From my childhood I have a red Arne Jacobsen egg chair by Brio with matching footstool (See it in use here) and last year I was so lucky to get one of the new egg chairs made by Minimii from Cocco. The size of the chair from Minimii is: Height 6,69cm Debth: 4,94cm Width: 5,38cm and is 1:16 according to Minimii. I have searched the net to find the size of the fullscale Egg chair and found it is Height 107cm, the Debth is 79cm and the Width is 86cm. So Minimii's chair is a perfect 1:16 scale. (3/4" scale)
My old Brio chair is slightly larger, the Height is about 7.5cm which means the scale is about 1:14.
On popular demand (I hope you read this Cocco :-)) I have taken pictures of the two chairs together to show you the difference. Click on the photos to enlarge them.
