Minimii’s Dollhouse Replicates Arne Jacobsen’s Charlottenlund Villa on a Smaller, Yet Grand Scale

Fantasy and reality beautifully collide in Minimii’s 1:16 scale dollhouse reproduction of designer Arne Jacobsen’s 1928 villa in Charlottenlund, Denmark. Designed by Linda Stenberg and Claus Hojer Hansen, the Danish creative directors of Minimii, the dollhouse features a roof and four walls that may be mounted and dismounted, allowing more children to play at once, a small collection of designer furniture (Egg and Swan chairs courtesy of Fritz Hansen) as well as tiny commissioned modern art pieces, wallpaper and rugs with patterns from Jacobsens aquarelle drawings and many more chic amenities which stay in place via magnets!

Tired of the Victorian styled dolls houses filled with dull brown chairs and hoping to shape childrens’ penchant for good design by surrounding them in designer style, Stenberg and Hojer Hansen will furnish the dollhouse with the aforementioned furniture, as well as Vipp trash cans, an exclusive miniature art piece by artist Poul Pava, kids play furniture from Bobles, kitchens and bathrooms from Design by Us, and lighting from Normann Copenhagen! They are also collaborating with the famous doll maker, Maileg, to create the very fortunate, design savvy family who will live in the miniature Jacobsen home.

Designed with not just aesthetics in mind, Minimii has created a versatile and incredibly play worthy home. The roof and walls are easily removed, enabling children to play from all angles at the same time. Magnetised lamps, arts and accessories can also be placed anywhere that the interior decorator in you pleases, as there is a thin layer of iron sheeting within the floors, ceiling and walls. Adding to the delight, even the designer lamps contain their own lithium battery. A smaller wall hanging version of the home named the MiiBox is also available – perfect for storing your little items behind its hinged façade.
