Abstract: Population density caused the limited residential area. Narrow land area results in small houses design for the residents, especially the small young family that needs a proper house with minimum budget. This framed problem justifies the need for alternative housing in which one of them is Expandable Housing. Expandable housing is a housing concept that a house can be developed step-by-step in accordance with the owner’s current needs and budget. The possible development could be the building expansion in both horizontal and vertical construction, with the land area to take into consideration. Together with that, the furniture selection has to be in correspondence to the problem. There is a need of ease for both installation and knockdown, adding-on, with acceptable price and high mobility of the furniture. Furthermore, this research aims to invent furniture that could solve the problem stated above. The research resulted in a modular furniture system with a capability to adapt to any size of space, big or small. Rattan material was chosen to provide lightness due to the mobility feature and low-cost strong point. Moreover, Indonesia has been known as the biggest rattan producer but in spite of that, not many furniture designs utilized rattan. Where as ecologically, utilizing rattan could help improve the quality of forestry life cycle. This research utilized qualitative, quantitative and experimental method. The experiment was executed to test both the material and the mortise tenon joint for the knockdown system. The final results are the rattan furniture designs with modular tear down system such as living room table, chairs, and shelf. The main concept in this design is to make aesthetic furniture, efficient and compact (can adjust in any shape and size of space).
