About 过半儿guò bàn er: Fashion, design, life! Founded by fashion designer Sun Min (Sammy) and architect Christian Taeubert, the name of their practice refers to having reached the halfway point in their lives (过半儿guò bàn er = more than half). They describe their maxim for their creative work the following: “We create simple and practical solutions that are beautiful.” The name is their constant reminder that there is still a lot to explore if one is only ‘halfway’ done. It’s a testament to their curiosity and readiness to explore and deliver positive project outcomes in close cooperation with their clients.
过半儿 guò bàn ér company culture: We founded 过半儿 guò bàn er in June 2021. We strive to set new industry standards despite being a small firm of 4 employees only. From the beginning days of the studio, we have offered our employees a four-day workweek at total compensation of a typical five-day workweek. What started as an experiment has proven to be a successful model to guarantee a healthy work-life balance for our staff while providing excellent services to our clients. To lead this new way of working in China makes us proud.
