Explore Crazy-Cool Projects in Laurel Consuelo Broughton’s Portfolio

BY monica derevjanik 05/22/2013

Sure, Laurel Consuelo Broughton might be the mastermind behind the quirky-minimalist accessories line Welcome Companions, but that’s just the tip of the creative iceberg. Through her studio practice Welcome Projects, she conceptualizes iPhone cases…and houses. “Design is an opportunity to create a world view through the physical things you put in the world, so I like to imagine that I am creating some sort of world,” she explains. Get a tour of Planet Laurel right here.

"Its such a beatiful and calming haven and I am addicted to their waterlemon juice at breakfast. They also have Marmite, which I have a weakness for."

Have Your Cake and Ear It Too

“Kind of tongue-in-cheek: Have Your Cake and Ear It Too is an iPhone case that we are producing. I love the idea of people walking around talking into slices of cake.”

TheVillage

“TheVillage is a speculative architecture project— imagining an urban plan that is made up of common objects that are scaled up to become different types of buildings. Here, a cordless phone becomes a high-rise apartment building. In many ways, all the projects I do are connected.”

Meglophobia
“This project came about after a conversation about the multiple pieces of land art that are located in the Southwest and how far apart they are. I started to wonder about the possibility of making a folly where all of them exist in one place, albeit shrunken in scale, requiring visitors to take very different physical positions in order to experience them. To illustrate it, I made a series of images. This one is Nancy Holt’s Sun Tunnels.”
