Silent Room

Imagine the psychological state of being in a black hole. Then experience it in The Silent Room. The matte black structure is fully soundproofed and anechoic; step inside for a very rare and precious moment alone. The interior blocks out all sound from the outside and absorbs any sound that is made inside, while the monochromic lighting filters out all colors. The space, designed by Dutch London-based artist Simon Heijdens, delivers an immersive experience of silence and peace, devoid of any visual or audible manifestation except the self, to create a rare, unmediated state.
