These science lab-themed creations incorporate anything from flasks and test tubes to figurines of human bodies. Probably very familiar to the biology student, these items infuse a little bit of scientific geekiness into settings outside a lab.

Many kitchen items mimic a science lab, especially when it comes to condiments. Spices have been jarred in test tube or flask-like containers. This makes sense, because cooking involves mixing ingredients, just as scientists would mix chemicals to come up with the perfect formula. Recognizing the cute resemblance between the two settings, companies have come up with quirky yet catchy designs that leave an impression on consumers. Other science lab-inspired designs include alcohol branding, in attempt to exude a more healthy and genuine appeal.
