A design i came up with. Similar to a louvered fluorescent but round. Would use one 22w or 32w circline lamp. Ballast would be located in center hub. Fixture would use a single stem mount or be surface mount.

Hmm... I could possibly try 3D printing something like this.

That would be very cool to see.

I may also design a version that fits onto one of those GE circline adaptors. Same design except the 'can' portion is removed and uses the upper part of the circline hub for support and just screw the whole thing into a standard socket.


Also to note, the cone / louver blade assembly come off the same way as a normal louver to reveal the ballast and wires in the can. The circline version the hub is the can and the louver cone fits over the bottom. The real fixture would have 9 blades and 3 of them would have holes so little pegs located on the rim fit into it to hold the bladeset in place. To open would be lift and rotate and drop it out

I'll try to get a circline adapter to try something like this with. I was at my local recycling place a few weeks ago and I saw some circline adapters. I didn't take any though.

If either of you are interested, I have 2 different circline ballasts I have no use for : https://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/displayimage.php?album=5288&pos=3&pid=161475 & https://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/displayimage.php?album=5288&pos=4&pid=160917

At first I wondered what this was doing on a Lighting forum, but its actually a pretty clever design! Older circline luminaires were often rather lousy in terms of efficacy because they were too close-fitting around the lamp, which ran too hot and decreased its performance. At least this would ensure a good flow of cool air through the luminaire like a chimney effect, although dust build-up might then be a problem after several years. The anti-glare effect of the louvres could also work well. If you had this idea >20 years ago maybe a very high-end luminaire manufacturer like Louis Poulsen may have sold such a thing in its line of decorative low-glare luminaires for hundreds of dollars! You should google them to see if their iconic styling gives you any further ideas

I like this, very space-age type design. Nice work!

Thanks someday i hope to make this fixture and others i have designed.

Other improvements i came up with are a 2 lamp version which would be wider but otherwise the same design. And there would be a tray that the ballast bolts to and the tray slips into the center can hub. There would be a chain that attaches the louver cone to the fixture to allow the drop and hang for easy service.

Only thing is for HPF ballasts, it would have to be a small can ballast with external pfc cap which would mount next to the ballast on the tray
