IKEA To Help Charge Your Gizmo
The favorite furniture store of my daughter and her husband, IKEA, is going to offer furniture with integrated wireless charging spots. This will allow you to easily charge devices using the Qi standard by simply laying them on the charging spot.
”Through research and home visits, we know that people hate cable mess. They worry about not finding the charger and running out of power. Our new innovative solutions, which integrate wireless charging into home furnishings, will make life at home simpler”, says Jeanette Skjelmose, Business Area Manager Lighting and Wireless Charging.
The technology builds on collaboration with the global certification standard Qi, offering a third party certification for wireless charging products. The new collection, turning bedside tables, floor and table lamps as well as desks into charging spots, was designed by among others David Wahl.
