The factors to be researched from the four types of classroom chairs include aspects of dimension, material form and colour and their relevance to the user. This research aims to describe to what extent has ergonomic principles been applied to the classroom chairs in order to maintain the user’s comfort. The results of the evaluation of the four types of chair show that 77% of the Siwangi chairs could be used with comfort because they are in line with the user’s anthropometry. However, the other types of chair particularly the metal wood and Chettos chairs could only be used by 30% of the user population because the dimensions where not in line with the average user’s anthropometry.
