Description Tusk Chair

Inspired by his Biche Desk, the Tusk Chair reflects Alex Roskin penchant for an animality in form.

The chair features an mammalian physicality, hand-sculpted and cast in bronze with a dark rubbed patina. 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 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.
