IKEA To Sell Air Purifier Built Into Side Table
Ikea who are raking in the cash but paying little if no taxes in Australia is pushing further into appliance with the Swedish Company now set to launch an air purifier built into a side table.
Due to be available in October the IKEA Starkvind air purifier is attached on the underside of a side table, away from the floor.
It’s designed to service rooms up to 19 metres in size with the Starkvind able to work on its own and can be connect it to the IKEA Tradfri smart home gateway allowing it to be turned on and off via the Ikea Home app which also works with a Sonos sound system sold by IKEA.
It has five different fan speeds and an auto-mode that adjusts based on the number of particles in the air.
The device has a three-filter system built in to thoroughly filter the air, at this stage it’s not known how noisy it is especially as it is built into a table which could be next to a chair or settee where you watch TV.
The first filter is a prefilter that captures the big particles in the air, such as pet hair and dust. The second filter is designed to remove most particles from the air, capturing up to 99.5% of smaller particles such as pollen. The third and final filter is for gas. It absorbs pollutants like formaldehyde and other VOCs and also reduces unpleasant odours in the air.
The Starkvind comes in two models: the table model, as well as a standalone model. If the table doesn’t fit your style or the decor of your home, the standalone model will work fine claims IKEA.
The thing to remember is that it only serves an area of 19-20 metres so a smaller room or smaller part of a room.
