Alessi’s Juicy Salif citrus squeezer is a design icon from 1990. Juicy Salif was created by designer Philippe Starck during his seaside holiday in Italy. Starck took his inspiration from a dish of squid with lemon and drew sketches of Juicy Salif on a pizzeria mat. With the squeezer’s unconventional design, Starck challenged the principle “form follows function”. Besides squeezing lemons, the primary function of the unconventional, sculptural citrus squeezer is to start conversations.

The french designer Philippe Starck (b. 1949) studied in École Nissim de Camondo in Paris and stayed in Paris after his studies. He became famous for his style and even the president Francois Mitterand asked him to design a suite to his palace. Starck became one of the most famous designers of that time and designed everything from apartment blocks, homes, domestic products and hotels.
In the 80s and 90s Starck started working for Kartell. The cooperation was built on the company’s will to create eco-friendly, contemporary plastic furniture and the designer's particular style. One of the most iconic designs of our time, the transparent Louis Ghost chair, was one of the results of the cooperation with Kartell.View all products
