Alex Roskin’s L’éléphant Console reflects the artist’s modernist and primitivist influences.

The console’s muscular sculpted shape is cast in bronze, and polished to a mirror finish. The base of the table, bowed and sinuous, fluidly extends to meet the floor. The console is designed to assume a rich patina as it ages.

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.
