KLAFS sauna S1

Forget everything you already know about saunas – except the relaxing and

healthy experience. Now there's the new S1 from KLAFS. The world's first sauna

to retract at the touch of a button – just like a zoom lens on a camera.

 

Schwaebisch Hall, September 2016. Anyone who's ever dreamed of having their own

private sauna in order to using a sauna on a regular basis to build up effective

barriers against various stressors has previously needed sufficient space for

it. And that space could then no longer be used for other purposes once the

sauna was installed.

 

Until now. Because the designers from KLAFS, the market leader in the sauna,

pool and spa sector and a driving force in the industry, have now developed a

whole new, radically different sauna design: the S1, the sauna of the future.

 

The key highlight of this sauna is its minimal space requirements. 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 S1 extends 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 absolutely 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 reclining bench of the S1 can be easily pulled forward by ten centimeters

after the cabin has been extended and thus offers an additional plus in comfort.

On request, the S1 is also available with a folding bench for lying comfortably

in pairs - the reclining space can be doubled very quickly by simply unfolding.

 

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.

 

The frame stability construction is also brand new in an extremely robust wood

sandwich wall construction, which is 40 percent lighter than that of a

conventional sauna. Nevertheless, this design does everything effortlessly, as

extensive testing has demonstrated, even high temperatures and humidity. The

sauna air is just as pleasant as in the previous designs too.

 

And this is ensured by the generously sized air channel system too, which is

integrated in the back wall as standard. This guarantees optimal heat

circulation and a healthy thermal environment in the sauna. A system which

supports the healthy effects of using your sauna on a regular basis: It

increases your cardiovascular fitness, strengthens your immune system and

improves the capacity of the human body to adapt to different temperatures.

 

Not only when it comes to health, but also 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. This gives the sauna S1

an all-round harmonious appearance - no matter what combination customers

choose.

 

Truly a revolution for the sauna market, which also excites the experts: 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.
