The fixture is manufactured by Terzani in Italy. The name of the fixture is the "Magdalena-Large" fixture. This particular one was sourced locally through Bay Lighting and Design on Folsom Street in San Francisco.

Here is a link to the fixture at YLighting online:

The table was actually temporary made for the event (Dining by Design) and the table cloth is two Flokati rugs sewn together

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This table, featured in 2007's DIFFA, is whimsical and hilarious, but not so much that you couldn't actually eat there.
decordemon added this to Unconventional Dining Room Seating
Sticking with chairs not necessarily meant to go with dining tables is an excellent way to furnish a room and create a conversation starter at the same time. Sure, these hand chairs may be more bold than the average beige-tastic design lover can handle, but they definitely defy convention. Also, can you imagine all the one-liners guests would come up with here? "Let me give you a hand," "Your hand is touching my leg" and "I've got you in the palm of my hand for dinner tonight" are some of the worst, just to name a few.
Scheer & Co. added this to Dressing Your Table: Cloth or No Cloth?
Can you handle the furry tablecloth? A glimpse of the base suggests the table doesn't necessarily need to be hidden, but a rare covering such as this really sets this arrangement apart.

What Houzzers are commenting on:

This space is an example of a three-dimensional FORM. an example of form in this space is the chairs because they are in a unique form of hands. The chairs form gives off a 3-d effect and makes the space feel different and it gives visual interest.

This dining area has an Alice in Wonderland vibe. I would love to get invited to eat here; you just know that the meal would be full of surprises. The chairs, finished in a muted blue-gray color, speak loudly via their shapes yet do not take over the room in color.

This is an outrageously tongue-in-cheek sophistication. There is formality despite that everyone has a hand on their behind.
