Design by Philippe Starck, 2008.
This year, Alessi is introducing its first collection of miniatures: a series comprising a number of classics from the last sixty years of Alessi's production, like the Juicy Salif Miniature Citrus-Squeezer by designer Philippe Starck. The collection was created with special consideration for collectors of Alessi's products, to give them the chance to complete their private collections of authentic objects, and with considerable savings in terms of both space and expenditure.
This citrus squeezer is renowned for its combination of form and function.
Material: 18/10 stainless steel.
Notes: This is a miniature reproduction of the original, iconic Alessi product.
Dimensions: 4.485" H x 1.95" W x 1.755" D
Model(s): ALS-PSJS-M PSJS-M
Born in Paris in 1949, Philippe Starck is one of the most original designers and architects of the last three decades. Having designed furniture, hotels, mega-yachts, lighting and many others throughout his career, Starck has become a fixture in modern design. Not only does Starck create beautifully unconventional designs, he creates a finished product whose main purpose is to function well before anything else.
Philippe Starck has obtained many important acknowledgements, including the Grand Prix National de la Création industrielle and the Honor Award of the American Institute of Architects. In Starck's own words, "subversive, ethical, ecological, political, humorous... this is how I see my duty as a designer."See other lights/products from Philippe Starck
Alessi - Italian Design
The Alessi company was founded by Giovanni Alessi in 1921 in Omegna, Italy. Giovanni, a talented sheet metal worker, produced items by hand for the table and the home out of copper, brass and nickel-silver. Giovanni's son Carlo, trained in industrial design, joined him at Alessi and was responsible for many of the designs produced in the 1930s through the mid 1940s.
During the war years, Alessi produced stars for uniforms and mechanical parts for Savoia Marchetti airplanes. After the war, thanks to an enormous demand for brass ladles for the U.S. army, the Alessis expanded the company and started mass production. Carlo's brother Ettore, who joined the company in 1945, was the first to bring outside designers to the company, such as the architects Carlo Mazzeri, Luigi Massoni and Anselmo Vitale. Since that time, the range of products offered by Alessi has expanded to include such items as office accessories and electrical appliances, in collaboration with a growing range of contemporary designers such as Jasper Morrison and Philippe Starck, all the while maintaining Alessi's commitment to design and quality.

The mini juicer is awesome - great gift!!
It showed up looking just as expected - an excellent gift idea for my clients. Most of them know about Starck designs but do not own any. The Juicy Salif Miniature is an inexpensive way for me to introduce the WOW Factor of intelligent design into their homes.
