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. Made of 69 separate pieces, the contemporary sauna can be disassembled and moved around the city. It stands at 16 feet (5m) tall, and 13 feet (4m) wide, and can be accessed through a set of golden pull-down stairs.
