Once upon a time, nisses, or tomtes, used to roam around the Scandinavian landscape among humans; the goal of these Nisse Landscape Snow Globes is to welcome them back into society.

JAJA Architects undertook this playful project at the Dansk Architecture Center, with the goal of bringing the mythological elf beyond his contemporary Christmas existence and back in day-to-day life as the tennis nisse, the bar nisse or the underground nisse. Enjoy this selection of the 14 Nisse Landscape Snow Globes, along with a brief history of the tomte population in northern Europe.
