Herman Miller and Logitech Join Forces to Save Your Aching Gamer Butt

Herman Miller is known for some of the most comfortable and expensive office chairs you can buy. The company’s extensive research into the ergonomics of a good chair has served it well. Logitech is no stranger to ergonomics either and specializes in gaming peripherals. Together the two are promising to make the best gaming furniture you probably can’t afford.

There’s a reason that Herman Miller ranks not one, but two entries in WireCutter’s guide to the best office chairs. The company makes incredibly comfortable chairs that won’t leave you sore and hating your back later. The chairs are also long-lasting and durable. Herman Miller chairs aren’t cheap, but if you can scrape the money together to buy one, it’ll likely last you a lifetime.

Logitech might not seem like the first company you’d imagine to partner with a chair company, but it isn’t the first time the two companies have partnered up. And Logitech has a strong background in both ergonomic devices and gaming-focused peripherals. That latter bit is knowledge Herman Miller distinctly lacks; it specializes in traditional office furniture.

The two companies announced a partnership today to “research, design, and manufacture the next generation high-performance furniture solutions for gamers.” What exactly that means, we can’t be certain.

We’re guessing the partnership will bear high-end gaming chairs that we can only hope don’t look like something ripped from a Nascar vehicle. But, while Herman Miller made a point to mention its chair background several times, it’s ultimately promising “high-performance furniture,” which could be any number of things.

No matter what it is, we can guess one particular detail about the final product: expensive. Time will tell if the Herman Miller X Logitech Aerith Gaming chair (yes we made up that name) is worth the cost.
