Logitech and Herman Miller’s gaming chair will assuage your back and even burn a hole in your pocket
In February, ahead of countless of people understood that they will be spending most of their waking lives seated at our home computer owing to COVID lockdowns, popular furniture designer Herman Miller declared an association with Logitech G to “design and manufacture the next generation high-performance furniture solutions for gamers.”
Currently, the product of their combined efforts has appeared in the form of the Embody Gaming Chair – a combination of the already present Herman Miller Embody line of ergonomic office seats and the additional gaming-specific specifications established by Logitech’s committed gaming brand, Logitech G.
With the launch of this brand new chair comes the declaration of its price which is an eye-watering $1,495 (£1,195, about AU$2,300) that perhaps shouldn’t be a surprise if one is accustomed to several other products from Herman Miller.
The designer furniture brand is very well known for its Aeron ergonomic office chair. Herman Miller has even added its celebrated clean aesthetic and emphasis to comfort and back support in this association, which led to the creation of a design that’s substantially less ‘loud’ as compared to several other gaming chairs in the market.
This chair even strikes a great deal more concerning ergonomic support, as it offers an adaptable ‘spine’ and alterable ‘ribs’ that claim to adjust-to and support every individual’s spine and ribs. Gaming specific peculiarities determined by Logitech G involve cooling foam that is used in the seat and lower back of the chair, along with a seat that supports “active, vertical sitting position,” for the intensive gaming moments.
The Embody Gaming Chair isn’t the only product of this association, Herman Miller and Logitech G also released details about the Nevi, Motia, and Ratio which are versatile gaming desks that will be available in matte black, anti-smudge and anti-glare finishes, along with the Ollin Monitor Arm to conclude the set.
The Motia is open for preorder in the US at the price of $1,295 (about £1,000 / AU$1,800), whereas in the UK the Nevi is open to preorder for £995. Similarly, The Ollin is open for preorder in the US and UK too, which costs $295 / £175 respectively (about AU$400). Official pricing and availability for these desks and arms in areas outside of the US and UK have still to be established.
