Elinor Portnoy is a designer now based in London. She has studied industrial design and she is attending Cercamic and Glass programme at Royal College of Art, London. She has several products currently in the market and she is exploring the potential of combining craft and materials with design through her studies in London.

Juicer is a colorful glass product, made from hand blown glass, it has been carved and ground to a smooth finish. Elinor says about it: “Nowadays, kitchens are becoming an open space joined with the living room, and are transformed from being just a working space to a hosting area as well. This has a great effect on the way we choose kitchen tools and how we display them. A tool can then become a decorative object as well, thereby questioning the way we perceive function and form. These citrus squeezers are made of glass with multiple colours, revealed by cold-working to “peel off” the layers, much like the fruit it squeezes. The inner bubble makes it lighter and easier to hold, and the outer layer is sand-blasted for better grip.” A beautiful functional product but also a decorative object.
