KLAFS sauna S113.09.2016
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
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.
