TRÅDFRI Outdoor for IKEA TRÅDFRI is a beautiful soundscape collection with matching procedural light scripts that run alongside.
With presets like ‘Dawn chorus’, ‘Woodland’ and ‘Evening meadow’ you will find yourself in peaceful surroundings with all kinds of birds and other sounds of nature. ‘Asian garden’, ‘Frog pond’ and ‘Tropical beach’ all have their unique themed sounds and colors to wander off into those surroundings. And with the ‘Farm’ and ‘Roof terrace’ themes you’ll be immersed into the world of cows, chickens and tractors or on top of a Roof terrace in the city. Out of the box it’s perfectly balanced the way we think suits each preset best. But if you like, a lot of settings can be customized. Turn off the wind or add a bird or two. Don’t like our colors? Choose your own that matches your mood. We will save all your customizations between sessions.
