Where to find these recessed lights ?

Hi, all. First time poster...I saw these lights in an office building and am hoping someone can identify them for me or give some input into where to find them. I'm thinking they would go great in a basement.

They were on a dimmer so I've attached images with them dimmed and full brightness.

Any feedback is appreciated and thanks in advance!

The first pic appears to have something printed inside the high hat. Can you go back to look at it or ask the super of the building?

Welcome to the forums.

It looks like a bulb that lights up blue in the back. Pretty cool looking. I've never seen them before.

In the first picture, where it's dimmed, it looks like there is writing on the bulb.

Yeah,
I would go back to the building and ask to look at housing further. They probably wouldn't object.
The bulbs in picture are too bright to see, but they may be triple tube CFL's with dimmable ballasts.
I would guess they are Juno, popular with the pros. Another reason I suspect triple CFL is they are very bright at max power.
If these are 4-pin triple tube CFL with dimmable ballast, they are rather expensive.

I am not sure but it looks like the fixture was made by Westinghouse. I used what software I have on my laptop to try to enhance the letters on the fixtures. I couldn't see the letters but found what I think was the Westinghouse symbol in the upper right hand corner. Maybe that might at least give some clues as to what type of fixture this was. Although I agree if you can get a close up look at the fixture then maybe you will be able to find what you want.

From what I could make out.... I think the writing is upside down in the picture and that is a UL emblem.

Could it be one of these?
Gotham Candeo 8 in. 32W Triple CFL Open Reflector Blue Diffuser Downlight seem a bit pricey for a basement but they are cool.

If that's not it, it's pretty much the same thing.
Like I said above, these triple tube fixtures are expensive. Not sure why, must be the ballast.

Edit: Web site doesn't say if they are dimmable.

Dimmable ballasts are available as an option according to C/S

You would be shocked at what companies spend on lighting. We are forever getting specs and prices on custom fixtures. It's not unheard of installing three handblown glass pendant fixtures over the reception desk at $1000 each.

One thing I noticed on the web site Geo posted is that the blue diffuser is patented, so those could very well be the same lights.

Thanks, all! I'll be back in that building after the holidays so I'll get a better image of the wording and see if I can't track the facilities staff down. The Gotham may be the same or very similar, just hard to tell from the site. I'll post what else I find so stay tune...

I was able to get a better image of the table in the photos above this week. It reads:

If lamp is marked "HG symbol" it contains Mercury. Follow disposal laws. See Home - LampRecycleLampRecycle U210466

That hasn't gotten me very far online, but if it gives anyone else a clue, please let me know. Next time there I'm going to try and track down maintenance to see if they have details.

Those fixtures appear to have fluorescent lamps which do have a drop of HG ,that still doesn't help you ID the fixture .
