There are a number of ways that floating shelves can be installed. The reason that the shelf is thick is that it has an interior structure that is connected to the wall. Here is a story about the basic concept, http://www.bobvila.com/blogs/how-to-install-floating-shelves/
You can buy shelf kits at the hardware store, but most are intended to hold a few decorative items (check the specifications). In order to support heavier items, these shelves were supported with structural steel. Here's an example of this same concept that was used to make a floating counter top, which is strong enough to stand on!

BTW, I liked these floating shelves so much in this San Francisco Bay Area pool house construction project that I used it as the first slide on a YouTube I made about Bill's approach to building custom cabinetry, some of which is made in our own shop:

Wow you've got eagle eyes!
That's the beauty of puck lighting, it is barely visible :)
I don't know what brand we used - the type of lighting is called puck lighting (because it resembles a hockey puck, I think). Here are examples: http://www.lightinguniverse.com/puck-lights-under-cabinet-lights_90_s111.html
It could very well be by Hera as we install a lot of Hera products: http://www.heralighting.com/top/products/xenon/xr1xs1/
