Logitech G, a brand of Logitech, and Herman Miller have taken the first step into the world of seating ergonomics for gamers, streamers, and esport athletes with the unveiling of a series of high performance gaming furniture and accessories, including the Embody Gaming Chair.
Together, the two companies spent nearly two years studying esport pros and players around the globe to understand their needs. ‘Prior to the in-depth research we did, we knew many gamers loved our current offering as we are constantly rated highly in almost every gamer product review,’ says Tim Straker, Chief Marketing Officer for Herman Miller. ‘The main feedback we received was they wanted more variety.’
The more research Herman Miller and Logitech did with the gaming community, the more they found that players took a variety of postures in chairs without noticing the negative impact it had on their performance and potential damage to their health over time. ‘This in-depth research convinced us that we needed to modify a current offering to improve lower back support, increase forward leaning, provide a greater ability to swivel, and better adjustments for tables and monitors,’ Tim continues. ‘The Embody Chair set the benchmark for pressure distribution, natural alignment, and support for healthy movement, so it was the perfect choice to be modified to meet these needs.’
