Alex Roskin, Tusk High Chair in Aluminum with Polished Bronze, USA

Price Upon Request
  • Description
    Inspired by his Biche Desk, the Tusk Chair II reflects Alex Roskin penchant for an animality in form. The versatile chair can be used as a salon chair, a desk chair, or grouped for a dining set.

    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 black pony.

    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.

    The versatile chairs can be used as a salon chair, a desk chair, or grouped for a dining set. Available in two sizes, the chairs can be commissioned in aluminum or bronze plated aluminum in a variety of finishes, including mirror polished, brushed, patinated, and rubbed.

    Custom designs may be commissioned.
