If you are looking for interesting lamp design, search for Heng balance lamp.

Cheaper knockoffs can be found on ebay and amazon.

I don't have any recommendations. Just search for heng balance lamp, and sort by price and see what you like.
The design is actually pretty simple - the magnetic balls lift up the switch at the base to turn light on.

I agree there's nothing Japanese about the material or design, although it is minimalist. They could also call it Scandinavian or Swedish and no one would argue.
Google image search Japanese lamp and compare results to Swedish lamp. This is actually a common Japanese design. Just saying, it is not arbitrarily labeled

That's only half true. This design itself is not common in Japan. This design is a poor attempt by someone to mimic Japanese lamps. They only succeeded in copying the square shape. Traditional Japanese lamps (more accurate to say lantern really) are designed with solid frames that symbolize boundaries/fortitude and paper/clothes membranes to connect the frames (but not hide them like this product). There are certain cultural meanings attached to it, but that's a topic for another day. I'm attaching pictures of "real" Japanese lamp designs.
P.S. Haitral is a Chinese company too.

Yup they used to sell a few that looked similar to this back at ikea a few years back. I haven't been able to find them anymore but they were cheap too (about $9 from what I remember)

Might get a couple of these. They look like they would work well for Hue lights to setup some color/ambience.
