    Abstract

    In this research we analyze the mismatch between desk and chair key characteristics and the respective pupil’s anthropometric data. Sample is taken from11 public elementary schools in six regions in Central Java Indonesia. Mismatch comparisons are made among existing desk and chair, Indonesia National Standard (SNI) dimensions of desk and chair, and dimensions from pupil’s anthropometric data. From the results of the analysis, seat height and desk height have the highest mismatch, while seat width and under desk clearance have the lowest mismatch. In general, four key characteristics dimensions from pupil’s anthropometric data are considered to have better match compared to existing and SNI key characteristics dimensions. A redesign is needed due to the results of the analysis.
