Henri Fernandez was a Senior Lecturer in the Departments of Architecture and Interior Architecture for the Rhode Island School of Design. Henri Fernandez left a legacy on design nowadays as the insects are turning back to the trends. Back in the 70’s Henri was already designing art furniture which included insects and animals.
Henri contributed for the collections of many artists back then like Jacques Duval-Brasseur, Maison Honoré. He used noble materials like brass, Agathe stones, and other precious stones, all the pieces he designed to make a statement and can be called as art. He defies the boundaries between art and design. His mark for the artists he collaborated with is very notable. In the 1970s, French artist Jacques Duval-Brasseur produced a series of brass and glass tables that look like animals. Pleasant birds were among them, some of them are Henri’s.
