The things that caught our eye dur­ing the pro­duc­tion of E307

CHAIR

You might have no­ticed a cer­tain lux­ury in where es­ports pros park their back­sides these days. The gam­ing chair has come an aw­fully long way, and while prices can be ex­tor­tion­ate, more rea­son­able mod­els can be found by those pre­pared to shop around. Noblechairs’ of­fer­ings be­gin at £299, the cost dif­fer­ence achieved by us­ing faux leather in­stead of the real thing – though it’s breath­able, which might be prefer­able for those who en­joy lengthy ses­sions on hot sum­mer days. Comfy and flex­i­ble, the only draw­back is a metal bar that sup­ports the back­rest and may, if you’re not care­ful, cause se­ri­ous harm dur­ing an oth­er­wise pain­less set-up process.

TWEETS
