Alex Roskin, Tusk Lounge Chair, USA, 2018
The Tusk Lounge Chair reflects Alex Roskin penchant for an animality in form. Finished in mirror polished stainless steel the chair features a low seat and wide back. The chair features an mammalian physicality, hand-sculpted and cast in bronze. The bronze front legs extend from the chair’s body in a bowed fashion while the back legs are hand carved, rendering each chair unique. The seat and back are upholstered in satiny cream colored pony hair.
Inspired by innovative designers including Richard Serra, Wendel Castle, and Constantin Brancusi, Alex Roskin’s works blend functional and artistic design. Of his own work, Roskin notes: “I try with each piece to create a stance and a presence, some with more contrapposto. I aim to give each piece a feeling that it’s inhaling or ready to make a move. I try to steer clear of the decorative, but to draw on mass, volume, line, negative space, and my love of materials and the craft of working with them.” Roskin and his wife, a painter, live and work in Ancram, New York.
Custom designs may be commissioned.
