Mallet-Stevens, Rob(ert) (1886–1945). French architect. He collaborated with Bourgeois, Chareau, and Jourdain on various projects before setting up his own practice in 1920. He was influenced by Hoffmann and Mackintosh before the 1914–18 war, but the Pavilion of Tourism at the Paris Exposition International des Arts-Décoratifs (1924–5) gained him a position as one of the leading exponents of Art Deco. He is best known for his apartments and other buildings in the Rue Mallet-Stevens, Paris (1926–7), where certain Cubist elements occurred, and later he was a pioneer of International Modernism.
