French architect and designer, honoured in the 21st century by an exhibition of his drawings, models, and actual works held at the Centre Pompidou in Paris in 2005.

In 1924 Mallet-Stevens published a magazine called La Gazette Des 7 Arts and at the same time with the help of Ricciotto Canudo 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 and has on it six houses designed by him.

A portfolio of 32 of Mallet-Stevens' designs was published under the title Une Cite Moderne in 1922. In addition to designing shops, factories, a fire station in Paris, apartment buildings, private homes, and interiors, he was one of the first architects to show an interest in cinema. He designed film sets and his design for Marcel L'Herbier's silent film L'Inhumaine (1924) is considered a masterpiece.

He died on 8 February 1945, aged 58, in Paris.
