Tallest house of cards built in 12 hours: LG breaks Guinness World Records record

Seoul, South Korea – April 11, 2016 – LG Electronics (LG) and professional card stacker Bryan Berg set a new world record for the tallest house of cards built in 12 hours; more incredible is that the record-breaking 3.3 meter tall structure was built atop an LG Centum washing machine while it was spinning at 1,000 RPM.

The Guinness World Records world record for the tallest free-standing house of cards measured 7.86 m (25 feet 9 7/16 inches) and was built by Bryan Berg (USA) on 16 October 2007 in Dallas, Texas, USA.

Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest human playing card; it consisted of 600 participants at an event organized by the Turning Stone Resort and Casino (USA) in Verona, New York, USA on 13 July 2013.

Bryan Berg, a Harvard-educated architect who began stacking cards at the age of eight, partnered with LG on his record-breaking attempt, a 48-story house constructed of only normal playing cards.

“We are thrilled for Bryan, who achieved a special goal, while also helping to highlight the technological innovations that exist in some of today’s home appliances,” said Jo Seong-jin, CEO and president of the LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solutions Company.

“Appliances should no longer be viewed as noisy, disruptive machines but a home companion that can coexist unobtrusively in any kitchen. This record-breaking event was a creative way to drive this point home.”

LG’s unique Centum System™ utilizes a new damping system equipped with shock absorbers, similar to those found in automobiles. This fixed-tub system greatly reduces vibration and noise levels.
