Design Javier Mariscal, 2009
Cardboard, stickers
Made in Italy by Magis

Villa Julia is a house for children in which they are provided with the cardboard and the lines for folding, but the children themselves set it up (under adult supervision), find a place for it and make it their own by coloring the drawings found on the sides. They are given a plan with easy instructions for assembly, in five stages. The game takes place in several phases: assembly, personalization and decoration, occupation and dismounting. Villa Julia has a chimney, eaves, door and windows. Its lines make one think of typical middle-class detached North American homes of the 1950s.

Villa Julia is made of cardboard and is not colored. It comes complete with instructions and stickers for personalization.

The Magis company was founded in 1976 and had their first success in 1984 with “Step,” a ladder that was influential and crossed over into the designer furniture market from the hardware stores. They had two more huge successes in 1994 with Jasper Morrison’s “Bottle” and the “Lyra” stool from the Italia Group, their bestseller. Two years later, the “Bombo” stool designed by Stefano Giovannoni would gain enormous success and cultivate an imitable style. Once the company gained momentum, they never slowed and would go on to produce Jasper Morrison’s technologically advanced “Air-Chair,” Michael Young’s “Dog House,” Konstantin Grcic’s “Chair One,” the “Me Too” line of children’s objects and furniture, and the “Striped” family from the Bouroullec brothers.
