Retractable sauna heats up London
If you’ve always wanted a sauna but didn’t think you had the space for it, a visit to this year’s Ideal Home Show might make you think again. Step inside the KLAFS ‘S1’, the world’s first retractable sauna that folds away to the size of a standard wardrobe.
At the touch of a button the KLAFS S1 sauna extends from its collapsed 60cm to a comfortable 1.6m sauna in just 20 seconds, with everything you would expect for a relaxing sauna session.
“People living in cities are often restricted for living space, but many long to enrich their lives with a home sauna,” says Andy Carr from Guncast, the selected UK partner for KLAFS products. “No bigger than an average wardrobe, the S1 sauna is perfect for apartments on the Thames, or small city homes.”
The S1 sauna is a completely self-contained unit featuring benches, compact heater, flush-mounted LED lights, loudspeakers that connect to a smartphone via bluetooth and a built-in air channel system. And because it is compatible with a variety of floor types, this award-winning sauna is a great choice for any room, from bathrooms to guest rooms.
There are four sizes and a multitude of design variants, with endless options for different housing arrangements and styles. What’s more, if you are moving home, you can take the KLAFS S1 sauna with you.
“The smallest model is 1.72 metres wide and spacious enough for two people,” says Andy explaining there are also infrared and manual options. “For the first time we’ll be at the Ideal Home Show with a working S1 sauna for people to try for themselves.”
In association with KLAFS, the S1 is available from Guncast, one of the UKs most well-known luxury pool builders who will be on stand H470 at the Ideal Home Show 2019, 22 March to 7 April at Olympia, London. Other KLAFS products can also be seen on the stand including the EASY sauna, which is designed for quick and easy DIY assembly without professional help.
KLAFS is a German business and the global market leader for the design of hydrothermal solutions, including snow cabins, ice fountains, steam baths, mud baths, hamams, caldariums, SANARIUM®, saunas and more.
