  • Patent number: 7152991
    Abstract: A make up station provides even illumination for a performer's face while minimizing glare and distracting reflections. The make up station is modular to allow the easy assembly of multiple make up stations partially sharing common lighting between adjacent stations. Light rays emanating from the forward most edge of a light source are blocked by a raised trim or reflected from the mirror surface in a direction so that they do not impinge on the user's eye.

  • Patent number: 6632001
    Abstract: A closet hanging rod structure with an illumination function is provided having a voltage-regulating device, two fixing units, two adjustment units, and a hanging rod. The voltage-regulating device is fixedly disposed at a predetermined position inside a closet or a wardrobe. The two fixing units are fixedly disposed on a partition board of the closet or the wardrobe. The adjustment units can be joined with the two fixing units. Two ends of the hanging rod are joined at one end of the two adjustment units. The adjustment units can be used to adjust the height of the hanging rod. The voltage-regulating device is used to provide a stable voltage for supplying required electricity for the lamp tube in the hanging rod, hence achieving an untrammeled and high-brightness illumination effect and avoiding the problem of insufficient light required for selecting or discriminating clothes.
