When locked in, both casual players and professional gamers sit for extended periods of time while gaming. Often, the negative effects of sitting (back and neck pain, tension headaches, and pinched nerves, among other symptoms) can be felt in just a few hours. These symptoms are not only a source of stress, but also a distraction. Thankfully, the adverse effects of sitting are easily relieved with an ergonomic gaming chair. Sleek, supportive, and updated in cool new colorways, Herman Miller’s gaming chairs offer unparalleled ergonomic benefits.

Herman Miller ergonomic gaming chairs


The short answer is: Absolutely. Think about it as an investment in your long-term health. From the moment you sit down in a Herman Miller gaming chair, you can feel the difference superior support makes. An ergonomic chair can transform the way you feel during (and after) an hours-long gaming session.

The best ergonomic gaming chairs deliver total support and premium comfort. They’re designed to alleviate stress on your body—from your head and neck down to your feet. Ergonomic gaming chairs are particularly good for your back because the seat shape allows your hips to open, your knees to drop, and your spine to rest in its natural S-curve. This means you’re supporting your own body weight in a neutral position, subtly engaging your muscles and strengthening your back and core while you sit. If you’re not playing from an ergonomic gaming chair, you’re likely putting unnecessary strain on your body, not to mention inhibiting your best play. Sharpen your competitive edge with a gaming chair from Herman Miller.


Most ergonomic gaming chairs have adjustable features that allow you to fine-tune the chair to your body. Players should look for a gaming chair with these specs:

  • Lumbar support
  • Height adjustment feature
  • Adjustable armrests
  • Swivel seat
  • Adjustable recline
  • Casters
  • Breathable materials

Long hours of competitive play are no match for Herman Miller’s gaming chairs. Discover which one is right for you.
