The Herman Miller x Logitech gaming chair will set you back $1,500 – TechCrunch


Ive learned a lot during this pandemic. About myself, about the world. But perhaps most important of all, Ive learned the value of a good chair. In normal years Im rarely home, between work and travel, and as such its not something I gave much thought to. So naturally, I spent the first month and half cultivating some serious lower back pain.
The truth of the matter is that we have no idea how much longer were going to be dealing with all of this, and as such, I cant recommend investing in a good chair enough. You can get a pretty solid one for a couple of hundred dollars, if you know where to look. Or theres always Herman Miller.
The companys office chairs are pretty universally well-received, and theyve got a price tag to match. Even with that in mind, however, its venture into the world of gaming chair is still well, investment is certainly one way to put it. The companys collaboration with gaming peripheral mainstay Logitech is going to set you back a cool $1,500.

According to the companies, the Embody Gaming Chair was designed with help from 30 physicians, with a focus on good posture (something many gamers can likely use) and the ability to sit in one spot for an extended period of time, because, lets be real here, gamers are gonna game.
Theres padding with copper-infused particles designed to cool off the body, and pixelated support, which helps more evenly distribute the sitters weight. Herman Miller describes that bit thusly:
Thanks to a dynamic matrix of pixels, Embodys seat and back surfaces automatically conform to your bodys micro-movements, distributing your weight evenly as you sit. This reduces pressure and encourages movement, both of which are key to maintaining healthy circulation and focus.
The chair itself is made up of 42% recycled materials and is up to 95% recyclable though hopefully you wont be thinking about that for a while, given the pricing. Theres also a 12-year warranty that should let you hold onto it for a little bit longer. Which, again, will hopefully be a while at that price.
The Embody is going to be the first of a number of collaborations going forward, including a $1,300 gaming-focused desk and a $300 monitor arm. At the end of the day, your lower back will be more thankful than your bank account.
