The “quietest room in the world”, according to the Guinness World Records – As soon as the door is closed, the person is in the absolute silence that the body experiences only in death
In 2015, at Microsoft’s headquarters in Redmond, Washington, “the quietest room in the world” was built, according to Guinness World Records (center photo).
In this room there is literally deathly silence as not even the slightest external sound passes through – as soon as the door is closed, the person is in the absolute silence that the body experiences only in death.
The room was designed to offer employees moments of calm and contact with their inner selves. However, no one has managed to stay in this space for more than 45 minutes.

With no sound coming in from the outside world, the absolute silence gradually turns into an unbearable ringing in the ears.
The lack of echo “damages spatial awareness” and leads a person to disorientation while due to ringing in the ears, one can lose his balance.
“When you turn your head, you can even hear this movement. You can hear yourself breathing,” Hundraj Gopal, designer of Microsoft’s “quiethouse,” recently told the New York Post.
