San Diego, CA
Born in the Texas hill country, Dominique Houriet [oo-d-a] moved to San Diego, CA shortly after receiving his Master of Architecture degree. He has been practicing building design and construction for over 9 years in Southern California and Mexico. His works have been featured in The New York Times, The Museum of Contemporary Arts, Dwell, Arch Daily and more. In between projects, Dominique found the chair as another means to express his passion for art and design. The chair is like a micro-architectural solution, the challenge is to find the balance between the aesthetic and function of each piece. Each one a handcrafted jewel. We need to be a society that makes things again in order to differentiate between the machine-made and the handmade and to understand the value of that. Soul craft.
