  • 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 85-105 square feet, depending on which fan speed the air purifier is set to.

    The particle filter is optimized to filter away approximately 99.5% of smaller airborne particles such as PM2.5 particles, dust, and pollen.

    PM2.5 are small inhalable particles, that measure 0.1-2.5 micrometers.

    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 odor of smoke, cooking odors and other unpleasant odors 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: 70/11 CFM (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: 14 W (with both particle filter and gas filter installed).

    Net weight: 6.7 lbs. (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.

Air purifierAshley J.Great for a small room! My child’s allergies have stoped significantly since we’ve been using it5
Sleek and space savingMistyWay better than the bigger bulkier purifiers you get elsewhere. Looks chic and can even be wall mounted5
Effective, but loudJulieA little on the loud side, but a good price e. Replacement filters are also relatively inexpensive.4
It's helps clean the airMelonieIt's helps clean the air in our small apartment and minimize the cat fur everywhere!5
great air purifierALICEThis unit is amazingly quiet, and very efficient, We could tell within a matter of hours that the air in our bedroom was much cleaner.5
Helped my allergies and asthmaJosephine B.I have both allergies and asthma, sometimes the former even triggers the latter. I used to cough and have a stuffy nose when trying to sleep, and so falling asleep was difficult. I leave this on low all day and night by my bed, and I can now breathe easily and sleep better.5
Great idea, not so great executionRo M.I got this for my 200 sq ft studio, to filter out cooking smells and hopefully cut down on the dust in the air. Pros: Love the design, easy to move, easy to assemble. Cons: Fan seems too weak and too small to really make a difference in my space. Putting it on high immediately led to the plug starting to noticeably heat up in the outlet, so I was worried about leaving the fan on high for any significant amount of time.2
Nice and Stylish Air PurifierYvetteWe enjoy it at home. Cleans the air and is quiet.5
Not only have, I noticedJudyNot only have, I noticed a huge decreasing allergy symptoms, I don’t have to dust as often!5
Fantastic way to keep air pureJOHNBought one when first saw it on shelf at Stoughton Ma store and went back and got second one the next week. Have four of them operating in rooms in our home and what a difference clean air makes. Easier to breathe, easy to move around the house … what a difference. Only put in new filters once a year. Clean them monthly same date as when we clean our AC filters. Great product period. Do yourself and your family a favor buy some, install them and use them. You and your family will certainly be happier and healthier for it.5
Plastic smell freaks me out! Too Noisy.Elizaveta L.smells terrible. The plastic it has been made of stinks like hell. It has been in my room with the door closed for about 1.5 hours working and the smell of plastic makes me tear up. I am not sure it brings more benefit than harm to my lungs. Wish I could return it right now, I did not expect this stinky thing to be around me. Some kind of scam. Also, it is noisy, maybe ok when you are not around but if you are around it will annoy you. One cannot rely on good quality in America, it seems to me - all is worse than in Europe. Even IKEA. So much hassle. I expected the prime quality product for good prices, but it is not. Easy to assemble, though, but I DO fear this stinky thing being around.1
Love that it can hungJessicaLove that it can hung on the wall. On the lowest setting you can't even hear it. If you turn it up, it just sounds like a normal fan running.4
Artful and UsefulJohn P.This is an attractive air filter, unlike most of them, and in a very practical shape. It dresses up your home and is pretty quiet. It has the hallmarks of quality and I have tested the filtration ability. I like the speed settings. When you move the dial up or down, the speed of the motor gradually increases or decreases. This is a touch of quality I have never seen. I liked this unit enough that I bought two more. I think you'll like it too.5
It's a true gas filter!KENDRA M.I love this air purifier and the gas filter is super effective. This isn't your average carbon pre-filter, folks, it's an actual activated charcoal gas filter which is almost impossible to find at this price point. I used to own an IQAir ($1,200) to filter VOCs. While this isn't as robust as the IQAir, it is remarkably impressive. The only suggestion I have would be to add a fourth speed setting in between 1 & 2. It's a bit of a jump between the two settings. Thank you, Ikea!5
exactly what i needEllenThis filtration device runs very quietly and looks unobtrusive. I really like that it has a light to tell you when to replace the filter. I am super happy to have this to keep the air in my office clean.5
Orange lightBETH D.I have an orange light on. It is on top of the air purifier. I changed the filter with a brand new one and light does not go off??? What am I doing wrong. Other than that I love it5
Great product for a greatSTEFANIEGreat product for a great price!5
Great little space purifierCHADOverall, works as expected. I do like I can move it from space to space as I use it in a small home office space and bedroom.4
Stylish and efficientPaulGot this for my 7x11 bedroom and it works like a charm5
Easy to assemble, easy toBonnieEasy to assemble, easy to use, works great!5
FÖRNUFTIG Air purifier, black, 12x18 "

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 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 optimizing 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 a team with various competencies, there are better preconditions to develop a reliable air purifier that can make a difference for more people. “Air pollution is a serious problem, and we want to provide solutions that help people breath cleaner indoor air.”
