The Juicy Salif is a truly iconic object and symbol not only of Philippe Starck but of Alessi itself. This citrus squeezer is as revolutionary as it is surprisingly functional. The distinctive elongated form of the lemon squeezer is based on the shape of a squid, which came came to Starck while he was squeezing lemon juice over calamari in an Italian restaurant during a holiday by the sea in Italy. He sent the sketch drawn on a paper napkin to Alberto Alessi who very quickly understood the intent and recognized that it would be a great project.
The Salif Citrus press while is meant to be fun, has been analysed extensively. The explanation is known as the decorative veil which is the space that always exists between the function and the design of an object. Philippe exploded that little space which was previously never known to completely overlap. The futuristic design had provoked the design world as it did not adhere to the “form follows function” principle on purpose. The Salif citrus press is a contemporary design classic, now found in many homes around the world and a great practical piece that doubles up as a lovely design detail in the kitchen.
