The Juicy Salif’s striking aluminium body looks like a terrifyingly oversized spider or a sci-fi monster, anything but what it actually is – a citrus squeezer. Designed by Philippe Starck for Italian homeware label Alessi in 1998, this futuristic-looking object provoked the design world by thumbing its nose at the “form follows function” principle. The Juicy Salif is available in grey and black anthracite, as well as a gold-plated version to celebrate its 10th anniversary.
Philippe Starck was squeezing lemon juice over calamari in an Italian pizzeria, which inspired him to sketch his idea of a lemon squeezer on the table mat. He then sent the sketch to Alberto Alessi. In an interview with architecture website Dezeen, Alessi says he loves the product, but considers it “a big joke” as the design contradicts the function.
