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.”
Because of the poor economy, consumers are looking to get the most for their money. Danish modern furniture is a worthwhile investment because it will look good for years to come. Unlike other contemporary pieces, Danish furniture has a timeless sophistication that translates well as the decades change. Buying vintage pieces can be expensive, so look for new furniture that is only inspired by the 1950’s for an affordable alternative that will not break the bank.
