Sam Son is an easy armchair with a hint of a cartoon character. 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 moldings, 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.

Magis gives you more choices—for indoors and out, for the lounge, the café, the patio, the lobby, the classroom. By combining craft with industrial process Magis products deliver beyond expectations. It makes sense, since Magis means “more than” in Latin. While delivering more, Magis uses less—material and energy—a commitment Magis shares with Herman Miller. A belief in authored design is another; Magis works with top designers from around the world, such as Michael Young who, in 2001, designed a fun and very functional doghouse. Check out all the over 200 Magis products GR Shop has to offer.
