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 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.

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

Great product for the pricebrendaGreat product for the price5
Really like the very quiet sleeping modeYIWe have air purifier in each room and it’s all different in size and brand. This one is next to the nightstands in the bedrooms, we didn’t notice it’s on when it’s on the low speed, very important for a little sleeper. Thank you IKEA5
This is a cats dream machine.DavidPerfect for our Cat Room. It works great.5
Very discreet and fits inEricVery discreet and fits in with our home design. Enjoy it a lot.5
worth it and looks greatIanI bought this primarily for white noise, and secondarily for some air filtration. It does both quite well I like the way it looks. It uses a squirrel cage fan setup, like those used in better Bath fans. Very low power consumption. The tone is higher than I like but got used to it, I think opening up the exhaust grill would help. Low is silent, Med is what I use, High- too much. Definitely grabs the dust, and I think pollen; air does feel cleaner subjectively. For this price you really cannot do better.4
Good item!ChuckIt works as described and looks great in our room!5
Love the modern lookIsabelSo far it’s great5
Does what it’s suppose toNatalieI cook a lot and our apartment can get stuffy and dusty so I initially bought one for the living room to test out to see if there would be a difference when I cooked and it definitely helps when the cooking smells. I plan on purchasing one for our bedrooms and office.5
I've only used the airCHERYLI've only used the air purifier for a short while but so far, it works well. It's a bit loud on the highest speed but no more so than other air purifiers.4
Great air filter. Hopefully IRuthGreat air filter. Hopefully I can get new filters shipped.5
Purchased 4/2021 attempt return 2/21/22Michael W.I loved this product until about 2 months ago. I use it on the first setting in my office. I started to hear a ticking, clicking noise that has gotten worse. It worked great until about 2 months ago when I replaced both filters after the replacement light came on. Shortly after the noises started. I loved with it until too loud in the office to use. Attempted to return on 2/21/22. Outside the 180 day return window, no exchange option. Come to find out, it has no warranty! I love my IKEA products and have purchased for years. I asked them to recycle the product. I am very disappointed with IKEA.1

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.”
