One-percenters, this is for you: a sauna in a box. Just needs ribbon.

Should you be lucky enough to have a spare $41,000 lining your pocket, Matter in NYC offers a fully contained sauna encased in a shipping container with a corten steel exterior hardy enough to withstand saltwater. Built by Canadian design firm Castor, the watertight container is completely self sufficient with solar power and a wood-fired stove. The Sauna Box is available at Matter in NYC.

Above: Each sauna box comes with an iPod stereo, electric guitar hook-up, a stool made be Castor, a magnetic truck light, and bronze antlers.
