Logitech and Herman Miller team up to make, erm, 'gamer furniture'

Games hardware and accessory firm Logitech is partnering with design company Herman Miller to make furniture for gamers.

In a post on its website, Herman Miller says that the fruits of this collaboration will be coming out in spring 2020 and that this will be primarily for esports players. A press release on the news also talks about how pro-gamers and streamers need "the right gear to perform at their best for long periods of time" much like real athletes.

"Logitech G is committed to creating the best gear for gamers," the company's CMO Peter Kingsley said.

"We make that possible through a unique collaboration process between our design and engineering teams, partners and our customers to translate needs and capabilities into products that gamers love. Herman Miller was the obvious choice for us to partner with given their more than 100 years of expertise. Together we will deliver amazing products with advanced ergonomics, comfort and performance that gamers deserve."

Herman Miller's CMO Tim Straker added: “At Herman Miller, we have a rich history of designing solutions to support people wherever they live and work. We’re excited to combine our ergonomic, research-driven approach with Logitech G’s excellence in technology and innovation. Together, we’ll develop high-quality solutions that provide gamers and esports athletes with the utmost support and comfort.”
