The Austrian collaborative, EOOS, views design as a poetic discipline, believing that end results should be able to accommodate changing needs and desires. EOOS, a design collaborative established in Vienna in 1995 by Martin Bergmann (b. 1963), Gernot Bohmann (b. 1968), and Harald Gründl (b. 1967), was founded after the trio graduated from the Venetian University of Applied Arts.
EOOS designs for many of the world’s best-known brands. The trio has published books on design, holds over 15 technical patents, and has won over 130 international awards, including a red dot award, a Compasso d’Oro, the German Design Award, an iF Award, and a Wallpaper* Design Award.
Today, the internationally renowned collaborative approaches complex furniture, product and shop design challenges by examining past roots in a contemporary context. Called Poetical Analysis®, EOOS’s unique process focuses on myths, rituals and intuitive expressions, creating connections that extend beyond initial perceptions.
