his study is the result of an investigation of the influence of physical work environment
toward stress at work place, particularly the color composition used. The research subjects
were thirty students of ASMI (Secretary and Management Academy) who were divided into
three groups, namely the Harmonious group, The Disharmonious group, and the Controlled
group. The Work Stress Scale was used in the measurement process. The measurement was
done three times: before the experiment, in the middle of the experiment (first 2 hours), and after
the experiment (last 2 hours). The result was analysed using the Analysis of Variance (ANAVA)
A-Mix-B model of SPS-2000 software application. The result of this study illustrated that there
was a significant difference on work stress level impacted by color composition applied at work
space (F = 4.149, p = 0.026). The graphic of work stress average of the Harmonious group
showed that Harmonious color composition did not affect the work stress significantly (t =
0.520, p = 0.306). The dominantly white color composition that played a role as the Controlled
group was in fact able to reduce the work stress. The graphic showed that the Controlled group
tended to decrease significantly with these values t = 1.825, p = 0.035, and the initial work stress
average was (0.000) higher than the final one (- 22.800). The Disharmonious group showed that
the color composition increased the work stress level (t = 3.177, p = 0.001). It was concluded that
Harmonious color composition at work space did not influence the work stress level, dominantly
white color composition could reduce the work stress level, and inharmonious (Disharmonious)
color composition application had chances to elevate the work stress level.
