Take a seat: Nissan sketches ultimate esports gaming chairs

Concept gaming seats inspired by Armada, GT-R, and Nissan LEAF
Ultimate esports gaming chair - Nissan GT-R NISMO

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nissan celebrates ‘National Video Games Day' with concept esports gaming chair sketches inspired by the Armada SUV, GT-R NISMO sportscar and all-electric Nissan LEAF.

With video gaming and esports now some of the fastest-growing activities on the planet, Nissan has invested in the trend. Earlier this year, the automaker inked partnerships with two of the most popular gaming teams in the world, Faze Clan and OpTic Gaming.

As makers of the Zero Gravity Seat found on many Nissan vehicles, Nissan applied model-specific technologies and conveniences into the three whimsical chair concepts.

Esports players spend hours perfecting their skills, and gaming rigs are an essential part of each player's identity. However, esports players often have to choose between aesthetics and comfort – but Nissan's chairs could offer both. With decades of experience in seating design and comfort, Nissan's three conceptual designs are sure to pique the interest of gamers across the globe.

Nissan GT-R NISMO: Excitement, High Performance, and Unparalleled Refinement

  • Inspired by Nissan's most iconic vehicle  
  • Constructed from lightweight carbon fiber and aluminum
  • Shaped like a racing seat for ultimate performance
  • Features red leather and synthetic suede seating surfaces

Nissan Armada: Elegant, Premium Comfort

  • Platinum Reserve black and brown leather-appointed captain's chair

Nissan LEAF: Simply Amazing

Currently, Nissan has no plans to build the chairs but will gauge public reaction and is asking fans to vote for their favorite via the brand's twitter @NissanUSA.
