Gamers are about to have their butts comforted in all the best ways.
It was recently announced that a new range of gaming furniture will be making its way to IKEA next year.
The massive IKEA team has taken note that gamers make up a huge portion of the global population. They also recognise that, in terms of furnishing for gamers, there isn’t much of a market for it currently.
And so, in partnership with Asus’ Republic of Gamers (ROG), IKEA will launch a series of products that will be designed specially for gamers. Teams from both companies are working together to deliver furniture that will give gamers the ideal comfort.
On the partnership, ASUS’ general manager of gaming gear and accessories, Kris Huang, says:
“ROG is thrilled to be partnering with IKEA to create the ultimate gaming lifestyle for gamers. Gamers have always dreamed of the perfect gaming space that is both comfortably functional and enables full immersion in games. With years of experience delivering innovative gaming solutions to gamers, ROG has a strong understanding of the gaming community. Together with IKEA as an expert in home furnishing, we envision that this collaboration will create synergies that empower gamers to build the gaming space they have always imagined in the comfort of their own homes”
This new range of gaming furniture is set to consist of 30 products. Exactly what they’ll be has not been announced; we’d imagine we’ll see chairs and desks amongst other items.
We’ve got a while to wait until we can get our hands (and butts) on it all though; the range will launch first in China in February 2021. It will make its way to international markets in October 2021.
