Smallest Sauna On Earth

In Latvia, there is a strong sauna tradition. It’s a tradition that Marcis Ziemins discovers is often forgotten in our increasingly urban lifestyle. To illustrate just how insignificant it has become, he created a tiny tabletop version of a sauna. While it may not make you sweat, it introduces people to the basic principles. By adding the smell, sound and ambience of water hitting hot rocks to the interior, he hopes to trigger people to try the real thing. “Classic elements like fire, earth, water and air meet and become one. It is an experience; a wonderful ritual,” he says.
