Secretlab and Riot Games today revealed the world’s first official League of Legends
Champions chairs, a designer capsule collection inspired by the magic-filled lands of Ionia and virtual pop girl group sensation K/DA. The Secretlab League of Legends Champions Collection builds on Secretlab’s longstanding partnership with Riot Games and commemorates the global phenomenon that is League of Legends, which celebrated its 10th anniversary last year.
It combines the lasting comfort Secretlab seats are known for with League of Legends’ vibrant and explosive art style, representing the most ambitious and collaborative project between Secretlab and Riot Games to date. The Secretlab League of Legends Champions Collection joins Riot’s exclusive selection of official League of Legends merchandise, and is one of the few ways gamers and collectors will be able to obtain a piece of the League of Legends universe.
Already the chair of choice at Riot Games’ premier global tournaments and top-tier pro circuits, including the World Championship and the LCS and LEC, Secretlab is Riot Games’ top pick to support both elite League of Legends athletes and the millions of players around the world.
League of Legends Esports has become the most popular global esport, hitting a record-breaking viewership of 21.8 million AMA (Average Minute Audience) during the 2019 World Championship Final. Secretlab’s Champions collection is the first of its kind in the game’s over 10-year history — it includes pieces that bring to life fan-favorite Ionian champions Akali, Ahri, and Yasuo, and a special purple-and-gold K/DA Edition colorway, based on Akali’s pop star incarnation as a member of K/DA.
To create this one-of-a-kind capsule, Secretlab’s in-house design team worked closely with League of
Legends’ character artists to realize each champion in stunning detail, from the carefully-selected color palette to gorgeous custom embroidery and subtle motifs on the side wings. They studied the gameplay, lore, and original character design of each champion, identifying what gave them their unique character and how these elements could be applied to Secretlab’s signature silhouette.
The Secretlab League of Legends seats are styled to instantly evoke their individual champions — in order to achieve this, Secretlab experimented with different materials, textures, and cutting-edge print and embroidery techniques, eventually arriving at bold designs that deliver never-before-seen interpretations of some of the game’s most iconic champions.
The Secretlab League of Legends Champions Collection will let gamers immerse themselves in Ionia and the rich lore of League of Legends, allowing fans who main Akali, Ahri, and Yasuo to step into the shoes of their favorite champion and become the true embodiment of their play style.
Featuring all the upgrades of the award-winning Secretlab 2020 Series, the Secretlab League of Legends Champions Collection is primed to take center stage in any setup and offer unique and timeless statement pieces to League of Legends fans looking to level up their experience of the game in world-class comfort. The Secretlab League of Legends Champions Collection is available in two models: The Secretlab OMEGA and Secretlab TITAN.1
