Reasons relating to ergonomics, efficiency and ease of manufacturing have always defined the sorts of utensils that people use at any given point in time. The Aluminum Stone Lemon Squeezer may represent a reverting to primitive and slightly more cumbersome methods of juicing fruit, yet there is value in its creation.
Sivan Hefetz' product was made through traditional techniques of manipulating metals through copper flattening and aluminum casting. A multifaceted rock-like object was formed that resembles the carved tools dug up by archaeologists.
To use it, hold the Aluminum Stone Lemon Squeezer firmly in one hand and, with a half citrus fruit in the other, press the pulpy insides until the liquid drips out. This ancient-times-inspired product invites a more hands-on experience of food preparation.
