The Sauna is one of those elusively modern pieces. On the one hand, it’s a sound and functional offering serving as either a bench, platform base, or table. But in typical mid-century modern style, the design is also fully indicative of progress. The question then becomes how a practical piece became a symbol of limitless creativity? How a bench that still remains very much in tomorrow, graces the rooms of many businesses, resorts, hotels, restaurants and homes today? In order to propose an answer, we need to first look into the specifics. The surface is comprised of a slotted square rectangular design. While the base is constructed of solidly welded pieces of metal, there are no legs in the classic understanding of legs. Also the vertical metal slats of metal are slanted. This then is our answer. Imagine if you were vested with the task of making a mid-century modern bench. It was to be fully practical, because otherwise the pragmatists among you would belittle it. But hidden beneath the functionality, the trial would be to portray the uncertain future that was yet to be. What made the Sauna bench an icon is the same reason you have opted to buy it today for your home or office. Why is this still the bench of tomorrow? Because if you were asked to envision a bench for the next 50 years, there is a good chance it will look something like this.
