Abstract: An arbitrary orthoposet $E$ is shown to be isomorphic to $(\mathcal E, \subset ,^c)$, $\mathcal E$ being a subbasis of a Hausdorff topological space $\mathcal S$ satisfying 1) $\mathcal S\in \mathcal E$, 2) $\alpha \in \mathcal E\Rightarrow\alpha ^c \in \mathcal E$, and 3) every covering of $\mathcal S$ by elements of $\mathcal E$ possesses an at most 2-element subcovering. The couple $(\mathcal S,\mathcal E)$ turns out to be unique.
