  • Smart and tech-enabled furniture

    Smart and tech-enabled furniture is becoming increasingly popular as technology continues to evolve and become more integrated into our daily lives. The use of smart technology in furniture can enhance the functionality and convenience of our living spaces.

    For instance, IKEA has been developing smart home products since 2015, such as wireless charging furniture, according to Mathias Karlsson, the director of IKEA Canada's home smart initiative [2]. Adjustable desks that can be raised or lowered via a smartphone app and voice-activated lighting that can be controlled through voice commands are other examples of smart furniture.

    Smart street furniture is also a growing trend, with technology advancing and becoming more integrated into our physical surroundings. Smart street furniture can serve as public services or surveillance and advertising tools. The issues raised by smart street furniture are complex and raise questions about privacy and the use of data [1].

    Overall, smart and tech-enabled furniture offers a wide range of possibilities, and as technology continues to evolve, we can expect to see more innovative and functional designs in the future.
