Robert Mallet-Stevens

Robert Mallet-Stevens (March 24, 1886 – February 8, 1945) was a French architect and designer.

In 1924 Mallet-Stevens published La Gazette Des 7 Arts magazine and founded the Club des amis du 7ème art. A Paris street in the 16th arrondissement, Rue Mallet-Stevens, was built by him in the 1920s, with 6 houses he designed.

These images are from a fabulous portfolio of 32 of Mallet-Stevens' designs called Une Cité Moderne, published in 1922.

 



In 1929, surrealist photographer and filmmaker Man Ray made a film inspired by his design for the buildings named "Villa Noailles" entitled The Mysteries of the Château de Dé.
