Not only the customers and the journalists, but also the experts are stoked from the sauna of the future: The jury of the renowned „Plus X Award“, which is called by experts the world’s largest innovation award for technology, sports and lifestyle, has awarded the world premiere from KLAFS in five categories for its clear additional benefits: Innovation, High Quality, Design, Ease of Use and Functionality. In addition the jury bestow the title "Best product 2015/2016" in its product category to the S1.


KLAFS, the market leader for sauna, pool and spa, thus reinforcing once again its reputation to be
the innovator in the industry which sets new trends in sauna and spa again and again. The revolutionary, room-saving sauna S1 is the best example: It is the world’s first sauna to retract at the touch of a button – just like a zoom lens on a camera. In its fully retracted position the S1 is a mere 60 centimeters deep, just like the average closet. Yet the S1 is a really stylish, high-quality, beautifully designed sauna down to the last detail and with room for the whole family.

By pressing a button on the new, extremely compact and slim controls on the front panel, the S1extends into a ready-to-use sauna in just 20 seconds and is nearly three times as deep. That's because it consists of three elements which can be completely fitted into each other. And all that virtually silently and synchronously, thanks to the patent-pending eMove technology. The flexible
connection technology between the individual elements also ensures that the S1 easily overcomes any small irregularities in the floor and can put a wide variety of floor coverings to the test with its unique skills.

The new KLAFS S1 is also 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 sauna is
located. And the sauna can be moved just like a closet if you move out.

When it comes to design variety, the sauna of the future blends in with the KLAFS tradition. Because the S1 is available in three sizes (small, medium and large), with five different exterior
trims (white, white satin, Swiss pine, walnut and oak) and four different front panels (fully glazed
with clear safety glass, fully glazed with bronze safety glass or fully glazed with mirrored safety
glass, closed with a side window). 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. The side panels, front and ceiling are all equipped with the same surfaces and are
available on request with side windows.

With its international and independent jury from 27 branches, 23 competent strategic partners
and more than 600 participating international brands the „Plus X Award“, which is in its 12th
year 2015, today is the world’s largest innovation award for technology, sports and lifestyle
according to its organizers. The main criteria for an award are newly developed and innovative
technologies, exceptional design and intelligent and simple operating concepts. Criteria such as
good ergonomic and ecological product features, an advanced feature set as well as the use of
high quality materials and their processing lead to a sustainable product with a long life and thus
are also worthy of recognition.
