Description
Philippe Starck - Alessi - Juicer - Juicy Salif
Italy - 1990-1999 - Aluminium

Juicy Salif is a manual designer citrus juicer in cast aluminium designed by Philippe Starck for Alessi.

Known by few, the history of this icon of design: in the early 1990s, Alberto Alessi asked Philippe Starck to create a tray of the historical kind the brand produced from 1921.
Several months went by without an answer, but one day, Alessi received an envelope from the island of Capraia containing a paper napkin from a restaurant. On it were some sketches by Starck for a new citrus juicer. While on holiday with his family on the Italian island, the designer was eating a dish of calamari, squirting lemon juice onto it, when he was inspired by the shape of the molluscs.

Beautiful item of design

The citrus juicer will be carefully packaged and put in its original box and shipped via GLS Executive express courier with online tracking available.
