His father and his grandfather were art collectors in Paris and Brussels. Stevens studied at the École Spéciale d'Architecture in Paris. Between 1912 and 1914 he came to know the work of other young architects at the Salons d’ Automnes. After the First World War, he became a fashionable and slightly experimental designer. One of his first commissions was for the villa of the Vicomte de Noailles at Hyères, which emerged in Man Ray’s film Les Mystères du Château du Dé. The house was representative of Mallet-Stevens’ fusion of Cubist painting, Art Deco details. Typically, Mallet-Stevens drew artists and musicians into his projects, like the Tourism pavilion and the French embassy he designed at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes. Mallet-Stevens was a specialist in metal framing and reinforced concrete.
