Herman Miller has set the precedence for office chairs and is also steadily building dominance in the gaming world with gaming-specific versions of the popular Embody (in partnership with Logitech G), Aeron and Sayl chairs. Now the popular and trusted ergonomic office furniture maker has struck another partnership with Logitech for a winning gaming chair design that will be hard to ignore.
Herman Miller x Logitech G Vantum Gaming Chair is the first fully gaming-centric chair by the Michigan-based manufacturer. Just for the records, this is also the first ever gaming chair out there with a thoracic support pad (for upper back, neck and head support) which adds to the USP. To top it off, the chair costs considerably less at just $995 in three color options – Polar, Flare and Obsidian. Stack it to the duo’s first collaborative creation, the Herman Miller X Logitech G Embody Gaming Chair that debuted in 2020 for a price tag of $1,500.

Vantum is tailored for long gaming sessions to keep the gamers in an “active/upright position the moment they sit down.” This is possible with the custom seat pad and PostureFit’s extra adjustable lower back support. Thereby preventing slouching to reduce fatigue in hot game action.
When you are taking a break from all the shooting or intense racing, the chair supports the head where it meets the spine via the adjustable headrest. Clearly, we can see that the chair has gaming ergonomics in mind, and created to offer support during different stages of play. According to Jon Campbell, General Manager of Gaming at Herman Miller, their team shifted keen focus to the versatile requirements of gamers. Hence, an equally supported reclined position for times when watching movies, chatting with buddies or amid virtual events is important for an ergonomic chair.
The chair has a flexible cushion and special suspension material for balanced pressure no matter what the posture is. This ensures maximum comfort and support for breathable circulation. HM has left no stone unturned when it comes to fabric durability and the glass-filled nylon frame. The Polyurethane foam headrest and seat cushion are made out of 100 percent recycled polyester fabric.
