World-famous Solar Egg now a permanent attraction

Due to technical problems during the installation, Solar Egg is unfortunately partly covered until further notice. /Artipelag, April 17th, 2019

Artist duo Bigert & Bergström’s famous artwork Solar Egg, which has toured the world and has visited Artipelag once before, during the artists’ Eye of the storm exhibition, has now been given a permanent home on the rocks beside the footbridge to the rooftop terrace.

Bigert & Bergströms Solar Egg (2017), which originally was created on behalf of Riksbyggen, has been produced in a version exclusively for Artipelag and gotten a permanent position here that unifies its sculptural qualities with the social dimension of the sauna as a meeting place. The artwork is part of Artipelag’s permanent collection, as well as a feature of our 2019 Sculpture in Nature outdoor exhibition.

Solar Egg is made out of stainless golden mirror sheeting, its multifaceted form breaking up the surroundings that it reflects into a multiplicity of different mirror images. The interior is crafted of pine and aspen. In the centre of the egg, there is a fully functional wood-heated sauna stove, shaped like a human heart.

Beyond its physical aspects, Solar Egg also has a social dimension, as a place where people can meet to discuss how to manage all the challenges of climate change.

Solar Egg has previously won the prestigious Red Dot Award, as well as many others, including Swedish Arts and Business Awards and German Design Awards. But it is not just its design that has won awards – last autumn Time Out named Solar Egg as No.3 on its list of the 50 Best Things to Do in the World.

The egg has space for up to eight people inside and can be pre-booked for saunas every day that Artipelag is open. A bathrobe, bath slippers and towel are included in the price, and drinks with snacks can be ordered to either the sauna or the adjacent (soon to be completed) changing room. More info about this will be available shortly, but you can register your interest now by e-mailing

Organic Sloe Flavoured Beer

Together with the nearby Värmdö Brewery, Artipelag has developed a brand new beer flavour. Let us introduce Artipelag Organic Lager, with a taste of sloe.

The beer, which is a lager, contains handpicked sloes from Artipelag’s surroundings, and the juice from the berries has been added to the beer. Artipelag’s sommelier Tim Good describes the beer as light, flowery, sweet and fresh. Tim has been involved in the process, and has also handpicked the sloe berries.
– The beer should be enjoyed at 8–10°C, in peace and quiet, Tim says.

Sloes – sticky and uneatable berries

Brewing beer may take anything from four weeks up to half a year or even several years. It all depends on what kind of beer and which ingredients the beer will contain. The sloes for Artipelag’s beer are picked in late autumn. The sloe bushes grow in Artipelag’s surrounding coastal landscape and belong to the Rose family, which can be recognized by their sharp thorns and dense thickets. They bloom with beautiful little white flowers from May to June. In September, the berries are ready to be picked, but unfortunately they do not taste very good when eating them raw. The taste comes best forth when the berries are boiled.

The sloe flavoured Artipelag Organic Lager is sold exclusively at Artipelag Restaurant and at Bådan Café & Pâtisserie. You are welcome to try it!

Locally Produced Beer

Värmdö Brewery was founded by a group of childhood friends in 2012. Located at Säbyviken on Ingarö in the Stockholm archipelago, it is a genuine archipelago brewery. The facility also houses an apple cider mill.
