The designers behind EOOS see design as a poetic discipline, and they approach each project from a perspective of “poetical analysis.” That means they begin with a driving word, image, or ritual, and the concept then takes its natural path as they both follow and guide it. The results can be surprising. It’s that twist on expectations that’s part of the EOOS philosophy of “authentic objects” as they seek to blend construction and poetic expression.
