Alex Roskin, ‘Alex Roskin, Zepp Cocktail Table, USA, 2017’, 2017, Todd Merrill Studio

Alex Roskin’s Zepp Cocktail Table reflects the simplicity of design present in the artist’s recent works with the elegant combination of rich wood and true bronze. The top is hand carved walnut while the bronze midsection of the table, bowed and sinuous, fluidly extends to meet hand-carved walnut legs. The bronze central support consists of a series of spindles resembling the internal structure of a zeppelin.

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.
