into a ready-to-use infrared cabin in less than 20 seconds. That's because the infrared cabin S1 will consist, as the sauna S1, of three elements which can be completely fitted into each other. And all that synchronously, thanks to the patent-pending eMove technology.
If it is completely extended, the depth of the room will be 1.15 meters. The flexible connection technology between the individual elements ensures that it easily overcomes any small irregularities in the floor and can put a wide variety of floor coverings to the test with its unique skills.
And this second version of the S1 is also be designed as a completely self-contained, mobile system. In this way, your guest bedroom, workroom or living room stays just the way it was wherever the infrared cabin is located. And the infrared cabin can be moved just like a closet if you move out.
Furthermore, KLAFS uses the so called frame stability construction also for the new infrared version of its revolutionary, room saving concept – an extremely robust wood sandwich wall construction, which significantly reduces the weight compared to the previous construction at KLAFS.
Two sizes of the infrared cabin S1 are available: The model SINGLE with one infrared seat is 1.22 meters wide, the bigger model DOUBLE with two infrared seats is 1.72 meters wide. The seat surface is foldable, so that it is not in the way during the retraction of the cabin – just like a movie theater seat. And the infrared seats are be as supple and comfortable as a movie theater seat, because they have soft padding and are covered with durable textile leather, available in chocolate brown or white. Instead of the drinks holder at the seat, which is obligatory in movie theaters, there is a rotatable mounting for tablets on the wall of the infrared cabin S1.
So the motto will be: Sit down, feel comfortable and enjoy the deep-penetrating warmness. Because many years ago people realised that targeting heat onto your back has a soothing, relaxing and analgesic effect. The rest is done automatically, as usual with KLAFS, thanks to the unique SensoCare technology, which also conforms to the provisions of the RAL quality mark association for infrared cabins. Thanks to this technology you can lean back at ease since SensoCare ensures fully automatic activation of the preselected heating program as soon as you lean on it.
The local effect of infrared heat enables an alleviation of various back problems, like painful cramps and strains, degenerative joint pain and other nonspecific back pain. Soft, medium or intensive: Highly sensitive sensors in the infrared lamp measure the skin temperature during the entire program run and adapt the intensity of the ray individually to the body. So the body is deeply warmed in a particularly soft and gentle way. The protective grille with touch-friendly fluffy surface feel provides additional safety.
When it comes to design variety, the infrared cabin of the future blends in with the KLAFS tradition. Because the infrared S1 is available in five different exterior trims (white, white satin, Swiss pine, walnut and oak) and with doors made of clear safety glass, bronze safety glass or mirrored safety glass. For the interior trims we offer naturally grown, knot-free eastern hemlock or waxed walnut wood as well as the wood of the lively patterned Swiss pine on request. Swiss pine is rumored to have a positive effect on the cardiovascular system. Side-windows are available on on request. This gives the infrared S1 an all-round harmonious appearance – no matter what combination customers choose.
These are the main highlights of the KLAFS infrared cabin S1:
- The world's first infrared cabin that retracts at your fingertips - just like the zoom lens on a
camera (only 45 centimeters deep in the fully retracted state!).
- Fully enclosed, mobile system.
- Two sizes to choose from – SINGLE for one person (width: 1.22 meters) or DOUBLE for two
persons (width: 1.72 meters).
- The synchronous eMove technology extends the S1 at the touch of a button into a ready-
to-use infrared cabin nearly three times as deep in less than 20 seconds.
- Extremely robust wood sandwich wall construction with the frame stability construction, which
significantly reduces the weight compared to the previous construction at KLAFS.
- New infrared control ML 033: extremely compact and slim design, color touch screen,
intuitive menu navigation, high-quality triac power supply for silent operation and extreme
durability, password protection.
These main options are available for the KLAFS infrared cabin S1:
- Colored light BELLASENSA with preset color lighting scenarios and the option of individual
light programs (flush with the ceiling).
- RelaxAudio system: the rear wall of the infrared cabin acts as a loudspeaker membrane, music
can be simply transferred via Bluetooth from your smartphone or tablet.
