To this end, the modern lighting company Tech Lighting has created a new kind of recessed light. Called Element Reflections, the concept is an LED ring light which bounces light up into a decorative reflector dome to cast diffused illumination down onto a space.
The inner reflective dome comes in five different styles.
|Bloom reflector dome|
|Dune reflector dome|
|Fleur reflector dome|
|Skye reflector dome|
|Torus reflector dome|
The apertures are available in three different sizes, 5", 8" and 12". And each light can be further customized by coming with a flange (or trim kit as it sometimes called) or without a flange to be plastered into the ceiling plane.
Here are some images of the Bloom reflector in situ...
...and here is the more modern Dune dome.
The Fleur dome is possibly the most decorative of all and could enhance traditional decors...
This seems to be an elegant solution to the "Swiss cheese ceiling" effect!
