Saiko Design’s Bud hanging lampshade is a NiMi favorite. An ethereal Mino washi paper lantern, it features an inner globe that diffuses light to a warm, natural glow that enhances the texture and design of an outer sphere. The lacy geometric pattern is a texture created by skilled washi artisans and inspired by silvery white plum blossoms, while the framework draws on folding chochin lantern techniques. At 80 centimeters in diameter, it’s a beautiful centerpiece for any room.

Mino washi is famed for its durability and has been used for shoji sliding doors, uchiwa fans, parasols and chochin lanterns for over a millennia. We love how Saiko Design combines Mino washi and traditional lantern-making to create something so contemporary.

Based in Gifu, Saiko Design brings together the traditional crafts of Mino washi paper and Japanese lanterns to create beautiful minimalist lampshades. They collaborate with local craftspeople who continue to use techniques that date back more than 1,300 years to produce shades featuring subtle textures, delicate patterns and vibrant colors. The washi is made using Nasu mulberry from Ibaraki Prefecture and water from Mino’s Itadori River, frames are constructed using chochin lantern techniques and patterns are inspired by traditional Japanese motifs. Each work is also designed to enhance the beauty of washi with light.
