yaacov kaufman is a jerusalem-based designer with numerous awards to his name. when he is not teaching at the bezalel academy of art & design, he finds time to create fun products like ‘juice bruce’, for the always amusing home accessories and gift company monkey business. made out of a single piece of wood, ‘bruce’ the juicer comes with its own personality and looks, adding to the juicing and eating experience an extra dose of joy.

 

‘there is nothing that ‘bruce’ enjoys more than juicing citrus fruits. head first he goes – into the lemon, orange, grapefruit twisting and turning until every last drop has been extracted.’
