Two Singapore-based companies, gaming furniture brand Secretlab and esports organisation Paper Rex, have launched a custom-branded gaming chair.

The new chair will feature Paper Rex’s branding and colour scheme. It will be available as a limited edition drop through the team’s channels.

The new gaming chair is a result of a partnership between the two companies announced in 2023. At the time, the two brands also said that a gaming chair will be created, but provided no extra information. With the chair’s launch, Secretlab and Paper Rex shared that the initial idea was to only provide it to the players and the staff of Paper Rex, but the plan was changed to allow for a small number of chairs to reach the general public.

Paper Rex is an esports organisation most known for its success in VALORANT, where the team is the current reigning champion of VCT Pacific. Paper Rex also finished second at VALORANT Champions in 2023, and won several other regional and international tournaments, making it one of the strongest Asian teams in the game.

Apart from its competitive success, Paper Rex is also known for its brightly-coloured jersey design and overall branding. Secretlab incorporated several of these design elements into the custom-designed TITAN Evo chair. The main colour is a deep violet with bright pink segments and a large Paper Rex logo on the back

Paper Rex joins an ever-growing number of esports organisations with their own custom chair designs, and is the latest to partner with Secretlab on a chair design. The company already partners with the likes of Team Vitality, Talon, Riot Games and T1 for custom chairs. Chinese company Andaseat has recently released a gaming chair with Weibo Gaming, and G2 has worked closely with Herman Miller on a limited edition chair of its own.
