We consider the exchange interactions between t2g spins of cobalt ions in a two-dimensional triangular lattice. The low-energy effective Hamiltonian supports a variety of magnetic states depending on the competition between a relativistic spin-orbit coupling and lattice distortion. In one particular limit (weak lattice distortions), the Hamiltonian resembles a "compass" model and leads to a highly noncomplanar and noncollinear magnetic correlations with a condensation of the spin vorticity in the ground state. We will also address the magnetism of sodium-rich compounds Na1-xCoO2 and discuss it in terms of spin/orbital polaronic liquid.
