EOOS is active in product, furniture and architectural design. To date, the firm holds 15 technical patents and has been the recipient of over 70 international awards, including the 2004 Compasso d’Oro, a highly esteemed Italian prize for design, for the Kube, manufactured by MatteoGrassi. The designers of EOOS created the FILO table and FILO chair for Bene, among other items.

The Austrian design trio EOOS conceives of design as a poetic discipline balanced between the archaic and the high-tech. EOOS believes that sustainability and the sensible use of materials and resources are a fundamental aspect of the design process. And mythology is not just the source of the company’s name – Eoos was the name of the steed that pulled Zeus’ sun chariot. Martin Bergmann, Gernot Bohmann and Harald Gründl begin all of their projects with a poetic analysis, using ritual, myths and intuitive pictures as the starting point for delving into the design process. Only then do they begin sketching.

Martin Bergmann was born in 1963 in Lienz (East Tyrol), Gernot Bohmann in 1968 in Krieglach (Steiermark) and Harald Gründl in 1967 in Vienna. They founded EOOS in 1995 after completing their degrees at the University of Applied Arts Vienna. EOOS is active in furniture design, product design and brand spaces for clients including Adidas, Alessi, Armani, Bene, Bulthaup, Dedon, Duravit, MatteoGrassi, Walter Knoll and Zumtobel.

Spaces are like tools that people can use to realize their needs.
