Aiming to help users stay connected at all times, IKEA is to launch a wireless furniture collection with incorporated induction-charging stations. The new range consists of bedside tables, lamps and and desks, each item integrating subtle white charging pads. How does the system work exactly? According to the official press release, the wireless charging pads “use transmitter and receiver coils to generate a magnetic field which induces a voltage in the receiver coil. The voltage can then power a smartphone or recharge its battery simply by resting a phone on the Qi pad. Once placed on the pad, a notification pops up to alert the user the device is charging.”
The design aesthetic of this type of furniture is simplistic, which follows the philosophy of contemporary home décor. Danish modern furniture is efficient and functional because it does not have any ornate details and it is not encumbered by excessive patterns. It is sleek, sophisticated and makes the home look more clutter-free.
