Kiko + gg are the two ranges of the wooden toys designed and manufactured by Kukkia.
Working closely with both Japanese and international designers, the brand is known for reinventing disposable plastic toys into longer lasting wooden creations.
I’ve had the pleasure of organising numerous lifestyle product photography shoots for kiko +gg for many years in London and Osaka. I also provided e-commerce website photography and creative editorial photography.
The designer and creative director Kaz Shiomi usually flies to London to attend the shoots and always brings an unexpected element which make each shoot so special. Their toys and my images are regularly featured in fashion and children’s magazines around the world such as goop, Milk Magazine, Papier Marche and Doolittle Magazine, and they often partner with companies on joint projects.
Previous partnerships have included Muji, Lanvin, Bon Point and Air France to name a few. Kukkia’s Usagi (modelled her pet rabbit) can also be found in the London Design Museum.
“She is an absolute pleasure to work with. Very professional and considerate, she listened to what we wanted but also came up with some very cool ideas to show off our toys. She is very warm and makes models and clients alike feel comfortable: Highly recommended *****”
