Logitech and Herman Miller join forces on US$1,495 gaming chair
Herman Miller is a name that is synonymous with high-end office chairs so it is a little surprising that they would want to enter the gaming market as well. However, the rise of teleworking thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic looks to have created a niche market for executive types who love their Herman Miller chairs, but also want to lean back and get into some serious gaming during down time. To help in creating such a product, Herman Miller has partnered with Logitech to develop the latest iteration of their ‘Embody’ line of chairs.
The new Herman Miller X Logitech G Embody Gaming Chair is seriously sophisticated – priced at US$1,495, it is the least that you would expect. With seven points of calibration, the Embody Gaming Chair can be individually tailored to align to the posture and spinal position that bests suits those lucky enough to afford one. It also features copper-laden foam to help regulate temperature as well as “Dynamic Pixel Circulation” that distributes your weight evenly regardless of position.
Although it is relatively sedate in terms of its design language compared to other gaming chairs, the Embody Gaming Chair does include Logitech’s signature G series blue coloring when viewed from behind. It is available now through either company’s websites and can be matched with a new Motia Gaming Desk (US$1,295) and a matching monitor arm (US$295). On the plus side, it might be one of the few gaming set ups you can buy that could be legitimately used for a home office with the associated tax benefits, depending on your country of residence.
