If there is a designer whose name is synonymous with industrial design it is Raymond Loewy (1893-1986). What Charles and Ray Eames are to furniture design, Raymond Loewy is to industrial design -- the modern master. Among the literally thousands of his well-known forms, shapes, and designs are the Coca-Cola bottle, the Studebaker, the U.S. Post Office logo, streamlined trains and ocean liners, the Shell and Exxon logos, and the Lucky Strike package. In Industrial Design the pioneering half-century of Loewy's career is offered in a stunning visual presentation of his most famous design achievements together with his personal account of a life in design. With mid-century modern design experiencing an incredible resurgence, this book is a key reference for that look.
