Robert Mallet Stevens

Robert Mallet-Stevens (Paris, 24 March 1886 - Paris, 8 February 1945)He graduated from the École spéciale d'architecture in Paris in 1910. After being a furniture designer and cinematographer (for example in L'inhumaine) for about twenty years, he started his career as an architect in the mid-twenties. an exclusively private clientele, apart from the creation of only a firehouse in Paris. He was one of the founders of the Union des Artistes modernes (UAM) in 1929, together with Francis Jourdain, René Herbst and others. The movement was firmly in opposition to the Art Nouveau decorativism and proposed a purity of lines and forms that merged into the modern international movement. During the Vichy regime he took refuge with his family in the south-east of France, in Penne-d'Agenais (Lot-et-Garonne). The importance of his work as an architect was recognized only after his death, when by now most of his works had been left to abandonment (as villa Cavrois).
