Scandinavian Design in the Doll's House 1950–2000
Ulf Beckman and Yvette Wadsted
ISBN 978-91-85213-17-7

This book takes you on a journey through changing trends in post-war Scandinavian interior design, reflecting the Nordic way of life that has influenced interior design through-out the world.

Starting in the fifties with the influence of Carl Malmsten, a style eminently suitable to reproduce in miniature. In the sixties, the main influence came from Denmark. Brio marketed a miniature selection of furniture from Fritz Hansen scale 1:12.5.

Three internationally well-known Swedish toy makers Brio, Lundby, and Micki built electrified dolls’ houses from the early forties, the two-storey structure is based on houses commonly found in Sweden. A selection of wall-papers found in these dolls’ houses from different periods are also shown in this book. Enjoy!
