Design duo Bigert & Bergstrom have unveiled the SOLAR EGG, a public sauna art installation, as part of an urban transformation project by developer Riksbyggen for the city of Kiruna, Sweden. The egg has a shell of gold plated steel that reflects the city and surrounding landscape. Inspired by the Arctic climate where light and darkness changes with the seasons, the designers wanted to create the egg shape to represent rebirth and new opportunties.
