Eoos is a studio based in Vienna that was founded in 1995 by designers Martin Bergmann, Gernot Bohmann and Harald Gründl. The name is a playful variant of Eous, one of the four chariot horses of sun god Helios, according to Greek mythology. It was the first name that resonated with the trio after they spotted it in a copy of Ovid’s Metamorphoses that just so happened to be lying around their office, chosen in part for the way a horse’s erratic jaunts evoke a designer’s irregular everyday forays into the conceptual. Eoos has won more than 70 international awards, including the Compasso d’Oro. Its Crosshatch Ottoman (2014) balances a visually light aesthetic with sturdy construction. Crosshatch works well in both living areas and office spaces. Made in U.S.A.
