    There are many reasonable 'pre-made' lights available to give you this look and a handyman could attach the pipe.

    If you are talking about the 3 pendant lights shown in the picture, those are similar to our Firefly Cord-Hung Ceiling Lights. It seem like a black cord, and the backplate is likely done in a Painted Aluminum to match the modern setting. You can see that light I described here: http://barnlightoriginals.com/ceiling-lights/vintage-lights/the-firefly-cord-hung-ceiling-light

    I attached an image for you to see, and that fixture can come with or without a key.

    This lighting idea is really 'smart'. Being able to achieve island lighting without electrical boxes in the ceiling. I think this could be done with a number of lights.
    We had a similar idea for a client's kitchen that solved her situation.

4. Get your swag on. If you are adding new pendant lighting but don’t want to deal with the expense or hassle of changing your home’s electrical setup, cord swags can be a stylish solution. Swag them loosely over a bar or a hook, as seen in this kitchen, or secure the cord tight to the ceiling for an industrial look.

DIY Details in TorontoWho lives here: Timothy Mitanidis and Claudia BaderLocation: Queen Street Fashion District of TorontoWanting to cut costs while renovating their home, Timothy Mitanidis and Claudia Bader — designers at Creative Union Network — got crafty. Instead of having a bank of lighting installed over the kitchen island, the couple created their own DIY frame using gas pipe and fittings from the hardware store, allowing them to drape simple ceramic sockets and rope wire from the wall.See the rest of this home

What an understated beauty! A very simple yet effective concept, this chandelier uses three light bulbs, some cord and a lot of creativity to add an industrial touch to an otherwise elegant room.See the rest of this home

Adjacent to the dining area is the most visually striking space in the home: the sleek, black kitchen. The cabinets are crafted out of concrete formwork, resulting in an unusual brushed sheen. In keeping with the theme, the designers poured a gray concrete countertop that folds to run up a wall and onto the ceiling. Overhead, installed piping allows the wall-mounted pendant lights to hang centered over the island. This was a clever cost-saving solution, as installing lights in the fire-rated ceiling would have stretched the already tight budget.
