On May 17th, Thermaltake released images and marketing materials showing off its collaboration with Studio F.A. Porsche. In the press release, we got our first look at the ARGENT E700 Real Leather Gaming Chair.
To celebrate this new product, Thermaltake enlisted the help of three people from the world of entertainment: basketballer Douglas Creighton, musician Tai Siao-Chun, and artist Fan Cheng-Zong. In the press release, each individual is seen sitting in a different colored ARGENT E700.
“The ARGENT E700 introduces a highly ergonomic synchro-tilt-mechanism with diverse adjustment options that perfectly supports the user’s body,” reads a product description. “All functions are cleverly integrated into a unique design. High-quality materials such as genuine leather and finely processed aluminum parts offer the player maximum comfort and style. The ARGENT E700 combines the best of both worlds – the aesthetics of a racing bucket seat with the functionality and elegance of a modern lounge or office chair.”
The ARGENT E700 currently comes in nine different colors. This product has a starting price of $1,199 on the Thermaltake website.
The Profit‘s Take:
There’s no actual gaming going on in these pictures. The chair does have a cool and sleek design, but the ads promoting it are weird. Actually, they’re worse than weird… they’re terrible. I don’t find these chairs all that interesting and a shame to have the Porsche brand associated with it.
