Alessi juicer,1990- Phillipe Starck. The form is inspired by 1950s sci-fi imagery. It looks like the tripods in War of the Worlds. The form has very little relationship to the function. Even Alessi recommends this piece for display rather than use, which means that it doesn’t work very well. It challenges the Modernist idea that form should follow function. Here the form is drawn from popular culture.
