Great product BUTJayTnycI have an apartment with low light and wanted the FLOALT panel to hang freestanding on my wall to mimic the feeling of an additional window during this COVID quarantine. I did a LOT of research because of the issues noted in these reviews, and can tell you the description is clearly just copied from the original European guide. I tried to reach IKEA directly but was never able to get through. Here's what ended up working for me: I purchased the ANSLUTA power supply cord and the TRADFRI remote (which you have to have to make this work properly). I expected from my online research that there would be a plug-in option for the ANSLUTA on the back of the panel for free-standing hanging, but no such luck. So I worked it out manually, putting the ends of the hot (black) wire and the neutral (white) wire in separate connection holes of the ANSLUTA cord and securing firmly with electrical tape (you do not need the other ground wire for this type of install, but I capped it off just in case). I gathered the excess cord from the ANSLUTA (it's long) and kept it behind the light's mount, then passed the remaining cord btwn the mount and the light (there's no hole for this, but it works anyway). I plugged it in, and voila! It was more work than I wanted, but not terribly difficult, and the product works as advertised w/the remote. 3 different light temps and plenty of intensity options. Overall I'm very happy with it.4
Decent, with more caveatszeldonSo, I really wanted to like this thing, and was real close to keeping it, but it just marginally did not work in my use case scenario. I was looking to replace a single bulb flushmount with something brighter and with some color temperature options, but found that the beam spread of this is simple not wide enough for my liking. My ceilings are 8', and the beam only started to light from about 6.5-7 up, and did not light up the height of the entire wall, unlike a traditional flushmount. If I perhaps had taller ceilings, or wasn't quite as picky, I probably would have kept this. As far as brightness, this thing gets very bright, but does not dim quite as far as I would like for a bedroom. Color temperature options are nice, but of course not as realistic as a traditional incandescent. I did not mount and hardwire this unit as I wanted to test all of the above first, but the instructions tell you to hardwire, THEN screw it to your junction box, using two people to hold it up, which is kinda hilarious and a recipe for frustration. Make sure you have a very handy friend and perhaps two ladders. I'll also note that there are two models—the model sold in the US, and the model sold overseas—the instructions pdf on this page are for the overseas model, so if you are hoping to daisy chain them, you won't be able to as indicated, there is no cutout in the metal chassis, you'll need to cut one out, and wire it yourself—good luck. Lastly, one *can* use this with a removable cord, I bought the 'Husky 8 ft Tool Replacement Cord' from HD, wired it up with the included wired nuts, and plugged into a power strip, and hand held it to my ceiling to get an idea of what it would look like before committing to installation—glad I did since it was not a fit for me. Overall, I'd give it a 3.-3.5. It's a decent price for lots of light and remote-controlled color temperature. I just wish the beam spread were much better, instructions were accurate and less frustrating(typical Ikea!), and a bit more authentic color.3
Great with major caveatsCasey81First, the great: This thing is bright. You can think of it as a wall sized happy light that can also change white temperatures between bright white and sunset. Its reasonably well built. Its integration with my hue system worked without incident. I have it on my wall and it acts a lot like an artificial window and gives me the brightness that I have craved in a basement apartment for years. The integration with hue and its massive brightness means that you can use it to keep yourself on body clock sun schedule in areas where you have little natural light. The bad: The US version of this product is simply different than the Rest of World model. It states that you can use this with either a wall or ceiling wiring connector or with an adapter plug to allow it to plug into the wall. This is NOT true. In the US (and perhaps North American) version you only get the ceiling mount lighting. So if you want to mount this on a wall and use it as a plug in device you have to do your own unauthorized surgery. I have done this. Its a pain, but it works. You need to buy a matching extension type cord with three prongs. I bought the outlet called Koppla. You then have to move the internal LED driver to get access and open the LED driver transformer. You then have to punch out the metal tab where the alternative wire exit spot sits and wire nut your new wiring connections. You then need to secure the new wire to the internal structure (I used zip ties). Then you need to secure the new wire to the frame securely to ensure that if you trip on the cord you are not going to pull out wires from the wire nuts. I used more zip ties to attach to the internal frame to accomplish this. Finally, you optionally have to drill a hole through the bottom of the frame to give the wire an exit point if you want it to hang cleanly on the wall. If you don't care, then just accept you will get a 1/4 push out on the bottom of the panel for the cord. I haven't bothered with the bottom hole drill. Plug it in from a distance on its own power strip with a surge protector and hope nothing sparks. Remember to add the frame ground into the ground connection for the wire nut. The modification described took me 1.5 hours to do but it my first experience with home-level voltages and I needed to learn a lot. Doing this again would take me about 20 minutes. I'm thinking of doing so for the living room. The notes: You really don't need the ikea bridge or the remote to make this work. I first set it up with the wireless remote. I can't get the wireless remote to pair to hue. The ikea bridge wasn't needed at all to get the light up on hue but I suppose may be needed if you get an older version and need to update the firmware. When ever I tried to get the remote to work again it knocked the frame off of hue network.3
Not suitable for apartmentswoolygrantFirst off, the amount of light and temperature is as advertised. What's not advertised is you can use this only if you have wiring etc for recessed lighting. The panel comes with just the live-neutral-ground end points, without a 3-prong ping and cable. This makes it unsuitable for apartments. I wish the designer had actually used this panel before mass producing it.1
Plastic is a key material for IKEA, and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs. There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.
Rebecca is ready. She knows the reasoning and effort behind every aspect of the range, and she can explain how it will change life at home for the better. But her audience is enthralled with something she forgot could be exciting. “People were amazed with the remote,” says Rebecca. “That you could steer your lamps from wherever you are.” She laughs, pleased to be reminded it can be a delight to control the brightness or tone of a bulb remotely. “When you work with it so closely you get used to the products and the things they can do,” says Rebecca. “So, when you hear people ‘oh’ and ‘ah’ over the design and function of the remote—which I see every day—you feel very proud of what you’ve accomplished.”
Improving life at home
Smart lighting is one way we’re using technology to improve life at home. Imagine a cozy weekday family dinner, lights glowing soft and warm. When the meal is done, the table is cleared for homework, which calls for clean, bright light. The goal of Rebecca and the Smart lighting team is to make that transition simple and smooth. Literally, it can be at the touch of a button. “Lighting is such an important part of life at home,” says Rebecca. “You do so many activities every day at home and the light needs to support you in doing all these things.” The range is made up of products that can be combined to create a personalized home lighting solution. It includes LED bulbs, panels and cabinet doors that can all be controlled by a remote. You can dim them and even change the tone of the light, from warm to cold. One remote can control up to 10 Smart lighting products.
Making home tech affordable
Smart lighting technology isn’t new, but so far it hasn’t been so accessible. “It’s been very expensive and complicated,” says Rebecca. “If we can develop Smart lighting that’s easy to understand and affordable, it actually becomes accessible to the many people.” When it comes to cost, Rebecca and her team set a personal goal. “What would we want to pay for a light bulb like this?” asks Rebecca. “We’ve been going back to this idea throughout the whole process.” Working with large volumes has helped lower costs and by collaborating with experienced tech suppliers, we’ve been able to find smart ways to save. Those savings are then passed on to the customer.
User friendly and convenient
By offering “kits” that have everything you need to get started, we make it easier to have Smart lighting in your home and if you end up wanting to expand your solution, it’s simple. “You can start with the function that suits you and your family’s life, and you can build on that,” says Rebecca. You can look forward to even more Smart lighting products from IKEA in the future. “There will be upgrades and new things customers can do to improve and build on the system,” says Rebecca, who sees a fuss-free future where very little can interrupt a lazy afternoon. “If you sit on your sofa and want to turn on the light, but the light switch is over on the wall, well, obviously with the wireless remote you don’t actually have to get up!”
Only recycled or renewable plastics
Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted. Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material. Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.
Phasing out single-use plastics
Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups, and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.
PET and PP our most commonly used plastics
Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse. PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil. PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.
Clean and safe
IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.
Together, we can do more
Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!
