Promotion: Italian wellness brand Effe has launched a number of new saunas for 2023, including the Aladdin sauna and the Natural modular cubicle, which is available as a sauna, hammam or infrared sauna.
The design is characterised by its minimalist aesthetic and a mirrored fascia running around the bottom of the sauna, both internally and externally.
The Natural collection was designed by Marco Williams Fagioli
“The name conjures up images of flying carpets and the idea of weightlessness, the inspiration behind the sauna which has been designed to become a discreet, understated addition to the home,” said the brand.
Aladdin’s benches are made from only two pieces of wood, which are available in either light-striped oak or darker wenge.

The sauna is available in two standard sizes or – as with all Effe products – can be made to measure and comes with an option for an additional internal platform covered in grès porcelain reminiscent of a flying carpet.
Designed by Marco Williams Fagioli, the Natural collection of modular spas all share the same heat-treated aspen cladding and toughened-glass front wall but differ inside to enable either a sauna, hammam or infrared sauna experience.
The Natural collection offers the benefits of 3 heat sources – the hammam, sauna and infrared sauna
“The Natural collection combines three wellbeing rituals – the hammam, sauna and infrared sauna – and all the benefits their heat offers in one single design,” said Effe.
“The transparency of the glass ensures light floods into the sauna, it lets you connect with your surroundings and eliminates any feeling of being enclosed.”

Inside the Natural sauna are a high two-person bench and a lower moveable seat with a laminated grès porcelain top, while a backlit satin-finish glass panel in the side wall helps make the space feel larger.
A three-kilowatt heater brings the sauna up to temperature.
The interior of the hammam version is clad in grès porcelain for a cosy, textural feel. Steam is generated by an Effe Nuvola Smart Power unit housed under the bench.
Both the Aladdin sauna and the Natural collection result from Effe’s ongoing research into home spas
Colour therapy comes as standard, as does a shower built into the wall, with fittings available in chrome, matte black or matte gunpowder grey finishes.
The Natural infrared sauna, which uses infrared rays to penetrate the skin and warm the body at a lower temperature than a conventional sauna in order to relax muscles and tendons, has a bench positioned to receive direct heat from the lamps.

A major study by The Anti-Inflammaging Company (A-I) commissioned by Effe identified the most effective ways to use heat therapy to treat low-grade chronic inflammation, which has been linked to as many as 50 per cent of premature deaths worldwide.
Based on the study, the free My Effe app, recently developed by the company, provides users with personalised tips for reducing inflammation. Effe says that the app is the result of its pursuit to enhance its products’ wellness effectiveness.
Formerly named Effegibi, Effe describes its mission as transforming the spa into a contemporary piece of Italian-designed furniture suitable for multiple rooms in the home.
