Lime Slicing Juicer

A Bartender's Tool

Professional or Pro-sumer citrus juicer


Lime Slicing Juicer solves a simple problem by offering the convenience of slicing the citrus fruit as it is being squeezed, and allows the user to eject the spent rind halves with a tip of the thumb.

A prize for any casual cocktail artist or professional mixologist, the simple slicing juicer enables efficiency, reduces clutter and the need for knives and cutting boards, and features integrated and swappable zesting tools.


Design Management

Concept Development

Inspired by the Inventor, "a hand squeeze juicer that cuts and juices limes at the same time", the challenge to design the best solution drove qualitative research with lead users.

Functional Analysis

Establishing the basic specifications having ranked the value of featuresets as dictated by quantitative analysis, we set off to sketch the possible futures within our framework.

While the product development process can be customized to apply effectively to the needs of the customer and adapt to changing business objectives, Principal Design's 5 step process is a framework that guides the design team and encourages communication and stable execution.

design process


Principal Design approaches every project methodically. The success of a product development project depends upon the clarity and strength of the process. Organized into the five stages most proven to leverage our design efforts, Principal Design's purpose-driven frameworks were developed and refined to reduce risk while balancing exploration with execution. Our creative strategy is divergent to leverage resources and discovery, and convergent to select for the best opportunities.
