2x4 is thrilled to announce the reopening of our satellite studio in Beijing. The new studio will work on both independent projects and in collaboration with the New York headquarters.

The studio officially known as 2x4 Beijing will be directed by creative directors Jing Xin and Celine Fu. Both are graduates of the Masters Program in Design at the Central Academy of Fine Arts and were integral to the establishment of 2x4 in China. The two have worked closely on major 2x4 projects in China including CCTV/TVCC, the Nike 100 exhibition at 798, Prada's Beijing runway show at the CAFA Museum, the MiuMiu opening in Shanghai, a special chinese-focused traveling exhibition for Tiffany and Co., the Shenzhen Stock Exchange, Beijing Design Week, Urban China, and the Ordos Prize.

"We are so excited to have 2x4 Beijing up and running." says 2x4 partner Michael Rock, "Jing and Celine have been essential collaborators on all the major projects we have taken on in the far east. That we are entrusting them to lead our first official satellite office is an index of our absolute faith in their potential in the years ahead."

Located in a converted factory in Chaoyang District, the new office allows 2x4 to expand our reach and provide close collaboration with our global clients as we continue to focus on brand strategy for culture and commercial clients worldwide.
