In their quest to develop a different type of sauna, designers Tarantik & Egger found what they were looking for on the 3,238 high Titlis. Discarded Swiss ski gondolas are now being transformed into sweat cabins. A prime example of upcycling, the art of giving new purpose to old things.
Swiss sauna maker Küng is taking sweating to new heights with 3.5 m² of wood, technology and wellness know-how. The sauna gondolas are weatherproof, mobile, offer a 360° panoramic view thanks to large windows – and easily switch from frost to hot.

Together, Tarantik & Egger design products that are popular both in professional circles and on the market.
Soothingly good and easily transportable: furnished with fine hardwood, the sauna gondola is so easy to transport that wellness lovers will only work up a sweat enjoying it.
The shape of the Swiss ski gondolas is reminiscent of days gone by. Now it offers space for four sauna-goers, and at just 2.5 m2, fits into any garden or terrace.
Visually inspired by nature, every drop of water on the heater enhances the sauna experience. Perfect for a typical Finnish climate and perfectly designed, as evidenced by numerous design awards.
Aspen or alder are central to the sauna gondola. Both types of wood are ideally suited to sauna building and provide the perfect feel-good climate. The (6 kW) electric heater is a powerful designer model. Controlled via Wi-Fi, it offers relaxation at the touch of a button. For more individuality, the exterior can also be painted in any colour of your choice. Already have a gondola and would like to convert it into a sauna? We’ll help you customise it to your requirements.
