If you want a simple yet highly attractive juicer for getting a little lemon juice for fish or sauces or a nice glass of orange juice for breakfast without bringing out your heavy electric juicer, Juicy Salif is just the ticket. Not only that, it looks like a sculpture so you can leave it on the kitchen counter as an amazing decorative object d'art. Philippe Starck once said that "Juicy Salif is not only meant to squeeze lemons but to start conversations". Juicy Salif features a a pointed rocket-like tip and sharp edges make it easier to begin and continue the juicing process. Alessi's Juicy Salif is made of food safe solid aluminum, which does not react with acidic fruits, making the product more durable. One of the first projects by French designer, Philippe Starck for Alessi. The Juicy Salif was devised in the second half of the 1980s. This Philippe Starck design remains unparalleled in its ability to generate discussions about its meaning and design, partly because of its unconventional use of what semiologists refer to as the decorative veil which, even though generally in a less overt manner, is inexorably destined to cover all objects created by man. Juicy Salif continues to be one of the most provocatively intelligent articles in the Alessi catalog and makes a great gift for family, friends and loved ones.
Not all squeezers are only meant to squeeze, some are meant to be displayed as well! Perhaps the most famous example of this is the Juicy Salif, designed by Philippe Starck in 1990. It is considered an icon of industrial design that has been displayed in New York's Museum of Modern Art. It is manufactured by Italian kitchenware company Alessi. Its diameter is 14 cm, height 29 cm, and it is made from cast and polished aluminium. As the founder of the company Alberto Alessi recalls "I received a napkin from Starck, on it among some incomprehensible marks (tomato sauce, in all likelihood) there were some sketches. Sketches of squid. They started on the left, and as they worked their way over to the right, they took on the unmistakable shape of what was to become the juicy salif. While eating a dish of squid and squeezing a lemon over it, Starck drew on the napkin his famous lemon squeezer.Presented in Alessi gift box.
