He remembers having spent his childhood under his father's drawing tables, passing hours stitching, cutting, gluing and grinding, disassembling bicycles, motorbikes and other objects. Endless hours, an entire life spent dismantling and reassembling anything that fell into his hands, reconstructing his surrounding world. He continues to shake the traditions and culture of the world's major cities, with the interior design of the restaurant at Hong Kong's Peninsula Hotel (1994), the Teatron in Mexico (1995), the Delano Hotel a Miami (1995), the Modrian in Los Angeles (1996), the Asia de Cuba restaurant in New York (1997), as well as an entire series of ongoing projects in London and elsewhere. His skill lies in being able to transform instantly the object of the commission into a place filled with charm, pleasure and encounters. He tirelessly modifies everyday life, exalting the deepest roots of existence in his changes. His increasing fascination with life has now led him to create clothes, underwear, footwear, glasses, food, and always with the conviction that his design respects nature and the future of humankind. In the exhibits of museums all around the world, in Paris, New York, Munich, London, Chicago, Kyoto and Barcelona, his work is considered to be that of a master. He has received numerous prizes and awards: designer of the year, the Oscar de luminaire (1980), the title of Officier des Artes et des Lettres (1985), Compasso d'Oro ADI (2001), Show Boats in Munich (2003), and many others.

Questions & Answers
Alessi Philippe Starck Juicy Salif Citrus-Squeezer
George from Evanston, IL– Verified Buyer
My 7 year old thought it looked like a space ship. I ended up showing her how to make orange juice with it. Now all she keeps asking for more juice just so she can see it being made. :)
Elizabeth from Eden Prairie, MN
Very functional but I'm in love with the sculptural quality of the piece and it is an unique addition to my bar. Great for specialty cocktails requiring juice of a single lime or lemon. Won't use it for a large batch of margaritas; too much work.

It surprisingly heavy. Well formed. No blemish or marks.

This squeezer has become an icon of design. It is not only eminently functional, but it is also an indisputably sculptural object.

Just got it but have yet to use. Expect this to be more of a conversation piece than juicer. Art for the kitchen with maybe some functionality.
Lynnelle from Norwalk, CT– Verified Buyer
Fun to use, easy to clean and the design brings a smile to my face everyday.
Gigi from Boston, MA– Verified Buyer
I'm so in love with this design. It is a piece of art. The finish is not as reflective as I thought. but, maybe it's not supposed to be. It's most suitable for lemons, tangerine, or similar sized oranges.

Just as expected - a very striking piece of art. I will say that I thought some of the edges would be a bit smoother, but other than that it's perfect!
