On furniture work, human error concept has been employed to diminish issue in human user on products. This concept involved with the study of each behavior on human users and design on experiment to avoid the failure behaviors from user. This research demonstrates as basic idea of consideration for an assembling and disassembling process of flat pack furniture and creative design on elementary experiment with plane, closed form, and opened form. The results from 25 users displayed the relative between model of closed form and opened form which is the most difficult to assembly. The error cause on furniture assembling caused from no significant sign on model to correct step sequent including the misunderstand for the solution on the next step.
