Gordon Bruce Wants to Make Noyes A Household Name

0131noyes.jpg

An interesting story out of Business Week‘s excellent design column. This time, it’s “The Forgotten Pioneer of Corporate Design” about Eliot Noyes, a highly influential designer and architect who, sadly, relatively few people know anything about. Though that might change, as we learn that Gordon Bruce is releasing a book about Noyes and his work, entitled “Eliot Noyes: A Pioneer of Design and Architecture in the Age of Modernism.” Here’s a little:

Bruce begins his story with Noyes’s early years and his education at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, where the young architect came under the influence of Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer, who fled Germany in 1937, bringing the modernist ideals of the Bauhaus School with them. But the author moves quickly to the early years of Noyes’s career when, after a brief stint working in the office of his mentors, he became the first curator of design at New York’s Museum of Modern Art.
