Eliot Noyes

1910-1977, Né à Boston, États-Unis et défunt à New Canaan, États-Unis

Eliot Noyes (Boston, 1910 – New Canaan, United States of America, 1977) was an American architect and industrial designer. In 1938, he graduated with a degree in architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. After joining the office of Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and working at the MoMA as the director of industrial design, Eliot Noyes worked on projects for IBM, the American computer giant. He reinvented the company’s image, from stationery to curtains, typewriters, and computers, as well as laboratories and administrative buildings. Thus, Eliot Noyes played a key role in transforming the relationship between functional design, computing, and corporate culture.
