Design Alessi Juicy Salif Citrus Squeezer, Philippe Starck

It’s testament to Philippe Starck’s talent that even his lemon squeezer has become a 20th-century design icon. ‘My idea is to bring happiness, respect, vision, poetry, surrealism and magic’ said the French designer, whose work puts the funk in function. Fusing Pop Art shapes with Space Age influences, the concept of the Alessi Juicy Salif Citrus Squeezer came about when Starck was squeezing lemon juice over a tasty plate of calamari. Thirty years later, it’s the culinary landmark of kitchen tops and dinner tables worldwide – and has even landed behind the illustrious glass of institutions such as the V&A in London and MoMA in New York. Still plenty of juice left in this one.
