AUGUST 22, 2020 — International gaming seat specialist Secretlab is teaming up again with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC on the world’s first gaming chair inspired by The Joker, in celebration of the most iconic villain in Gotham City.
The Secretlab ‘The Joker’ Edition chair follows on the success of the Secretlab Dark Knight Edition and the limited edition Secretlab Birds of Prey Edition seats, rounding out a trio of some of the most beloved DC Super Heroes and Villains. Launching in tandem with DC FanDome’s first ever 24-hour online global event, the Secretlab ‘The Joker’ Edition seat will give fans around the world a unique way to showcase their love for The Joker and the DC Universe.
Although Batman and The Joker are the antithesis of each other, both are titans in popular culture–neither can exist without the other. Decked out in acid green, purple and a sprinkling of lunacy, the Secretlab ‘The Joker’ Edition chair is an unorthodox counterpoint to the all-black Secretlab Dark Knight Edition seat, an avatar of chaos clashing against the Dark Knight’s sense of order.
With the Secretlab ‘The Joker’ Edition chair, Gotham’s iconic hero-villain duo is finally complete. Outfitted with all the features of the award-winning Secretlab 2020 Series, the Secretlab ‘The Joker’ Edition chair is the perfect choice for fans looking to pay tribute to the Clown Prince of Crime’s exuberant brand of anarchy while enjoying the perfect blend of both comfort and style.
The Secretlab ‘The Joker’ Edition chair honors Gotham’s ever-present jester, capturing his sinister comedic spirit with a bold, transgressive design that mirrors the criminal clown. Inspired by The Joker’s flamboyant personal style and signature suit, the chair features a rich purple seat base and searing, acid green embroidery that immortalizes his unceasing laughter. The jester’s hat is stitched onto the wings in matching purple thread, a repeating design motif that is at once chaotic and gleeful.
The chair is available to pre-order in two models: The Secretlab OMEGA and Secretlab TITAN.
Said Ian Ang, co-founder and CEO of Secretlab:
“Just like Batman, The Joker is one of the most recognizable icons in popular culture — he’s appeared in 80 years of DC comics, cartoons, movies, and games. Every superhero needs a villain, and the Secretlab ‘The Joker’ Edition chair serves as the polar opposite of the Secretlab Dark Knight Edition, both complementing and contrasting it at the same time. Outfitted with the same engineering and technology that Secretlab is known for, the Secretlab ‘The Joker’ Edition chair is a seat that befits Gotham’s greatest supervillain. You can’t think of Batman without also thinking about The Joker, and the two share a unique symbiotic relationship where neither is complete without the other. After celebrating the 80th anniversary of Batman with the Secretlab Dark Knight Edition, we knew we couldn’t miss out on paying the same tribute to The Joker.”
