Why "HOKU" and a Lime?
WHY HOKU?

HOKU is Star in Hawaiian language.
When you switch it on, it’s like capturing a fraction of those unpolluted night skies on your desk, and that’s why the name HOKU came so natural to us.

WHY A LIME?

The first time we got so excited about creating something with a LED was in the chemistry lab.
Connecting simply a few pennies, galvanised nails and limes, we powered our first LED, a monochrome Red LED.
Creating light using a lime, a few metal parts and just your hands is absolutely wicked, and makes you feel great!
