Pepa was inspired by a small kitchen tool that can be found on tables in homes and restaurants all over the world: the pepper grinder. As you would hold and twist a pepper grinder to add pepper to a dish, Pepa is held and twisted to add light to your everywhere. With the warm and familiar feel of solid Ash wood, Pepa is a portable battery-powered luminaire that is inviting to touch and hold.
As you rotate the conical reflector of Pepa, the illumination can be finely and smoothly adjusted from off to on, and anywhere in-between. Rotating limitlessly 360º there are two points with precise clicks: one at full brightness and another when off.
