Title: Polygonal illumination reflector

Abstract: A polygonal illumination reflector includes a support base and a configuration of discrete reflector elements supported by the support base. The reflector elements have respective pairs of opposite side edges and respective interior reflective surfaces. The reflector elements adjoin one another in providing the configuration. The support base has a plurality of adjacent side portions and a plurality of retaining pockets defined between and interconnecting the adjacent side portions to one another. The adjacent side portions of the support base correspond in number to the reflector elements. The retaining pockets are arranged in pairs wherein the retaining pockets of each pair are open in a facing relationship toward one another so as to receive therein and set in engagement therewith the opposite side edges of the reflector elements in a first sequence in the configuration. The reflector elements in a second sequence in the configuration are disposed between the reflector elements of the first sequence and supported by corresponding ones of the side portions of the support base such that the reflective surfaces of the reflector elements of the first sequence and the opposite side edges of the reflector elements of the second sequence together form spaced apart inner edges on the configuration of discrete reflector elements.
