LG has fun blurring the lines between furniture and technological objects. Ahead of IFA, the manufacturer is showcasing its new air purifier, which doubles as a bedside table, mood lamp, and wireless charger. Just that !
The PuriCare Aero Furniture is not an air purifier like the others. The latest from LG, the device surprises first with its aesthetics. It comes in three colors: pink (red?), yellow and gray. Its compact format, 27.5 cm wide and 55 cm high, makes it nomadic, even if it is more intended for small spaces. The visuals also show this little tower next to a bed, so perfect as a bedside table or side table.
Its tray, round or oblique, allows you to place a few objects, but above all to charge your mobile phone or headphones. Indeed, a wireless charger is integrated into the air purifier to better immerse yourself in your home. However, we have no information regarding the compatibility of the charge with the different smartphone models.
But that’s not all. The LG Aero Furniture can also take on the role of an accent light. The device diffuses up to eight colors on two levels of intensity according to the atmosphere desired by the user. This feature can be controlled remotely via the LG ThinQ app or using the controls located on the PuriCare Aero Furniture tray.
Alongside these controls, others are provided to turn the device on and off and manage purification features. We had almost forgotten it, but it is still its primary function. Moreover, the mobile app also allows you to control these features remotely.
To sanitize the room, the base of the device draws in air 360° and purifies it through a multi-stage filtration system. The latter combines a deodorizing filter, a dust collector and a pre-filter. LG also equips the Aero Furniture with its UVnano technology, which is said to eliminate up to 99.99% of bacteria using the power of UV light. Finally, in addition to the antibacterial effect, LG ensures that five harmful gases would be eliminated: ammonia, formaldehyde, toluene, acetic acid and acetaldehyde.
The precise technical specifications and the price of the PuriCare Aero Furniture have not yet been disclosed. We will therefore have to wait for the IFA 2022 show, which takes place from September 2 to 6, 2022 in Berlin.
