The architecture of the EOOS is radical in design. The elements have been stripped back to their bare essentials, with each serving its purpose precisely and elegantly.  The daybed that lives twice. Cool and sensual, like the stars of Alfred Hitchcock's cult films. A design whose originality lies in this dual identity. The lustre of the metal and the opacity of the leather. The linearity of the structure and the softness of the cushioning. The technology of its mechanism and the craftsmanship of its tailored stitching. The ability to transform itself from a sofa into a bed with a simple rotation of the backrest.  Vertigo’s ideal habitat is also twofold: the executive office, where it lends itself to short, relaxing breaks thanks to its compact size, linear design and ergonomics, but also the home, where the sofa transforms into a bed to offer guests a place to sleep without compromising comfort and design.  The daybed brings the technicality of its mechanism to an extreme, baring it without compromise to become a dry and aesthetic element which is completely exposed. The tubular structure in a sophisticated gunmetal grey finish is the result of thorough mechanical engineering research. The complex system of levers and joints makes its movement fast and precise. Simply grasp the handle under the seat and push it down, then pull out the bar on the back: the mechanism unfolds with a pivot motion to arrange Vertigo in its bed configuration.  The slender yet supremely comfortable volumes lie over the metal structure: a masterpiece of upholstery that combines visual elegance with the cosy softness of the cushioning. The metal structure of the mechanism is equipped with gas springs to ensure continuous, soft movement, and is made of iron rods.    The upholstery is offered in in saddle-leather, leather or fabric with visible stitching. The two rectangular pillows make it possible to use Vertigo in many different ways. When placed at the sides and attached to the two bolster cushions with exquisite belts made of saddle-leather, they become comfortable armrests. Alternatively, when laid on the backrest they become lumbar cushions, or can be used as pillows when the sofa transforms into a daybed.   The back of Vertigo is striking for the continuity of its surfaces, where the skilled carpentry fluidly unites the wenge-finish solid ash of the base and the metal of the mechanism. The saddle-leather or leather upholstery of the backrest is embellished with delicate contrasting stitching, recalling the exquisite tailoring of small leather accessories, as can be seen in the Poltrona Frau logo that elegantly concludes the sequence of seams.
