More than one way to juice a lemon

Two ways to free the juice of a lemon: a simple squeezer from Nova68 and a wall-mount juicer concept from design student Gibli Ortal

If you want a little splash of lemon or lime juice for your tea, you might be tempted to make do with one of those plastic facsimiles. But two Danish designers have come up with a more elegant solution: a stainless steel twist that you can screw directly into a fresh lemon or lime. Give the citrus a squeeze to coax a little juice from it. You can also leave the twist inside the lemon when you return it to the fridge, so fresh juice is always a squeeze away.

Need more juice? Look to this concept juicer from designer Gibli Ortal. It hangs over the edge of your counter at the optimal ergonomic height for crushing citrus. The juice drips down into a removable pitcher; the part that sits on the counter also doubles as a cutting board. The whole thing folds up and can be hung on the wall when not in use--though, as commenters on this Apartment Therapy: Kitchen post have pointed out, it might prompt giggles.
