Back in February this year, Logitech made clear its collaboration with US-based furniture maker, Herman Miller, to design and build a gaming chair. That chair is now out in the open and its name is the Embody.
As with most other gaming chairs on the market, the Embody is a high-end, premium gaming chair with emphasis on “premium”; the chair costs a whopping US$1495 (~RM6355), but to be fair, chairs that come out Herman Miller’s assembly plants are never cheap. But at the same time, they rarely disappoint.
Regarding its design, the Embody clearly comes loaded with all the back-pampering support a chair of this calibre can provide. That, plus all the gamer-centric trimmings and tweaks, courtesy of Logitech’s G division. This includes seven points of calibration, knobs that allow chairmaker says offers “fully customisable spine alignment”, a backrest with “Pixelated support” which is basically copper-laden foam. That helps keep whoever is sitting down cool.
Around the back, the Embody’s rear is bright blue, while the rest of the chair sports the typical black tone used typically by office chairs. It also looks as if that it lacks a head rest, although it does look as though the top of the chair could flip up.
At the time of writing, it appears the Embody is only being shipped out to customers in select countries, including the US, UK, and the EU via Herman Miller. Sadly, Logitech Malaysia has yet to specify if it intends on bringing the chair into Malaysia.
