  • Summary

    This will be the third year we are bringing the Twisted Spa and our Transparent Sauna to Borderland. Last year it was 24/7 activity but we had ONE BIG PROBLEM, it was not hot enough. With guidance from Finnish Sauna Lovers we will bring A BIG HEATER!

    Full description of the concept

    Twisted Spa is a transparent Sauna with the shape of a truncated octagon. It is made of poly-carbon-plastic built on a wooden platform, heated by a wood burning stove. Twisted Spa was 2017 up and running almost all days and nights for people to heat up before and after they went for a swim in the ocean. The space is enough for 10 people standing in the sauna at the same time.

    This year we will bring a bigger and hotter heater!
    Twisted Spa will co-locate together with hot-tubs at the beach to co-create a nice area.
    We will engage people to do sauna rituals and other happenings.
    Twisted Spa is up for anyone to heat up with wood and fire.

    About the group/Artist

    Mathias Gullbrandson is lead in the team. He has done dreams and art projects at Borderland since 2010.

    How can other burners co-create with you?

    YES! Who else that want can go in to the sauna and heat it up. It was done successfully during Borderland 2017 almost 24/7.
    We will also work on people to hold sauna rituals at Twisted Spa
