Today Google is celebrating designer Raymond Loewy's career.
I think his work is the ugliest crap ever produced by major companies. If there were ever an anti-Howard Roark in approach to aesthetics, I think that Loewy was it. It's as if instead of reflecting on what an individual product was, and designing it according to its identity, he tried to make all products look futuristic by giving them the features that aircraft and rockets had at the time. And he did so as awkwardly as possible due to his having no taste or sense of proportion.
Does anyone disagree? Is there anyone here who thinks that Loewy's designs are beautiful?
