IKEA are known for innovation in a broad range of applications. In addition to high quality furniture, homeware, and meatballs, they are now offering an IKEA branded air purifier – known as the FÖRNUFTIG. If you’re looking for an air purifier you’ll know there are many out there to choose from – what has the IKEA FÖRNUFTIG got to offer?
The first thing is a pretty appealing price tag – $54.99, or £50/euros. This is as much as you can expect to pay for a filter alone from some other brands, so the FÖRNUFTIG is already gaining points on affordability. But it’s not just friendly on your wallet, it’s also pretty friendly on the eyes too as the FÖRNUFTIG offers some of that signature Swedish minimalism, simplicity, and elegance in its design. That means it’s going to be suitable for use in all manner of homes, regardless of your décor choices.
With dimensions of 18 x 12 x 4 inches, the FÖRNUFTIG has a reasonably small footprint too – which means you won’t have to work too hard to find somewhere convenient to put it. It’s also convenient to live with, as it’s supplied with a regular stand for simply resting on the floor, a convenient fabric carrying handle for easy movement, and the option for both vertical or horizontal wall-mounting.
Features and connectivity, like the styling, are somewhat minimal. There’s no remote app control, no wireless options, or sensors. Control is managed by a simple and intuitive dial on the top – handling choice of power the three fan speeds. The lowest setting is just 28dB, so can be used at night without providing any interruption.
With a particulate filter IKEA claims can filter out 99.5% of airborne particles, an affordable price tag, and some signature minimalist styling, the FÖRNUFTIG makes a compelling choice if you’re looking to invest in a new air purifier.
