IKEA, the great Swedish furniture makers and innovators, have once again answered the call for the needs of their customer base, and have created a beautifully minimalist line of furniture that you can charge your wireless devices with. The line, which consists of:
VARV – a simple table lamp
VARV – a floor lamp
RIGGAD – a work desk lamp
NORDLI – an elegant bedside table
SELJE – another simple but beautiful bedside or end table
How does it work? According to IKEA’s press release, the lamps and tables “use transmitter and receiver coils to generate a magnetic field which induces a voltage in the receiver coil. The voltage can then power a smartphone or recharge its battery simply by resting a phone on the Qi pad. Once placed on the pad, a notification pops up to alert the user the device is charging.”
In addition, they’ve designed some simple charging pads that you can put anywhere in the house, and we love them because they have a beautiful, elegant design and would be extremely handy to have placed in different rooms in your home.
NORDMÄRKE is a single pad with wireless charger
NORDMÄRKE is also available as a triple pad with wireless charger
ROMMA is IKEA’s cable management box
The wireless charging furniture, lamps and pads will be available on IKEA’s website starting in mid-April, and will cost around $20-$70 depending on the piece.
