Product details

You can choose to hang the air purifier on the wall or place it on the floor by using the included floor stand. Depending on your preference, FÖRNUFTIG air purifier can be hung both vertically and horizontally.

The handle makes it easy for you to move the air purifier between different rooms in your home and place it where it is needed most. When wall mounting the purifier, you can remove the handle.

  • 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.

    Particle filter included. Gas filter sold separately.

    Purifies the air in a space of up to 8-10 square metres, depending on which fan speed the air purifier is set to.

    The particle filter is optimized 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 3 different fan speeds and thereby adapt it to the needs of your home.

    Set the air purifier to sleep mode, the lowest fan speed with low noise, during the night so you can sleep well while the air is purified.

    The air purifier has a clean design, a low weight and a small size ⎼ so it’s easy to place in your home.

    Practical cable management on the backside helps you avoid cable clutter.

    The pull-tag on the right side makes it easy to loosen the pre-filter in order to clean it, or to remove it to change to a particle and/or gas filter.

    Suitable in various rooms of the home, even in the smallest children's rooms.

    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.

    Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) at highest/lowest fan speed: 120/25 m3/h (with both particle filter and gas filter installed).

    Sound level at the highest/lowest fan speed: 60/28 dB (with both particle filter and gas filter installed).

    Maximum wattage: 14W (with both particle filter and gas filter installed).

    Net weight: 3.05 kg (with both particle filter and gas filter installed).

    The particle filter is tested according to EN 1822-1 and ISO 29463-3 which corresponds to class EPA12.

Works well for seasonal and indoor allergiesCASSANDRAHas really been helping keep allergy symptoms at bay. I've been wanting a HEPA filter for a while but this is the first one that was more in my budget.5
Great for bedroomsAngelaSolid little purifier at great price point. I don’t think it would be powerful enough for a large space but for an average bedroom it works wonderfully. I liked the first one so much I purchased a second for another room.5
Good product!XIDONGGood product!5
Air cleanerDONNALove this. Not only does it work well to trap dust, the sound, when on number three, helps me fall asleep. I keep my home clean, yet this still pulls in a lot of dust and particles. We’ll worth the money.5
Great Little Air PurifierGerryThe 3 settings make it quiet when you need it to be, yet it can also be used as a white noise machine in a bedroom at night. It's easy to assemble, clean, and use - what more could a person want? We now have 2 in our house and are pleased with our purchases.5

Furnish with cleaner air

Pollution in a busy city can often be visible to the naked eye. But, did you know that the air in our homes also contains pollution from dust, pollen, cooking and gas chemicals such as formaldehyde, that are bad for our health? Airing out and cleaning help to a certain degree, but with an air purifier, the particles and gas chemicals such as formaldehyde are effectively filtered – while you do other things.

David Wahl works as a Product Designer at IKEA. In connection with a move some years ago, he became more aware of how much the indoor air means to our health. “All homes contain particles and gas chemicals in different shapes, and today when we spend more time indoor, they can lead to, among other things, allergic reactions and bad sleep.”

An air purifier that blends in

When David had trouble finding affordable and good-looking air purifiers, he started experimenting and building his own at home. “They turned out nice, but were honestly not the most efficient.” The experience was still valuable when he joined our team that developed FÖRNUFTIG air purifier. The work was much about optimising all small technical details to make it simple without sacrificing quality and energy-efficiency. “But when we develop at IKEA, we also do it from a home furnishing perspective, and we want FÖRNUFTIG to blend into the home. That’s why you can hang it on the wall, put it on the floor or use the handle to move your air purifier to another room.”

Cleaner air for more people

FÖRNUFTIG is quite far from the first attempts David did at home in his apartment. In a team with various competencies, there are better preconditions to develop a reliable and good looking air purifier that can make a difference for more people. “Air pollution is a serious problem, and we want people to feel that the home is a safe and healthy place.
