If iconicity is about being recognizable, then Philippe Starck’s Juicy Salif lemon squeezer is a quintessentially iconic design. Its unique shape has not been seen before or since, even though it is imbued with multiple references and has been exceptionally influential. But, Starck’s Juicy Salif is nothing but recognizable: it barely functions as a lemon squeezer, and therefore its main purpose is to appear, to be noticed and to be recognized.
