The IKEA Starkvind smart air purifier is a design-conscious take on the indoor air cleaner appliance that will work to hide the unit in plain sight for enhanced aesthetic appeal. The furniture piece maintains the silhouette of a side table, but is integrated with advanced air cleaning technology in the main body to eliminate the need for a separate appliance. The system can be set to one of five fan speeds or set to auto-mode to automatically adjust the settings according to how dirty the air is detected to be.
The IKEA Starkvind smart air purifier was explained further by Product Owner at IKEA of Sweden Henrik Telander who said, "For IKEA, the smart home is not about gadgets. It’s about making life and home better through combining our solid home-furnishing knowledge with digital solutions and technology. That’s why we explore the possibility of integrating the function of purifying air and technology to provide a good experience for customers at home”
