Supported on four stilt legs, the armchair features a softly suspended seat shell between a giant, horseshoe-shaped element, the chair’s characteristic armrest and backrest. 

Made from two different rotational mouldings, the armchair combines a rigid plastic for its base and a more elastic polymer for the upper part. The exaggerated size of the armrest and backrest provides comfort and support and creates a protective space for sitting. Sam Son comes in four different colours and is suitable for both indoors and outdoors.


Konstantin Grcic

Konstantin Grcic was born in 1965, and trained as a cabinet maker at The John Makepeace School (Dorset, England) before studying Design at the Royal College of Art in London. Since setting up his own practice, Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design (KGID), in Munich in 1991, he has developed furniture, products and lighting for some of the leading companies in the design field. His more renowned clients include Authentics, BD Ediciones, ClassiCon, Flos, Magis, Mattiazzi, Muji, Nespresso, Plank, Serafino Zani, Thomas-Rosenthal and Vitra. He has created a number of limited-edition pieces for Galerie Kreo in Paris since 2004. Konstantin Grcic defines function in human terms, combining strict forms with considerable mental acuity and humour. Each of his products expresses a careful research into the history of design and architecture, and his passion for technology and materials. Known for his pared-down pieces, Grcic is often called a minimalist, but the designer himself prefers to speak of simplicity. Many of his products have received international design awards, such as the prestigious Compasso d`Oro for his MAYDAY lamp (Flos) in 2001 and his MYTO chair (Plank) in 2011. Works by Konstantin Grcic are part of the permanent collections of the world´s most important design museums (including MoMA/New York and Centre Georges Pompidou/Paris).


Established in 1976, Magis combines design, technological innovation and a 100% Made in Italy ethos to create high quality products.
