Juicy Salif Citrus Squeezer - Alessi

The Alessi Juicy Salif Citrus Squeezer, designed by Philippe Starck, is an icon of revolutionary kitchenware. Since first being produced in 1990, it has become a design icon, with its teardrop-shaped body and slim curving legs. It is beautiful to look at while being eerily reminiscent of a Martian tripod from "The War of the Worlds". And, as you would expect with an Alessi product, it is also completely practical. 

Not just a striking design, this juice squeezer is surprisingly functional. Made from a mirror polished and durable aluminium, its long, spider-like legs are tall enough to fit your glass underneath - ready to collect your lemon, orange or lime juice. 

The simplistic yet unforgettable form came to Starck on a pizzeria napkin during a seaside holiday in Italy.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

A true one-off, Philippe Starck is one of most influential designers of modern times. From transparent furniture to sculptural lemon squeezers, his designs have changed the way we live with their stylised, organic look often constructed using unusual and innovative combinations of materials. 

ABOUT ALESSI

For over a century, Alessi has been creating extraordinary objects that make people dream, feel, think and experience poetry in their daily lives. By collaborating with the best creative minds from around the world, Alessi brings the most unexpected and contemporary expressions of design culture into people’s homes.

The Italian company was founded in 1921 by Giovanni Alessi and initially concentrated on metal kitchenware. His products and designs of coffee pots became so popular, that by 1924 the brand name ‘Alessi’ was well established.

By the 1950s the company broadened its approach, deciding to collaborate with well-known designers. The aim was to break away from modernism and even traditional designs and to try more unconventional design ideas, including those from groups such as Studio Alchima (Alessandro Mendini) and Memphis (Ettore Sottsass). Other designers associated with Alessi include Aldo Rossi, Philippe Starck and Michael Graves. The collaborative and creative approach they use has become the hallmark of the Alessi brand.

Alessi is now a B Corp, a company which strives to maximise the positive impact they have on their employees, the communities in which they operate and the environment, by using the business as a force for regeneration and sustainability.
