From the manufacturer
Founded in 1921 as a 'Workshop for the processing of brass and nickel silver sheet metal, with foundry', Alessi has always stood out for the high quality of its products. In almost a century of history, the company has gradually evolved to become one of the leading 'Factories of Italian design', capable of applying its expertise and excellence in design management to many different product types. Open to change and international development, Alessi at the same time has a strong bond with the traditions and cultural background of its area and continues to be synonymous with handcrafted objects produced with the help of machines.
Alessi’s mission is to translate its quest for the most advanced cultural, aesthetic, design and functional quality into industrial production. Designer products are the result of the constant reconciliation of art and industry, of the 'Immensity of Creative Potential' and the needs of the market. The company is committed to work constantly onto a boundary line, in balance between the most advanced expressions of the international creativity and the desires of the general public. Alessi has been described as a 'Dream Factory', which uses its products to make people’s dreams come true, providing them with the Art and Poetry that they seek.
Born in Paris in 1949, he is one of the most original and creative designers of our time. He has obtained many important acknowledgements such as the Grand Prix National de la Création industrielle and the Honor Award of the American Institute of Architects, he considers himself as a Japanese architect, an American art director, a German industrial designer, a French artistic director, an Italian furniture designer.

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.

The form is indeed beautiful when you open the box, but the function is pretty poor. First, if you read the instructions inside the box, it makes clear this is only designed as a lemon squeezer. Don't call it a "citrus squeezer" on the website and box exterior if you can't use it for oranges and grapefruit. And, believe me you can't. You'll get almost as much juice on the wall and counter as you do in the glass since the juice will spray in every direction. Even when I very delicately spent a minute or so carefully squeezing a lemon half into a mug, there was a fair amount of lemon juice sprayed on the counter. This never happens with the simple glass manual squeezer we've had for years.
In short, if you want something that looks nice on your counter but barely works, this is the juicer for you. If you squeeze oranges and grapefruits with any regularity for a glass of juice, don't waste your time.
