Twain Now Available from Magis

Designed by Konstantin Grcic and first presented at Salone del Mobile 2023, today we are happy to announce that Twain is ready to be shipped to you!


Inspired by the Safari chair, Twain offers comfort and practicality altogether.

The seat and backrest in self-supporting fabric are hooked to a frame of interlocking spindles in solid beech – held in tension only by a strap and ratchet.

Thanks to the leather armrests, seat cushion and backrest cover, this armchair grants an experience of maximum relaxation.

The Twain armchair is also available with a matching footrest.


The interlocking structure, free from glues and rivets, and the complete disassemblability allow us to reduce considerably the packaging of Twain when shipping it.

This construction method also makes it easier to prolong the product’s life, by replacing individual parts when necessary.

Finally, at the end of life, the user can easily separate each material for disposal.

“Today, we should think in concepts like that: little material, maximum performance.” –Konstantin Grcic

Twain comes in eight versions, two of which were developed in collaboration with Dutch designer Hella Jongerius.

These feature a draped two-sides cover which creates a connection between seat and backrest.
