The 2023 League of Legends World Championship begins on October 10. As hype builds for the event, there’s renewed interest in Secretlab’s League of Legends gaming chairs. Secretlab first released Yasuo, Ahri, and Akali chairs in 2020. Now there are 10 LoL character designs in the collection. ChairsFX visited Secretlab’s showroom to get up-close photos. This article presents every Secretlab x League of Legends collab chair available in 2023.
In early 2019, Secretlab signed a multi-year partnership with Riot Games(1), joining Mastercard and Alienware as official Riot partners.
A Riot spokesperson explained the deal. “The best League of Legends athletes require the best equipment. Secretlab’s chairs offer seating optimized for peak performance and comfort.”
At first, the deal was for Secretlab to provide chairs for LOL tournaments (LCS, Mid-Season Invitational, World Championships). In mid-2020, Secretlab started adding LoL character chairs.
This article runs through the collection chronologically. It starts with the first LoL character chairs released in 2020, and ends with the Jhin edition mid-2023 release:
- Yasuo: blue whirlwind effects
- Ahri: a maroon base with white foxtails
- Akali: stealthy dark olive with a vibrant dragon
- K/DA Pop Stars: a hip-hoppy dark base with royal purple and golden accents
- K/DA All Out: shimmering iridescence — like the K/DA All Out EP.
- Viego: a brooding, misty tribute to the Ruined King.
- Miss Fortune: a charismatic color palette with Shock & Awe embroidery.
- Pyke: an ode to the brutal mariner with thoughtful detailing.
- Jinx: a candy-colored tribute to the Arcane heroine.
- Jhin: connotes elegant brutality with regal accents and romantic embellishments.

League of Legends Ionia Chairs (2020)
Secretlab released the Ionia collection in August 2020(2). It contains three models paying homage to three popular Champions.
Yasuo Gaming Chair: Blue Whirlwind
Yasuo is a Samurai who cuts down his enemies with a katana. In tight spots, his Steel Tempest ability sends out a whirlwind to fling enemies airborne. Secretlab’s Yasuo gaming chair has a deep navy blue base with Yasuo’s katana embroidered on the front.
The sides and back of the chair show the intricate embroidery of Yasuo’s Steel Tempest. This wind and cloud artwork is done in the traditional ukiyo-e style of Yasuo’s armor.
You can sense that effect when posing the Yasuo chair at a desk. The intricate artwork and blue palette gives off a serene, calming effect. When we feel calm is when we dare to take risks. This is why color psychologists hype blue as a calming, creative color.
Also available in small ($624) and XL ($674) sizes.
Ahri Chair: Mesmerizing Foxfire
Ahri’s character is based on the kumiho, a creature from Korean folklore. A kumiho is a nine-tailed fox with shapeshifting powers. It can transform into a beautiful woman to seduce males and eat their livers.
Ahri manipulates the emotions of her enemies to devour their souls. For instance, her Charm spell is a blown kiss that forces enemies harmlessly towards her for termination. The Ahri chair also mesmerizes like a blown kiss.
From a distance, its decadent wine-red base with white accents gives off stylish, regal air. As you get closer, details emerge. Ahri’s Fox-Fire attack is embroidered on the front.
On the back is a white embroidered depiction of Ahri’s nine foxtails. LoL fans will instantly recognize the embellishments as a tribute to Ahri. Non-Lol fans may perceive this as a sexy yet subdued design with impressive detailing on the seat and side wings.
Titan Evo Ahri chairs are also available in small ($624) and XL ($674) sizes.
Akali Gaming Chair: A Stealthy Assassin
Akali is a rogue assassin wielding a kunai blade and throwing daggers. The Akali gaming chair reflects her stealthy style with a black leather base and textured olive-green side wings.
Embroidered on the front of the chair, find Akali’s kunai blade and a throwing dagger. On the other side, a sprawling multicolored dragon covers the entire backrest.
Like an assassin, this chair blends into a room, rather than standing out. Only upon close inspection are the intricate details revealed.
Titan Evo Akali chairs are also available in small ($624) and XL ($674) sizes.
K/DA Collection (2020)
In the LoL game, “K/DA” refers to a player’s kills, deaths, and assists. It’s also the name of a virtual pop star girl group. The Pop Stars edition was released along with the Ionia chairs. A month later, when K/DA released an EP titled All Out, Secretlab released an All Out gaming chair.
K/DA Pop Stars Gaming Chair
In 2018, Riot Games repackaged four LOL champions into the virtual pop music group K/DA. The debut single song Pop Stars was intended to promote the 2018 LOL Finals. Beyond the Finals, it became a smash hit that turned K/DA into a global phenomenon.
Secretlab’s original K/DA gaming chair pays tribute to Akali’s iconic look in the Pop Stars song. The chair gives off a hip-hop vibe with a black leather base with purple diamond-stitched wings.
Golden color accents complement the purple, as does the K/DA logo embroidered on the front of the chair. Since most Akali skins in the game have a dragon, the Pop Stars chair does as well.
On the back of the chair, find a brilliant golden dragon embroidered in stunning detail. The overall effect (like many Secretlab chairs) is sleek and classy, with splashes of color.
Beyond its obvious appeal to K/DA fans, that also makes it a striking option for general users. If you find plain executive-styled gaming chairs too boring, keep the K/DA Pop Stars chair in mind.
Titan Evo Pop Stars chairs are also available in small ($624) and XL ($674) sizes.
K/DA All Out Gaming Chair
After a 2-year hiatus, K/DA returned in 2020 with a fresh new look and musical style. The music videos brought K/DA’s visual concepts to life with fractal embroidery and iridescent accents.
Those aspects are reflected in this crisp and modern design. The K/DA All Out gaming chair comes with a black PU leather base and embroidered accents. From a distance, it looks like a contemporary executive chair.
A closer look reveals stunning detail with some surprising effects. On the front of the backrest are four icons representing each K/DA member. There is Ahri the Queen, Evelynn the Diva, Kai’Sa the Dancer, and Akali the Rebel.
The backrest has the group’s name with more fractals and stunning iridescent shapes. If you reflect sunlight against the backrest fractals, they come alive with radiant rainbow reflections!
K/DA All Out chairs are also available in small ($624) and XL ($674) sizes.
Ruination Collection (2021)
In July, game patch 11.14 saw several League of Legends champions fall under the spell of the Black Mist. As the story goes, in trying to resurrect his dead wife, Viego becomes a powerful living wraith.
Black Mist pours from a broken heart as he wields the Blade of the Ruined King. The mist is a prison of souls, trapping any being it touches into his service. To celebrate this release, Secretlab released a trio of designs:
Viego Gaming Chair: Ruined King Tribute
Viego is the “Ruined King”. He wields the Blade of the Ruined King and controls the sinister Black Mist that permeates the Shadow Isles.
The League of Legends Viego Edition pays tribute. It’s a dark upholstered chair with intricate detailing and diamond-stitched side wing patterns.
On the backrest, find the Ruined King’s crown against menacing wisps of black mist. On the front is the Blade of the Ruined King, embroidered in brilliant green. Combined, these elements give off a moody, malevolent feel — like the Ruined King himself.
Titan Evo Viego chairs are also available in small ($624) and XL ($674) sizes.
Miss Fortune Chair: Swashbuckler
As a child, Sarah Fortune lost her mother to pirate attackers. After moving to Bilgewater, she sought vengeance as a bounty hunter. By age 16, she had parlayed her skills and feminine charms into her own ship and crew.
She took on rogue ganglords until Viego gave her new powers. Then, she formed the most powerful pirate empire in history. The Miss Fortune gaming chair reflects her pre-Ruination look in rich red leatherette.
Sarah’s pistols (named ‘Shock’ and ‘Awe’) are embroidered on the front of the chair. On the back, a wisp of smoke serves notice that Shock and Awe are locked and loaded.
In contrast to the brooding Viego chair, this model’s classy palette and charismatic embellishments give it a more positive, upbeat feel.
Miss Fortune chairs are also available in small ($624) and XL ($674) sizes.
Pyke Gaming Chair: Ode To Bilgewater
Pyke was once a renowned harpooner from the slaughter docks of Bilgewater. When swallowed by a gigantic jaull-fish, his captain abandoned him. Instead of dying, Pyke returned with supernatural powers and a taste for vengeance.
He began stalking profiteers as the Bloodharbor Ripper. Anyone who made money by exploiting others became a target. But after the Ruined King’s return, Pyke turned to benevolence.
Secretlab’s League of Legends Pyke Edition shares his story with rich detail. The chair’s side wings are decorated with the distinctive scales of a jaull-fish.
Embroidered on the front of the chair is Pyke’s Bone Skewer weapon against maroon accents. Artwork on the back of the chair shows a closeup of his Bone Skewer against the dark waters of Bilgewater Bay.
Verdict: fits between the somber Viego and upbeat Miss Fortune chairs. Light accents and intricate detailing offset the menacing dark base color and Bone Skewer. Like Pyke, it connotes depth, danger, and benevolent strength with a single glance.
Pyke Titan Evo chairs are also available in small ($624) and XL ($674) sizes.
Single LoL Chair Releases
A few months after the Ionia collection dropped, Secretlab released the Jinx edition LoL chair. After taking a break in 2022, Secretlab dropped the stunning Jhin edition in mid-2023.
Jinx Gaming Chair: Candied Chaos (2021)
LoL champion Jinx has enjoyed a big push in 2021. Recently, she made her debut as the first LOL star to cross over to Fortnite. Then, she assumed a lead role in the Netflix LoL cartoon Arcane.
Secretlab’s Jinx edition gaming chair celebrates the character’s emergence. Its tri-color design makes it (arguably) the most striking LoL. A black leatherette base meets hot-pink, candy-striped accents spiked with teal-embroidered detailing.
On the back, wisps of gunfire show as textures within the leather itself. Over the top is a massive embroidered depiction of Jinx’s rocket launcher Fishbones.
The black base makes it easy to integrate this chair into most workspaces. Meanwhile, the colorful detailing adds pop. Even if you’re not an LoL fan, this is a stimulating but not overwhelming design. Expect it to blend while adding character to a workspace.
Available from Secretlab in North America, the EU and UK, Oceania, Singapore, and Malaysia.
LoL Jhin Chair: Deadly Romance (2023)
Jhin is an assassin who treats his murder as art. His steel cane/ gun is his paintbrush; each blast creates works of artistic brutality. Secretlab captures his gruesome theater with a sophisticated color palette and rich detailing.
The front of the chair shows off his theater mask he wears on the job. Golden side panels and suede scarlet wings pay homage to his assassin’s garb.
The back side of the chair adds an artistic air to the dynamic. Despite the murderous lore, its color combinations and backrest artwork give this chair a posh, romantic feel.
The Jhin edition is also available in an XL size for $674.
League of Legends Lumbar Pillows
The Titan Evo chair comes with a robust 4-way adjustable integrated lumbar. But Secretlab also offers League of Legends lumbar pillows to pair with a chair. Do you need one? Maybe.
If the seat is too deep, the seat’s lip will touch the back of your knees. Adding a lumbar support fixes this by adding a few inches between your spine and the backrest.
Also, some people struggle to get the integrated lumbar set right. In comparison, Secretlab’s lumbar pillows are foolproof. The premium memory foam compresses against your body weight with ease. At the same time, it fills your lower back with the perfect amount of pressure.
There’s no special configuration needed. Simply chuck the pillow behind you and lean back! If this sounds like something you need, Secretlab has four LoL lumbar pillows.
Beyond functional merits, these pillows are soft, squishy, and super-cute. Even if you don’t need a pillow for functional reasons, it has appeal for aesthetic reasons also.
As a bonus, these pillows provide a big lumbar support upgrade for any gaming chair. So if your existing chair’s lumbar support isn’t up to scratch, replace it and prosper! All pillows are the same price. Choose from Tibbers, Teemo, Yuumi, and Poro designs.
Conclusion: LoL-Themed Ergonomics
The cutting-edge Secretlab Titan Evo functionally beats every other gaming chair on the market. However, Secretlab designers are aware that building a personalized setup is one of the most exciting projects for many gamers(3).
To that end, Secretlab’s League of Legends gaming chairs are among its most detailed. This is because of the rich game lore designers can tap into. The entire game is built on magic and mythology.
Each character has an elaborate backstory and several potential redemption arcs. To flush out their stories, Secretlab worked directly with Riot designers to bring each design to life(2).
The result is a 10-chair Titan Evo collection with superb ergonomics and stunning LoL designs. Even so, choosing a fancy design is only the start of your own gaming chair story.
After choosing a design, the next chapter involves making the best use of your Titan Evo chair’s ergonomic features. This means mastering active and passive neutral sitting techniques while working your back muscles in adequate amounts.
Using proper technique will then give you the best of both worlds: physical comfort from the ergonomics, plus psychological delight from the stunning designs. Follow these best practices to ensure the best results:
