Abstract (en)

To provide a lighting apparatus capable of easily varying the color of illuminating light in accordance with a desired atmosphere while maintaining vividness of a visual object illuminated with the light, and desirable color appearance. A lighting apparatus 1 includes: two or more types of light sources 2 having different emission spectrums; a controller 3 that allows setting of a color temperature of illuminating light from the light sources 2; and a control unit 4 that individually controls outputs of the light sources 2 so that the illuminating light has the color temperature set by means of the controller 3. The control unit 4, when the controller 3 has been operated to change the set color temperature, controls outputs of the light sources 2 so that the color temperature is varied in a state where a feeling of contrast index FCI is higher than 123 and a variation width of the FCI keeps within 10. Since the FCI is maintained at a value higher than 123 when the color temperature is changed, the color of the illuminating light can be easily varied in accordance with a desired atmosphere while maintaining vividness of a visual object illuminated by the illuminating light, and the desirable color appearance.
