(MU) Room, Panasonic’s relaxation room, is like being in a foggy forest
(MU) ROOM is a room to relax or meditate, developed by Panasonic. A magical space where mist, aromas, sound and lighting combine to help you eliminate stress.
We live hard times full of tension and uncertainty that not only affect our physical health, but also psychological. Many people choose meditation and relaxation to combat the stress and anxiety of the daily routine.
Panasonic has thought of them and has developed (MU) ROOM, a room to facilitate relaxation, meditation and the practice of Mindfulness.
All of these methods try to reduce stress and anxiety preventing the mind from wandering and stopping thinking about other things than the present moment. That’s what he pursues (MU) ROOM, with a combination of fog, smells, lights and sounds that affect all our senses. You can see it in this video:
First, a series of steam jets scattered throughout the room, which is about 7 square meters, creates a relaxing artificial mist, covering the entire room.
In combination with ambient lighting, which can change color and follow different patterns, it is achieved that eyes lose reference to walls and objects, which helps to relax and meditate.
The sounds with spatial localization They help create environments inspired by forests, the seashore, a camping trip, and other relaxing places. Finally, real scents including phytoncides, a compound released by forest trees, contribute to creating the ideal climate to practice mindfulness.
The idea of Panasonic is that these relaxation rooms (MU) ROOM are installed in hotel rooms, but they can also be installed at home, since they occupy the same as a small room of 7 square meters.
A (MU) ROOM has already been installed in el hotel Anteroom, in Kyoto (Japan) in the testing phase. Users allow it to be measured your heart rate and breathing to determine the effectiveness of the room, and receive a score that they can try to improve in future sessions.
