Nine projects have been shortlisted in the Something to Sit On competition, jointly organised by the AJ and Italian furniture company Tacchini. Intended to explore architects' skills in furniture design, the brief asked them to design an armchair that is both soft and comfortable, and suitable for the residential and contract markets. Entries were of a high standard, showing both inventiveness and solid design skills. The winning design, which will be announced at 100% Design on Thursday 21 September at 7pm, will be developed with Tacchini for launch at the Milan Furniture Fair in 2007.

The judges of the 45 entries were:

Matthew Hilton, designer;

Amanda Levete, Future Systems;

Tom Lloyd, designer, PearsonLloyd;

James Mair, Viaduct;

Luke Pearson, designer, PearsonLloyd;

Ruth Slavid, editor, AJ Specification; and

Giusi Tacchini, managing director, Tacchini Furniture.

Readers in London and the South East should look out for an invitation to the drinks reception at 100% Design in this week's issue of the AJ.
