    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a color tunable lighting device comprising at least one light source (302), a symmetry axis (306) and an envelope (304). The at least one light source (302) is disposed on a base (301) extending within a plane and the envelope (304) is disposed at least above the base (301) and defines a cavity (305) extending along the symmetry axis (306). The at least one light source (302) is arranged at a distance X from the symmetry axis (306) along a radial direction relative to the symmetry axis. The plane is arranged to intersect the symmetry axis (306). The distance X may be at least 50% of a total distance between the symmetry axis (306) and an edge of the envelope (304), or a projection of the edge of the envelope (304) on the plane in which the base (301) extends, as seen along the radial direction. A curvature of the envelope (304) is monotonically increasing with an increasing distance from the base (301).

  • Patent number: 10480733
    Abstract: Lighting systems, devices, methods and apparatus for simulating a candle flame are disclosed. The systems and methods employ spatially distributed, disjointed sets of light-emitting elements that are independently controlled with randomized control signals to simulate a candle flame by forming spatially and temporally varying lighting effects. Further, the disjointed sets are controlled such that the total light intensity is essentially maintained. In addition, systems and methods employ a transition probability model to adjust intensities of light-emitting elements in a way that accurately mimics a candle flame.

The solid state light emitter assembly comprises a light exit window (110), a reflector (120?, 120?), a light guide (150?, 150?) and a solid state light emitter (160). The reflector reflect light towards the light exit window and has at least one edge (122?, 122?) bending towards the light exit window. The light guide receives light at a first end (152) and emits at a second end (154?, 15?) the guided light towards the reflector. The first end is arranged at a first side of the at least one edge. The first side is away from a reflecting surface (124) of the reflector. The solid state light emitter is also at the first side and emits light towards the first end of the light guide. A portion of the light that is reflected by the reflector is transmitted through the light guide through side surfaces of the light guide.

  • Publication number: 20190293270
    Abstract: A lighting device has at least two lighting strips, which are slidable relative to each other and overlap in a region of overlap so that the overall length may be adjusted. The combined light intensity per unit length of the lighting strips in the region of overlap corresponds to the light intensity per unit length of the first and second lighting strips outside the region of overlap. This arrangement makes sure the combined light output in the region of overlap is the same as where the lighting strips do not overlap. In this way, the overall device is reversibly and repeatedly extendable and retractable and maintains a relatively constant light output per unit length.
