A good workspace significantly affects on work productivity. Therefore, in designing a workspace, it isÂ necessary to put much concern on lighting condition. A good condition on it can make workers comfortable during theirÂ activities and further increase productivity.This research shows data taken from real-lighting condition in small-mediumÂ handmade Batik industry,namely Batik Sogan which is located in Yogyakarta. The object of this research is a workspaceÂ with some working activities for example sewing, over edge sewing, and buttons attachment. With Dialux 4.8 software, theÂ research is conducted to compare between direct measurement and lighting simulation result, as well as givingÂ recommendation to improve lighting condition which fits in standards. The result shows that the lighting condition inÂ Sewing-room in Batik Sogan is below standard, i.e., 91 â 125 lux. Therefore, sewing-room condition must be improved, soÂ that the lighting condition may meet the standardized lighting for working conditions which is 500-1000 lux. Simple andÂ cheap improvement to it are to replace the type of the lamp into Philips 4MX091 TL as many as 4 items and to change theÂ colour of the rooms and the desks into white, so it can achieve the maximum lighting 693 lux, which has met the minimumÂ standards for rather- soft working lighting.
