Citrange Innovates on the Hand Juicer

October 7, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Citrange. A simple fancy juicer by Quentin de Coster.

Citrange is a juicer designed by and for fruit. It is a product that is innovative both functionally and formally. This squeezer is divided into two parts to better adapt to the various diameters of citrus fruit. The juice is released by cells when the latter are pressed against the walls. Then it is directed towards the central axis of the object by the funnel (which filters out seeds) before falling into the glass.
