Herman Miller, in partnership with Logitech G, unveiled today its newest performance gaming chair, Vantum, centered on versatility, adaptability and purposefully built for gamers from the ground up. Vantum stays true to the research-focused spirit of the powerful partnership between Herman Miller and Logitech G, providing gamers the correct level of support throughout the various modes of gameplay for increased comfort, concentration and endurance, whether in a position of play or pause.

"As a performance-driven brand, our ultimate ambition is to unlock every player's potential through thoughtful solutions and research that solves problems, delivers results and enables meaningful change at every level of gaming," says Jon Campbell, General Manager of Gaming at Herman Miller. "The Vantum Gaming Chair is our response to the community's request for more from our partnership. It delivers the same promise of advanced ergonomics, unrivaled quality and desirability of the original Embody Gaming Chair - but now with more color options and a more accessible price point."




"Over the last 3 years, Logitech G and Herman Miller have partnered together with a shared vision of delivering high performance, ergonomic furniture solutions to gamers. We're excited to move into the next stage of our evolution with this milestone launch," says Aron Drayer, Head of Marketing Partnerships for Logitech G. "Together with Herman Miller, our shared passion and drive to give gamers the very best has continued to push our creativity and expertise forward and we couldn't be more thrilled to present the gaming community with Vantum."

At its core, the Vantum Gaming Chair supports the active-gaming-forward posture, a position proven to fuel focus and faster reaction times, two factors that play a crucial role when gaming. To achieve this, Vantum was designed to proactively place users in an active/upright position the moment they sit down, leveraging an adapted seat pad and PostureFit, which provides adjustable support to the lower back and reinforces the pelvis, preventing slouching and fatigue. To further assist gamers in ensuring they are in their proper position, numeric feedback is included on the tilt adjustments, allowing gamers to easily identify and recall their preferred settings.

One of the noticeably new characteristics of Vantum's design is the presence of a headrest. When not in an active gaming position, the adjustable headrest offers gamers maximum comfort by correctly supporting the area where the base of a player's head meets their spine. This mechanic places little or no direct pressure to the neck, allowing players to kick back and relax with ease.

"One of the patterns our teams noted during our research is that gamers require versatility," says Campbell. "A strong active posture is critical for gameplay, but having an equally supported, reclined position for moments of relaxation is key for modern gamers who not only play games but watch streams and movies, chat with friends, engage in virtual events or just need a moment to kick back after a stressful match."

To further support the reclined position, Vantum is the first gaming chair that provides a thoracic support pad, which serves to properly support the upper back, neck and head when in a relaxed position. The headrest and thoracic support work together to ensure gamers can relieve pressure buildup and regain focus as needed, especially when playing for long stretches of time.

Whether a gamer is upright immersed in a tight match, leaning back in a moment of repose, or somewhere in between, Vantum's flexible cushion and exclusive suspension material will deliver comfort and support by distributing pressure appropriately in response to any posture - helping promote balance and circulation. The seat upholstery is a 100% post-consumer recycled textile with high performance properties.

In terms of the final look of the chair, the Vantum Gaming Chair went through many rounds of revisions and ideations to ensure a gamer's needs were prioritized in both the aesthetics and appearance. "This project started with the challenge of deconstructing what the essence of a gaming chair truly is," says Campbell. "How do you make a chair feel alive and active, not slow and sedentary? How do you visually communicate through color and emotion what the actual technology and architecture of the piece are intended to do?"

The end result is an expressive, bold chair that visually and physically cradles the user while layering the supportive, technical pieces within. Visually lightweight, fluid and sculptural, the Vantum Gaming Chair perfectly marries comfort, support and an athletic expression for the modern gamer. Gamers can further customize their chair by choosing from three brilliant colors: Polar, Flare and Obsidian.

The Vantum Gaming Chair is now available at the price of $995 USD. Just like the rest of the portfolio, Vantum has been rigorously tested and built to last, backed by a 12-year warranty. The chair is made with durable, sustainable materials, including diecast aluminium and glass-filled nylon. Vantum is available for purchase at Herman Miller retail locations as well as at hermanmiller.com/gaming.

This has a mesh back but not the seat. You can clearly see the keyboard through the chair back.

I do agree about the mesh seat though. (I am a longtime owner of an original model Aeron.)

Looks like a solid update of the Embody. At that price though I can't help but think that the Steelcase Leap would be a better option for most people however.

Don't get confused, its ergonomic chair built around gaming. For those of us who spend hours at desks, a good ergonomic chair is a godsend.

Yes indeed, you should buy a better bed first. After all, one averages 8 hours per day in it, 56 hours a week.

For the typical office worker, a quality task chair is a close second purchase from a ergonomic standpoint since you are spending 40+ hours per week in it. If you work from home and game several hours a day, you might actually be spending more time in your chair than your bed.

The people who don't get the point of a decent task chair are usually below the age of 40. Trust me, once you celebrate your 40th birthday, you will start to appreciate the value of a good chair.

There was already a "cheaper version" of the Herman Miller Embody, the "Herman Miller X Logitech G".
Not cheaper price wise, but quality wise. People where complaining about sqeaking etc. :laugh: This one looks quite different than the Embody, also around 500 bucks cheaper.

:(

Mesh seat or bust...

Mesh is great in the summer, and design wise it's fancy for some. But comfort for longer sessions is mostly not there. ;)

Chairs are really a hard topic. Very different styles with their unique pros & cons. Best is really to narrow it down, order & test them yourself for a while. You spend a lot of time on them, so comfort should be your top priority. I am leaning more towards something with thick seating pads & leather for durability. Gravitating towards the "Steelcase Amia".

One can always add a cushion to a mesh seat chair. However you cannot add ventilation to a cloth or leather (either real or fake) seat. That's why the mesh seat is a superior option.

Well, as long as you can limit your total gamm/comptah use to like less than 1 hour a day, sure. Above that, your back will feel the longtime exposure to a bad chair. Period.

Yeah, I noticed, hence why I went to check, even though the seat didn't look like mesh.

If you have, or potentially have any sort of back/hip issues, do ‘future you’ a huge favor and go for a proper chair. I was able to get my Aeron from a closing office at nearly half price. I wouldn’t trade it for any piece of PC hardware or peripheral. It has alleviated a large portion of my hip issues that every chair I’ve ever owned prior had caused.

Why Dont We Have Both GIF

Then you've never sat in a good mesh chair. I have two (as I recently moved and had to get a new one) and they are both the most comfortable chair I've ever had. My weight distribution is a lot better on both on them than it has been in comparison to any other chair I've sat in, except possible the Herman Miller Aeron one ex employer had in the office, but that is also a mesh chair so...

You are of course allowed to have a different opinion here, as we've not all shaped the same and have different preferences when it comes to these things.

Best is really to narrow it down, order & test them yourself for a while.

Absolutely, just like keyboards, mice, trackballs, gamepads, etc.

One thing about mesh seats is that they are a suspension system like a hammock. In an ordinary chair, the seat is hard with some cushioning and a cover. This can lead to hard contact points.

For a mesh covered seat frame like Herman Miller Aeron, the mesh fabric is a suspension. There are no hard contact points between your pelvis and the chair. Your weight is distributed along the mesh fabric.

However it is highly unlikely you can test the chair on the hottest day of the year. That's when the mesh seat's open ventilation is more impactful.

Again, it's easy to throw a cushion onto a mesh chair. You can't poke temporary ventilation holes into a leather seat cover for the hottest days of the year.

There was already a "cheaper version" of the Herman Miller Embody, the "Herman Miller X Logitech G".
Not cheaper price wise, but quality wise. People where complaining about sqeaking etc. :laugh: This one looks quite different than the Embody, also around 500 bucks cheaper.



Mesh is great in the summer, and design wise it's fancy for some. But comfort for longer sessions is mostly not there. ;)

Chairs are really a hard topic. Very different styles with their unique pros & cons. Best is really to narrow it down, order & test them yourself for a while. You spend a lot of time on them, so comfort should be your top priority. I am leaning more towards something with thick seating pads & leather for durability. Gravitating towards the "Steelcase Amia".


Do yourself a favor and get a factory 2nd Steelcase Gesture for $300 - $400. Best high end office chair (or gaming chair) IMO at an absolute bargain of a price.
