Hypothesis: JIPO’s Porcelain Lab Ware Is Pretty Enough to Bring Home

JIPO Porcelain Lab Ware at Itotoki Shop in Japan

Remodelista editors have a soft spot for nerdy laboratory ware (think beakers, measuring cups, pestles, and the like). We admire the clean lines, the visible measurements, the no-nonsense utility, the intimation of lab coats and goggles. Recently, we discovered especially refined versions by Czech company JIPO, which has been in the business of producing such research tools since 1947.

JIPO’s products can be found on websites with names like Laboratory Supplies and Bio-Strategy. But they’re also at discriminating stores like the UK’s Labour & Wait, a Remodelista favorite for well-designed utilitarian wares, and NYC’s Roman and Williams Guild, where we first spotted them. The brand is also represented at several Japanese housewares shops.

Our non-scientific assessment: JIPO’s line of porcelain lab ware will fit right into any space that values form and function equally. Have a look.
