One of the first projects by French designer, Philippe Starck for Alessi. The Juicy Salif was devised in the second half of the 1980s (along with the Walter Wayle II wall clock, the Hot Bertaa kettle and the large Max le Chinois colander). An excellent example of Alessis role as artistic mediator in the most turbulent areas of creative potential (the piece was his response to our precise briefing for a stainless steel tray), it 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. To fully understand the true meaning of its existence, it is possibly necessary to refer to the theories of Leroy-Gourham, who considers the notion of functional approximation to be fundamental. This notion suggests that there is always a certain degree of freedom in interpreting relationships between Form and Function: it is precisely this continual play between Form and Function that leads to the decorative veil mentioned above, that Floch considers to be the manifestation of the legendary and aesthetic dimension of the object, as originally defined by Greimas. As well as being the most controversial citrus fruit squeezer of the 20th century, it has also become one of the icons of design of the 1990s, and it continues to be one of the most provocatively intelligent articles in the Alessi catalog.

Amazing design, one of all time staples, however I am not even tempted to use it as an actual citrus squeezer. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Georgios Cheliotis
Just like the first one we saw in Kentuck Knob near Falling Waters. Love it. Also doubles as a spaceship for 50's & 60's retro Buck Rogers films.Published 2 months ago by Billy the Kid

While this is a great juicer, I like it more as a conversation piece. It looks like a UFO has just landed on my kitchen counter. Read morePublished 7 months ago by J. Pearsall
