Kigi finds inspiration in nature for its varied designs.
The Japanese word ‘kigi’ means ‘tree’. Designers Yoshi Watanabe and Rosuke Uehra thought this a suitable name for their studio, which they deemed ‘a creative tree that might one day grow into a lush forest’. Kigi’s breadth of work certainly feels like the fruit of a lush forest. Through new approaches to the design of their products, they cleverly merge graphic design and illustration to realise beautiful and playful outcomes.
