You can model such a problem using a disjunctive constraint.
You need to load lib(ic) and lib(propia) for the following.

Write a disjunction of the alternative domain intervals,
and annotate it as follows:

?- (X :: 0.0 .. 1.3 ; X :: 2.1 .. 4.0) infers ic.
X = X{0.0 .. 4.0}
There is 1 delayed goal.
Yes (0.00s cpu)

You see that, although X is displayed as having domain 0.0..4.0,
there is a "delayed goal", i.e. an active constraint which will
make sure that X only takes the allowed values.  For example:

?- (X :: 0.0..1.3 ; X :: 2.1..4.0) infers ic, X = 2.0.
No (0.00s cpu)

?- (X :: 0.0..1.3 ; X :: 2.1..4.0) infers ic, X :: 1.5 .. 2.2.
X = X{2.1 .. 2.2}
There is 1 delayed goal.
Yes (0.00s cpu)
