New Style Design: inspired by high-end race cars
Designed by Studio F. A. Porsche, the ARGENT E700 Real Leather Gaming Chair combines the best of both worlds – the aesthetics of a racing bucket seat with the functionality and elegance of a modern lounge or office chair. The design ingenuities are inspired by high-end race cars and translated to a gaming chair. Firstly, the side integrated aluminum alloy handles are designed for tilting and elevating. The left-side handle can adjust the seatback up to 126°, and the right-side handle can alter seat height in between 16.1″ – 20.8″ (41 – 53 cm).
Furthermore, the seated part features a built-in wire-control mechanism that guarantees superior functionality and gives a neat overall appearance. In addition, the E700 features a class-4 gas spring for height adjustments, a premium grade 5-star aluminum alloy base, and large 3″ caster wheels covered by PU to ensure stability, reliability, and safety. Lastly, located at the front middle of the chair is a Thermaltake logo plate in polished metallic silver aluminum finish, which is both unique and sophisticated.
Iconic Colors: light up your space
On the foundation of functionality, Thermaltake adds another exciting addition to the ARGENT E700 Real Leather Gaming Chair by offering a whole range of multicolored options, including Glacier White, Flaming Orange, Ocean Blue, and Racing Green offering vivid colors and a highly scratch-resistant surface with minimal color fade. Storm Black and Space Gray represents the finest quality through a subtle and elegant matte finish, and the calm tone is simple but classic. Despite the color, a refined chair can light up your space and bring ambiance to your gaming stations, and bling to your office. Users can create their styles with these unique colors no matter the situation.
Superlative Comfort: For a satisfying user experience
The ARGENT E700 Real Leather Gaming Chair is fully covered by genuine real leather with 1 – 1.1 mm thickness complimented with delicate stitching over the entire seat and headrest. The seated area is constructed with perforated leather for extreme heat dissipation and ventilation. High-density molded foam provides firm body support while maintaining a sedentary posture and even weight distribution. Additionally, the unique one-piece curved-back chair design allows users to achieve full-body immersion by either sitting straight up or relaxing in four lockable angles, 107°, 113°, 119°, 126°. In comparison, the quad-directional armrest adjustments provide support for the forearm and help to relieve wrist pressure.

About Studio F. A. Porsche
Design must be honest – these four words spoken by our founder, Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, get to the heart of our thinking. They mean that design is not simply decoration or superficial beautification to us, but rather the perfect symbiosis of form and function. This can only be achieved once you have fully grasped the functionality of a product.
When the studio was founded in Zell am See in 1972, F. A. Porsche already gave the evidence for this philosophy: the design of the Porsche 911. It’s an unembellished, timeless design, which embodies the technical essence of the sports car like a perfectly tailored suit. A passionate tribute to motion – even standing still.
Our fascination with purist design still motivates us today. It permeates all the areas in which Studio F. A. Porsche designs objects for the 21st century: in product design, transport and space design.
