STARKVIND Table with air purifier, stained oak veneer/dark brown smart
How to get it
Both a side table and an air purifier that improves the indoor air quality. STARKVIND can be adjusted manually, set to auto mode or be connected to DIRIGERA hub for full control via IKEA Home smart app.
The air purifier can be set to auto mode, which means that it automatically detects the particles (PM2.5) in the air and then adjusts the fan speed, so you can think about other things.
You can sleep with the air purifier on since it is very quiet at the lower fan speeds. If connected to the IKEA Home smart app, you can also turn the LED light off on the unit when going to sleep.
By connecting STARKVIND to DIRIGERA hub, you can control the air purifier in the IKEA Home smart app.
You can hide the cable in one of the table legs and inside the air purifier to avoid cable clutter.
The air purifier comes with a particle filter so it purifies the air from various particles as efficiently as possible. You can also buy a gas filter and use the two filters together.
This product is part of our smart home range. Connect it, along with other smart products, to DIRIGERA hub and IKEA Home smart app for more features and functions.
This smart product can also be connected to a TRÅDFRI gateway.
Purifies the air in a space of up to 20 square metres, depending on which fan speed the air purifier is set to.
It will take longer time to purify the air if the room is larger than 20 square meters, but you can always use several air purifiers to cover a larger area.
The particle filter is optimised to filter away approximately 99.5 percent of smaller airborne particles such as PM2.5 particles, dust and pollen.
PM2.5 are small inhalable particles, that measure 0.1-2.5 micrometres.
The gas filter (sold separately) purifies the air from various gaseous pollutants such as formaldehyde, which can be found in things like cleaning/household products and various fabrics and materials.
The gas filter helps to reduce the odour of smoke, cooking odours and other unpleasant odours that may be present in the home.
You can set the air purifier to 5 different fan speeds and thereby adapt it to the needs of your home, or you can use it in auto mode.
If you want to use a voice assistant, you can connect to Amazon Alexa, Apple Home, or Google Home through integrations in the IKEA Home smart app.
Check the filter regularly to see if it’s dirty. An LED indicator illuminates when you need to check your filters and possibly replace them. The filter is recommended to be replaced within 6 months.
The particle filter is tested according to EN 1822-1 and ISO 29463-3 which corresponds to class EPA12.

Is STARKVIND a table or an air purifier? Both! At IKEA, we like to think differently to get as much as possible out of every space. One way to do it, is to integrate two functions in one product.
The idea of STARKVIND first came up when Paul Larsson, who is one of our most experienced engineers working with air purifiers, brainstormed ideas with his colleagues.
“With our knowledge in furniture, we have a unique opportunity to integrate tech in the home and combine materials like plastic, metal, textiles and wood in a safe way.”
It’s OK to spill
But, what happens if the coffee cup you put on the table tips over and the coffee comes near the air purifier?
It was, of course, a scenario Paul and the team had thought of.
“It’s about stopping drip before it reaches the fan in the air purifier. First, we thought about putting a rubber strip under the tabletop but then realised we could remove instead of add.”
Underneath the tabletop, you can feel thin grooves in the wood.
“The liquid gathers in the grooves and drips on the floor instead of trickling down in the air purifier. It was an idea that proved so good that we have patented it.”
Tough quality tests
Combining an air purifier and a table meant new, strict quality tests.
“To live up to our standards, STARKVIND had to be able to withstand a pressure of 100 kilos from above in 10-second intervals and pressure from the sides 10,000 times. These are tests we always do for tables, but nothing we normally expose an air purifier to.”
Paul says that all product development is a balance between practical and aesthetic solutions, and STARKVIND felt extra important to get just right.
“It feels good to be able to contribute to cleaner indoor air by something that blends in and becomes a natural part of the home.”
