In CEOO, EOOS has created a particularly powerful and chiseled structure to place in a corporate office – a sort of flying command center for decision makers that defines the desk as a status symbol in a hierarchy, though with gentle irony. All the spots that
will frequently be touched by the user are covered in soft leather,
a harmonious complement to
high-quality materials such as oceanic walnut and Corian surfacing. Moving the leather cover causes a well-concealed "secret compartment" to open at right angles to the work surface. All sockets are hidden from view by leather molding, to prevent unsightly cable tangles. Among other distinctions, CEOO won an iF Product Design Award in 2008.
