Eoos is a studio based in Vienna that was founded in 1995 by designers Martin Bergmann, Gernot Bohmann and Harald Grndl. 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 Ovids Metamorphoses that just so happened to be lying around their office, chosen in part for the way a horses erratic jaunts evoke a designers irregular everyday forays into the conceptual. Eoos has won more than 70 international awards, including the Compasso dOro. Its Crosshatch Chair (2014) balances a visually light aesthetic with sturdy construction, consisting of parachute cord precisely wrapped around a solid wooden frame and seat bottom. The chair imparts the feeling of being suspended in a cozy nest, with a slightly canted back for ample comfort and support. Crosshatch works well in both living areas and office spaces. Made in U.S.A.
