DROP AN EGG

An Ode to Swedish Design in the Heart of Paris

Riksbyggen's internationally acclaimed egg shaped sauna, Solar Egg, designed by artists Bigert and Bergstrom, was recently invited to be part of the Swedish Design Moves Paris initiative. For three weeks, starting in late November, Parisians had the chance to experience both Swedish design and sauna traditions.

Riksbyggen's Solar Egg was in Paris as part of Visit Sweden's initiative, Swedish Design Moves Paris. The purpose of the initiative, undertaken in cooperation with the Swedish Institute of Paris, was to draw attention to Swedish design, architecture and fashion in France. The artists behind the 4x5m sauna, made of gold plated stainless steel are the duo Bigert & BergstrÃśm, according to Mathias Sandberg, Marketing and Sales Manager at Riksbyggen.

The exhibition discussed the future of urban planning and Solar Egg is designed to draw attention to the regeneration of the city of Kiruna as an exciting example of social sustainability. Visitors were able to see and experience our long term commitment to the renewal of the city, in the symbol of the Solar egg. The event saw the Solar Egg placed in the courtyard of the Swedish Institute in central Paris.
