Alessi Juicy Salif Citrus Squeezer by Philippe Starck
The Juicy Salif Citrus Squeezer by Philippe Starck has become an icon of modern design. The most controversial citrus fruit squeezer of the century continues to be one of the most popular items from Alessi. The Juicy Salif lemon squeezer was one of the first projects designed by Philippe Starck for them. Alberto Alessi comments: " 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."
