Domestic-Wild is the union of the spanish-french artist Ariane Patout, and the german-swiss designer René Müller, two creators with a remarkable career, currently based in Barcelona.
It is in 2012 when these two professionals gave life to their first best-seller artistic project: WILD CHAIR, recognized with the FAD Architecture Award (2014) and Valldoreix Sculpture Biennial Award (2016). Since then, they have not stopped to create together and fascinate the world with their creations.
They merge art and design, savoire-faire and experimentation. They combine the classic with the contemporary. Wood is their speciality. As their name Domestic-Wild suggests, their work is inspired by the contrasts, joining the concepts of the wild nature, and the human domestication. For them the perfect beauty, is a balance of the asymmetry of the raw and the fine shapes, with imperfections and contrasts. This is expressed in their work in the landscape, as well as their collection of functional sculptures and furniture. They are definitely; refined and wild.
Multidisciplinary artist and designer specialized in sculpture and interventions in public space and landscape, licended in the Arts School La Massana and the Cinema School ESCAC in Barcelona, was recognized with the SID'S Award (2013) in Switzerland, Arquitecture Award FAD (2014) in Barcelona, Valldoreix Biennial Sculpture Award (2016) and finalist of the AFAD Awards in 2013 and 2014, as well as finalist for the Ciudad Sant Cugat Prize in 2014 for his artistic career.
Designer, carpenter and Land-art artist licensed in Germany, has also been recognized for the FAD Architecture Prize (2014) and the Valldoreix Biennial Sculpture Award (2016). Since 2003 he runs his own company based in Germany, WOODLOOPS: JUST NATURE, in which he designs, produces and distributes FSC wood products and furniture, with the traditionalstyle as well as sculptural furniture. He has participated in several professional events at national and international level.
In Domestic-Wild we work on it through artistic projects that aim to inspire the Society and generate messages with enough ethical force to improve the quality of our community values. To bring the human being closer to a more respectful relationship with nature, through a more conscious, committed and sensitized use and treatment.
The artistic process, can be materialized invery different ways but always looking forthe sensitivity and social awareness, we takecare of the advice, coordination, design andproduction of it.We also carry out creative training activities,adapting to the needs of each project, inorder to supervise this creative process at all levels of its development.
In Domestic-Wild, we open a dialogue through artistic action to invites the Society to reflect on what is the real impact of humans on their relationship with the planet today. And in turn, what is, or should be, the purpose of an artistic intervention within this same reflection.
Public space of all and the home of each one, are for us very important scenarios for life. For this reason we work to improve the quality of life in these, through unique works designed for each occasion.
We add 40 years of experience in the world of art and design, our passion and philosophy of life, with the desire to share it with the rest to build a better world.
Wood is the specialty of Domestic-Wild and is an essential element in our projects. We want to give prominence in everyday life, both at home and in public spaces, not only for its aesthetic value, but also for its physical and sensory qualities.
We apply traditional and innovative techniques and treatments, and of experimental nature.
We bet to enhance your presence in the spaces that we inhabit, in coexistence with the asphalt of the cities, or innovating in their form and its use in rural areas, since it contributes better to the quality of life of the users, clearly giving their message to: all we are part of the nature that life gives us.
