Logitech G and Herman Miller jointly introduced the Vantum gaming chair. It’s available to order now for $995, which is a significant price difference to the $1,500 Embody, the partnership’s first gaming chair that I spent many hours on in mid-2020. While the Embody was a gamer-friendly take on a pre-existing design in Herman Miller’s chair catalog, the Vantum appears to be a completely new chair. It comes in multiple colors (white, red, and black), each with a 12-year warranty.
Like the Embody, it’s hard to say exactly what kind of role Logitech G played in the chair’s design, perhaps aside from some of the details. Anyway, Herman Miller’s Jon Campbell, the general manager of the gaming division, said in a press release that the adjustable headrest and thoracic support pillow (supporting your upper back, neck and head in a relaxed position) are the greatest. new features offered by the Vantum. Herman Miller even claims that this is the first gaming chair to offer a thoracic support cushion.
As for build quality, the companies shared that it’s made from die-cast aluminum and glass-filled nylon, and the seat cover is made from 100 percent post-consumer recycled textiles with “high performance properties.” I can’t confirm how it looks and feels, as Logitech didn’t offer the chance to try it out beforehand. But if it’s anything like the Embody or even a lower sport in terms of quality and comfort (which I expect, given the price difference), it should still spoil gamers looking for a high-end seat upgrade. Just weigh the cost in case it comes out of the same budget used on the RTX 4090 graphics card.
