He exhibited at the Supérieur des Arts Décoratifs in Paris between 1915 and 1919 and from 1922 to 1924 and taught at the École des Arts Industriels in Grenoble.
In 1924 he joined the Primavera studio and won the Blumenthal prize and in 1925 he was awarded the out-of-competition Grand Prix at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs.
From then on, he received many public commissions. In 1929, he founded the Union des Artistes Moderne (UAM) with Mallett-Stevens, Le Corbusier, J.J. Martel, Charlotte Perriand and F. Jourdain. The aim of this group was to widen public appreciation of the arts and to bring artistic values into line with the demands of modern life. The work of art, they said, should have an educative effect.
