A Motor-Powered Floating Sauna

Scroll

Following in the Scandinavian tradition of saunas as a place for gathering, goCstudio created wa_sauna to provide a place for friends to share a unique experience on the water.

“We delve into each project with intensity and focus…we endeavor to design and see(k); to discover by questioning.”The sauna is powered by an electric trolling motor, allowing it to quietly explore Seattle’s lakes. Heated by a wood burning stove, the sauna can accommodate up to 6 people. Boaters and kayakers can venture out and tie off to the surrounding deck, before plunging into the lake to cool off. Speaking of the philosophy behind their work, the studio says, “We delve into each project with intensity and focus…we endeavor to design and see(k); to discover by questioning.”
