For a week, the workshop “Twisting and twining”, tutored by MUT Design at the French research centre Domaine de Boisbuchet allowed people from very different backgrounds to experiment with one of MUT’s most cherished materials: rattan. This extremely versatile material was pushed to its limits to squeeze the best out of it and now the result of those productive days is coming to their studio in Valencia, their hometown and the city chosen as World Design Capital this year. If you want to learn more about it, the exhibition will be on from the 20th to the 23rdSeptember, 2022.
Boisbuchet was the dream of a design amateur and expert: Alexander von Vegesack. He wanted a place where design meets education, in a large sense. Some 25 years ago, he bought the 150 hectares Domaine de Boisbuchet. Since then, professionals and students come every year to experience how internationally successful professionals structure their work, and how they approach design problems. Our summer workshops, our architectural park, our exhibitions and our rich community, form our many insights and inspiration for a unique creative experience.
Every year, we invite the most inspiring architects & designers from all over the world, to give a week-long workshop at the Domaine de Boisbuchet in South-West France. Every tutor takes into account the inspiring natural environment, and crafts a theme for participants to build upon. Every single workshop is a unique hands-on experience, with the guarantee of learning by doing with materials and tools provided by Boisbuchet. Throughout the week, participants get insight on the process & techniques of top designers, and have the opportunity to connect with like-minded, passionate people.
