Raymond Loewy, an iconic French American designer who was dubbed “the father of industrial design,” had many well-known projects; and over his career span he consulted with over two hundred companies, leaving his mark in the design world. Some of his most notable achievements include the popular Shell, Exxon, BP, and TWA logos; a Greyhound bus; an S-1 locomotive; the Lucky Strike cigarette package; the Coldspot refrigerator for Sears; the Avanti for Studebaker; plus, designs for Harley Davidson and Coca Cola. He also designed NASA Skylab, the Airforce One livery, and the John F. Kennedy memorial postage stamp, among other notable items. From products such as furniture to public transportation Raymond Loewy took pride in making what he called “the mundane side of the 20th Century more beautiful.” He worked for Mengel from 1950 to 1959. Notably Raymond Loewy was featured on the cover of TIME magazine in October 1949 and in 1975 the Smithsonian Institute opened “The Designs of Raymond Loewy,” a four-month exhibition dedicated to his life’s work and achievements. Mr. Loewy passed away in 1986.
Hill-Rom is an American medical technology provider and a wholly owned subsidiary of Baxter International. The company dates back to October in 1929 during the height of the Great Depression when William (Bill) A. Hillenbrand revolutionized the idea to “bring the home into the hospital” idea with warmer and more home-like furnishings. Mr. Hillenbrand gave hospitals a six month free trial period where he would furnish private rooms with his furnishings and at the end of the period he was swamped with orders for more. It was a huge success. In 2019, Hill-Rom rebranded itself as Hillrom and welcomed additional companies including Allen Medical, Liko, Mortara, Trumpf Medical, Voalte, Welch Allyn, Breathe Technologies and Excel Medical and work as one team. Today they continue a legacy of innovation.
