Abstract
Lease house is one of the most residential which was built with gain less attention by comfort, as thermal comfort (temperature, humidity, solar radiation, etc) and activity comfort. All lease house's room was planned and designed without calculating the maximum quantity of room. It's just only impression that "the important thing is existing of the room". The purpose of this research is socializing the utilization of innovative furniture for increase support the comfortable of lease house in Merauke also make furniture that can be used in all of the rooms in lease house (except bathroom and water closet) by innovative furniture application. The result of this research is expected that will get an innovative furniture which effective, comfort, safe, healthy and efficient. The characteristic of this research is descriptive, evaluative and applicative. It means that collecting the data by observation, total population, age, height, weight, job measure, anthropometry measure (elbow high and vertical range, sitting motion, height) also literature study. Data analysis of this research is quantitative descriptive which using frequency tabulation also qualitative which using spatial pattern description. The average size of lease house for a unit in Merauke is 49 m2 which use standard furniture for a bedroom (bed, cupboard and desk) and only 20% space of lease house for circulation. So, it will make the room becomes narrow. If we use innovative furniture, the space of lease house for circulation becomes 35%. It means that if we use innovative furniture, the circulation will increase 15% better than standard furniture. Furthermore, this circulation is so good for human, temperature also humidity in the lease house's room.
