He has taught interior design for the last twenty years and was the former chairperson of the Interior Design department at FIT. A graduate of Pratt Institute, where he received a bachelor of architecture’s degree, and Columbia University, where he received a master of science degree in urban planning, Panero is a member of the American Institute of Architects, the American Society of Interior Designers, and a fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts, London.

In examining the relationship between human dimension and dining spaces, the areas of most concern to the designer are the clearances around the table and the number of people a table of a particular size can accommodate. The clearance between the edge of the table and the wall or any other physical obstruction must at the very least accommodate two elements: In dealing with the space occupied by the chair, it should be noted that its position, relative to the edge of the table, will change several times during the course of a meal.

Towards the end of a meal, perhaps while the person is engaged in informal conversation or in an effort to change body posture, the chair may be extended farther from the table. As a person leaves the table, the chair may be located even farther away. Comfortable clearance should assume the chair to be at its farthest distance from the table.

Its applicability to the design process is seen in the physical fit, or interface, between the human body and the various components of interior space. Human Dimension and Interior Space is the first major anthropometrically based reference book of design standards for use by all those involved with the physical planning and detailing of interiors, including interior designers, architects, furniture designers, builders, industrial designers, and students of design.

The use of anthropometric data, although no substitute for good design or sound professional judgment should be viewed as one of the many tools required in the design process.


This comprehensive overview of anthropometrics consists of three parts.

Julius Panero (Author of Time-Saver Standards for Interior Design and Space Planning)

The first part deals with the theory and application of anthropometrics and includes a special section dealing with physically disabled and elderly people. It provides the designer with the fundamentals of anthropometrics and pandro basic understanding of how interior design standards are established.

The second part contains easy-to-read, illustrated anthropometric tables, which provide the most current data available on human body size, pannero by age and percentile groupings. Also included is data relative to the range of joint motion and body sizes of children.

The third part contains hundreds of dimensioned drawings, illustrating in plan and section the proper anthropometrically based relationship between user and space. The types of spaces range from residential and commercial to recreational and institutional, and all dimensions include metric conversions. In the Epilogue, the authors challenge the interior design profession, the building industry, and the furniture manufacturer to seriously explore the problem of adjustability in design.

They expose the fallacy of designing to accommodate the so-called average man, who, in fact, does not exist. Using government data, including studies prepared by Dr. Albert Damon, and Dr. Public Health Service, Panero and Zelnik have devised a system of interior design reference standards, easily understood through a series of charts and situation drawings. With Human Dimension and Interior Spacethese standards are now accessible to all designers of interior environments.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. It sits atop my shelf beautifully researched and authored.

It’s the key to human-centered design or any julkus for that matter. It covers juliks golden ratio and leaves the best woven in the detailed measurements of body parts. It helped me design a delightful bookcase and a mudroom that doesn’t feel claustrophobic. These days, I don’t turn to it much, but I’m ever reminded of the wisdom it contains. Are you completely OCD regarding furniture placement and interior design? Have you ever been tormented trying to decide on perfect height to hang a picture?


Then this book is your salvation! This bona fide authority on the minutiae interior spaces will pandro you exactly how many inches your sofa juliuus be from the coffee table, so you can worry about more important things, like the optimal layout of vegetables in your crisper drawer! This is the definitive book if you are going to design and build furniture, living and working spaces, or making something to fit the human body!

Plenty of descriptive information to accomplish the job!

One person found this helpful. Great reference for anyone that builds stuff for humans. The diagrams and tables clearly state the dimensions necessary for the size of things to “feel” correct and be comfortable to use.

Great book, also have the nice price. I really didn’t expect this book t be so great, it’s a must have if you make furniture. Excellent for architects students. This book is simply awesome for people designing both furniture and buildings. Even though it does not give you details for all possible situations, it is a very well set up book that is simple to use. I give it a star less for the sloppy conversions into metric. I would rather be interested in rounded up figures than in the exact measurements.

All by all more oanero worth its money. See all 76 reviews.
