I saw this earlier when I was looking for something else....argon lamps come in interesting shapes, and the fixture looks like little more then a few stainless steel woks with the handles removed, two metal tubes, and a glass diffuser. .

You could get some acrylic rods and such and put together a really impressive light using "light tunnels", similar to fiber optics but on a bigger scale, the nice thing is a diffuse source means some light will hit the total internal reflection angle but the rest still does as supposed to... Maybe use fluorescent ring lights in a cool way...
