LOS ANGELES, CA – July 23, 2020 – TSM, the premier championship esports organization, announced today that Herman Miller will be the exclusive provider of gaming chairs to be used by TSM’s elite professional players. Specifically, TSM has selected the Embody Gaming Chair, designed in partnership with Logitech G and the industry’s first truly ergonomic chair, to be used by TSM’s elite pro players when practicing and competing.
“TSM has been built on a foundation of innovation and technology,” says Leena Xu, President. Esports at TSM. “It may not be apparent, but using the right gaming chair is critical to a player’s performance and success. The Embody Gaming Chair can meet the specific individual needs of each of our players, which absolutely makes a difference when it comes to their gameplay. We designed and built the TSM Performance Center to be the facility of the future, and the Embody chair is an essential part of the health and wellness-focused environment we created for our players.”
"Herman Miller and Logitech G spent months asking us, as players, what we needed most in a chair, and what resulted was the Embody,” says Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg, legendary League of Legends player and part-owner of TSM’s LoL team. “Ensuring that the chair we use is comfortable, offers proper support, and helps us play at optimal performance is critical to our success. We only use the best products when we play, and the Embody is no exception."
Over a period of two years, TSM players worked with Herman Miller product design specialists, giving feedback about their specific chair needs, specifically voicing the desire for a new kind of chair, one that was able to fit their individual anatomy and body type. In addition, players expressed the need for a chair that valued function over aesthetics, as many shared that sitting in the wrong kind of chair can not only be the difference between winning and losing, it can also cause physical injury. What emerged from Herman Miller's intense research was the Embody, gaming's first truly customizable chair, which ensures proper alignment, balance, and comfort for gamers.
TSM is an elite, holistic gaming brand composed of championship esports teams, world-class influencers, and gaming strategy platforms that level up the casual player all the way to the professional. A platform of champions, TSM seeks to provide maximum value through the competitive excellence of our teams and the creation of exciting, educational, and entertaining content that delivers the ultimate esports and gaming fan experience.
