Ben Addy, of Moxon Architects, has won the AJ Tacchini competition 'Something to Sit On' for the design of an armchair.

Addy's design, called 'Mull' will be developed as a prototype with Tacchini and will be taken to the Milan Furniture Fair in 2007 for market testing.

Addy, who set up his practice in 2004, is one of the AJ Corus 40 Under 40 architects, and is currently working on two projects on the island of Mull, after which he named his chair.

There were 44 entries to the 'Something to Sit On' competition. The nine shortlisted entries, shown in AJ14.09.06, are also on display on the AJ stand at 100% Design at Earls Court until Sunday 24 September.
