Eliot Noyes (1910-77) was a notable figure in 20th century design.
An architect who began his career working in the offices of Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer, he became the first director of MoMA's industrial design department in the 1940s.
From the late 1950s until his death in 1977 he was Director of Design Consulting for IBM, Mobil Oil, Westinghouse and Cummins Engine Company, and was responsible for bringing about a change in the way these corporations, and others that followed them, thought about design and its impact on business.
He hired pioneering designers, particularly Charles Eames, Paul Rand, Ivan Chermayeff and Tom Geismar, to help him create innovative architectural, graphic and industrial design.
He was personally responsible for the design of some notable 20th century classics, such as IBM's Selectric typewriter and Mobil Oil's gas stations and pumps.
His own work includes architectural projects, such as Noyes' award-winning family home in Connecticut.
This important monograph traces the life of this unique architect, designer and entrepreneur who dedicated much of his career to encouraging American corporations to respect and develop policies rich in cultural expression.
The author has had extensive access to the Noyes archive of personal and business projects, materials and letters, and has conducted extensive interviews with a large number of acquaintances and relationships with Noyes.
