Secretlab has teamed up with Filipino designer Quiccs for a special limited edition gaming chair.
The multiple award-winning international chair manufacturing company based in Singapore announced on March 8, 2021, the collaboration with the renowned Filipino toy designer, graffiti artist, and illustrator Quiccs Maiquez.
The Secretlab QUICCS Edition chair has been released with only 200 units available worldwide each with a specially designed Quiccs label on the rear, a one-of-a-kind collector’s item for fans of Quiccs, and the urban vinyl style of designer toys.
Best known for his flagship TEQ63 figure, Quiccs is the first artist to be voted by fans as Artist of the Year twice in a row in 2018 and 2019 at the Designer Toy Awards (DTAs), the world’s premier accolade for toy designers. In 2019, he also bagged the Toy of the Year award at the DTAs, a testament to his popularity within the designer toy community.
Created especially for fans of Quiccs and his post-apocalyptic Bulletpunk universe, the Secretlab QUICCS Edition is the first gaming peripheral that brings together the twin passions of gaming and designer toys, combining the design language and expertise of both Secretlab and Quiccs in a one-of-a-kind product.
Customers who buy a Secretlab QUICCS Edition chair will also be able to redeem an exclusive 12-inch Secretlab MEGATEQ vinyl figure, a special edition design of Quiccs’ signature TEQ63 toy created just for this collaboration. The toy can only be obtained by purchasing the official chair.
Drawing on the unique amalgamation of hip hop, graffiti, and Japanese robots that have shaped Quiccs’ toys, the Secretlab QUICCS Edition is upholstered in white PRIME™ 2.0 PU leather, complete with segmented panels that mimic the appearance of an armored exoskeleton or mecha warrior. A pop of red on the side wings mirrors a similar patch on the MEGATEQ, adding a dash of color and vibrancy to their monochrome aesthetic.
Outfitted with all the features of the Secretlab 2020 Series, the Secretlab QUICCS Edition will equip fans with all-day comfort and allow them to complete their collection with a chair designed by their favorite award-winning artist.
“Having won Artist of the Year and Toy of the Year awards from Clutter Magazine in New York, topped off with a recent collaboration with Adidas, Quiccs is a giant among artists and toy designers internationally. It’s easy to see why fans love his toys. We’re craftsmen and lovers of good design at Secretlab, and we constantly seek out the best artists and designers to work with to challenge the status quo. With his talent and drive, Quiccs was a natural choice for yet another groundbreaking collaboration and we’re really excited to partner with him on this special project for both our fans,” said Ian Ang, co-founder and CEO of Secretlab.
“I’m always looking out for new adventures and I wouldn’t work with a brand unless I knew my fans would be excited about the final product. Secretlab is dedicated to perfection in their craft, and that’s something that really resonates with me. They are the world leader in gaming seats for a good reason and I am thrilled to be able to work with them and combine our passions. The Secretlab QUICCS Edition is definitely the first of its kind and I can’t wait to share it with my fans,” said Quiccs Maiquez.
