[origin: WO9618068A1] The proposed recessed light fitting (1) is provided with assembly means (5) whose purpose is to ensure secure mounting in a fitting recess (8), holding elements (2) to hold at least one lamp (11), components (9) to ensure that the lamp is supplied with electrical current, and light-modifying means (3) to alter the light emitted by the lamp (11). The holding elements (2) and/or light-modifying means (3) are detachably joined to the assembly means (5) in such a way that they can execute only a limited movement between an operating position and an assembly position via a connecting unit (106, 181).
