A new book celebrates the legacy of Eliot Noyes, whose work at IBM, Mobil Oil, and Westinghouse led the way for future designers. But this month, a new monograph by Gordon Bruce titled Eliot Noyes: A Pioneer of Design and Architecture in the Age of American Modernism (Phaidon Press 2007, ww. haidonpress. com) aims to reestablish Noyes' legacy and bring his impressive achievements to a wider audience. Bruce, who worked as a designer in the Noyes office for close to a decade, offers an intimate portrayal that is as much about the man as it is about the work.

Gordon Bruce's monograph of Eliot Noyes demonstrates the joy and prosperity that the latter approach can provide. Eliot Noyes serves as a strong companion piece to Markus Rathgeb's monograph on Otl Aicher. While each focused on corporate branding as much as they did on their design specialties, the two men led extraordinarily different lives.

Eliot Noyes was a remarkable figure in twentieth-century design. An architect who began his career working in the office of Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer, he went on to become the first Director of the Industrial Design department at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in the 1940s. From the late 1950s until his death in 1977, he was Consulting Director of Design for IBM, Mobil Oil, Westinghouse and Cummins Engine Company, and was responsible for bringing about a change in the way that these corporations, and others that followed, were to think about design and its impact on business. He enlisted pioneering designers, including Charles Eames, Paul Rand, Ivan Chermayeff and Tom Geismar, to help him bring about innovative architectural, graphic and industrial design. He was personally responsible for the design of some notable twentieth-century classics, such as IBM's Selectric typewriter and Mobil Oil's service stations and petrol pumps. His own work includes architectural projects, such as the award-winning Noyes family residence in Connecticut.This is the first monograph to trace the life of this unique architect and designer who devoted a great deal of his career to encouraging large American businesses to respect and develop policies that were rich in cultural expression.

The cover art of this book bears close scrutiny as it clearly delineates the amazing web of relationships that defined Eliot Noyes, one of the great architects and industrial designers of the 20th century. The book itself is informative and very readable, but could have used a better proof reader as there are more errors of grammar and spelling than there should be. This might be the result of the impact of the computer on the editing process, as I have noted the same sort of errors in many books published in recent years that seem to reflect this.

In any case, Noyes led a fascinating life; this book helps the reader enter into some of the amazingly diverse relationships and ideas that colored that life. But Noyes was more than that. He had a wonderfully clean and rich understanding of design and how it effects human beings. A man of very definate ideas, he also understood that people cannot be forced into living a certain way, as some architects have tried to do. His understanding of people was similarly rich. Perhaps it is this quality that drew so many people to him and allowed for his enormous influence on American life and society in the last half of the 20th century.

If I have a criticism, it is that there could have been more drawings and illustrations, though there are plenty as there are. I would have particularly liked to have seen more of his drawings done for the archeological dig he went on in the 1930's and renderings done for projects that were never undertaken. I suspect there is a treasure trove of ideas there.

This is a wonderful book!

Eliot Noyes is an American original.
Yet no one talks about him...they do mention many other designers and architects, but not Eliot. Big Mistake, from now on, every time you pull into a gas station, think of him as the guy who designed it.
Get this book and see how much we have taken him for granted for too long!

For those interested in the history of industrial design and the architecture of Bauhaus-educated architects like Gropius, Breuer, etc., this is a very intersting book. There are plenty of excellent photos. I have only read a few chapters so far but look forward to the rest.
