About us | 关于过半儿
Welcome to guò bàn ér – 过半儿! Fashion, design, life.
We create simple and practical solutions that are beautiful.
We focus passionately on the issues of renewal and making.
We are an award-winning design agency with expertise in architecture, interiors, and fashion. Founded by fashion designer Sun Min (Sammy) and architect Christian Taeubert, the name of their practice, refers to having reached a halfway point in their lives (guò bàn ér – 过半儿 = 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, their readiness to explore and to deliver positive project outcomes in close cooperation with their clients.
由时装设计师孙敏和建筑师 Christian Taeubert 创立，他们的公司名称是指已经到了人生的中途点。他们将自己的创作格言描述为：“我们创造简单而实用美丽的解决方案。”这个名字不断提醒着他们，一个人一生只完成了一半，还有很多事情需要去探索。这证明了他们的好奇心，他们愿意探索，并与客户密切合作交付积极的项目成果。
