Inside is a toasty wood-paneled sauna. It’s heated by a stove in the shape of a human heart. It was installed in Kiruna one of Sweden’s northernmost towns. It gets up to 185 degree F inside. Solar Egg is by artists Lars Bergstrom and Mats Bigert. It’s a place for townspeople to discuss local mining.
