Ikea is always ahead, no doubt about it.
The new wireless charging furniture range is the umpteenth example of their talent in responding to new needs and habits. It includes coffee tables, bedside tables, lamps and pads fitted with wireless charging spots that supports the common Qi industry standard and therefore compatible with IPhones and Samsung cell phones)
Soon you will be able to charge your phone just putting it on a table.
The Ikea wireless charging collection will be available next month in USA and UK and soon after in the rest of the world. Good job.
Last night I was reading on the internet (I want to buy the biography!) the story of Ikea‘s founder Ingvar Kamprad, a weird character who built an empire from nothing, a marketing genius and a brilliant mind who once said that designing “a desk which may cost $1,000 is easy for a furniture designer, but to design a functional and good desk which shall cost $50 can only be done by the very best”.
