noblechairs has announced the noblechairs EPIC Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team Edition Gaming Chair, which will immediately be available through noblechairs’ network of global partners. As the name suggests, noblechairs is collaborating with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team to make the chair, having announced their licensing partnership in 2019.
The 2021 edition of the chair was designed in Germany as a luxury gaming chair for F1 enthusiasts. They’ve designed the chair with high-end hybrid materials that have a breathable surface structure. The material, which noblechairs describe as “innovative,” has superior airflow meant to hold up after a long sit, which helps reduce sweating and “thereby eliminates any sticky or unpleasant feeling.” The material is also designed in such a way that it provides ventilation without perforation. It’s tear-proof, durable, easy to clean, and it’s resistant to fire, abrasion, and hydrolysis.
The chair is optimized for long computer sessions, rated by the company for about nine hours of usage. It has an adjustable seat height and can support up to 264 lb (120 kg), and it comes with bolsters with carbon elements. Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team logos are embroidered on the headrest. These have a matching silver aluminum base with nylon casters, which have details rendered in PETRONAS green. The chair also comes with neck and lumbar pillows embroidered with the team’s logo.
“In conjunction with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team we are thrilled to announce our continued partnership with the release of the 2021 noblechairs Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team Edition Chair. Together, we’ve been able to design and create a chair that can be the centerpiece of any room and offer that championship performance you’d expect. With more to come, we can’t wait to share more with our fans across the world in 2021.”Toni Sonn, CEO of noblechairs
