An orange finds its origin in the far east. When the fruit was just introduced in early Europe, a few hundreds of years ago, the orange had quite a special reputation. Because of its roots, this fruit was quite valuable. When you where able to afford an orange, it showed that you where wealthy and possessed knowledge of overseas countries and continents. This surrounding atmosphere is in contrast with the orange we know today. 

The Marijn Carafe brings back a bit of that emotion. Its shape refers to a royal figure, clocked with a high collar and a crown on the top. This Crown defines itself as a juicer.
