Lab Spatula with Spoon, 180 mm
This industrial-grade spatula/spoon tool is perfect for handling tough materials in the studio. Use it to move and scrape paint on your palette, to scoop pigments and dispense inks, to stir color into gesso, or a hundred other tasks with wet and dry media.
Kartell, the manufacturer of this spatula, is known for its design, and this small object is no exception. We love the deep orange color (a signature for Kartell's many manufacturing divisions), the smoothly curving shape, and the ergonomic, slightly flexible handle.
Molded plastic with fiberglass reinforcement for durability. 180 mm (7.1") length.
Made in Italy.
Established in 1949 as a plastic auto parts manufacturer, Kartell surprisingly became a pioneer in manufacturing and an Italian design icon. Founder Giulio Castelli was working to get the young company on its feet when two of his partners quit—a crisis that quickly became a catalyst for growth and change. It was only out of absolute necessity that Giulio was able to convince his wife Anna Castelli Ferrieri, an architect and feminist activist, to join him as Kartell's lead designer.
Anna led the company into consumer goods and home furnishings, a category in which plastics were very uncommon at the time. Inspired by rationalist philosophy and Bauhaus aesthetics, she created bold, minimal designs and etched a permanent place in modernist design history.
Today, Kartell manufactures a huge range of plastic products aimed at consumers, businesses, and industrial users, including a large assortment of plastic labware.
