The three anySCALE partners, Karin, Tom and Andreas, have known and worked with each other for over a decade in Beijing, first coming together as coworkers in their previous company. It didn’t take long for them to discover that they shared similar views and standards when it came to areas of design, business, and life in general. Raising young families and with their children attending the same school, they in particular share an affinity for certain life values such as leading a healthy lifestyle and designing considerately for the next generation. In 2011 the three friends decided to embark on their own adventure by founding SCALE in Hong Kong, the mother company of anySCALE. One year later anySCALE was founded in Beijing. Most recently the company is proud to announce it’s latest addition of anySCALE Shanghai in 2016.

When working on any project each partner has his or her unique strengths to contribute, and, like with different flavours in a dish, when combined they work well together to enhance and support each other. Andreas brings his invaluable experience in the automotive industry as well as his pure lines and clean, considered details to the table. Tom’s constant search for optimisation is balanced with his mischievous side, always staying ahead of the game by injecting an element of surprise into his projects. Karin brings sophistication and class to any project, and has a natural ability for understanding a client’s ideas and translating them into reality.   

During the last five years Tom, Karin and Andreas have formed a strong presence in China’s design market. anySCALE has a reputation for strong corporate identity development and has become the design face for companies such as Soho China, BMW and Daimler. The company has grown from a staff of 4 to 24 by 2015, translating into a 150% year-on-year growth, and expanded over three locations. It’s safe to say anySCALE is on the rise, and we’re all excited to see where this adventure leads.

任督设计(anySCALE)的三位合伙人,即,Karin、Tom与Andreas,自第一次作为同事为先前的公司效力开始,他们已在北京相互认识和工作长达十多年。共事之后没过多久,他们就发现他们在设计、业务、日常生活等方面有着相似的观点和标准。同是有孩子且孩子在同一所学校上学的家庭,尤其在某些人生价值观方面,例如,引领健康的生活方式和为下一代进行体贴入微的规划等,他们总是感到非常亲切。2011年,这三个朋友决定开启他们的冒险之旅——在香港成立了SCALE公司,也就是anySCALE任督设计的母公司。一年后,任督设计在北京成立。最近,公司很自豪地宣布其最新子公司任督设计(上海)分公司也已成立。在开展任何项目时,这三位都会有其独特的优势来做出贡献,就像是一道菜的不同调味料一样,当结合在一起时,他们则能够良好配合,相互提高,相互支持。Andreas为项目带来的是其在汽车行业的宝贵经验、纯粹的线条与深思熟虑的细节。Tom对最优化的孜孜追求和其风趣搞怪的一面完美结合,通过在其项目中注入惊喜元素,使其总能在游戏方面保持领先。Karin能够令任何项目精致出色,而且其拥有充分理解客户想法并将其变成现实的天资和才能。在过去五年里,Tom、Karin与Andreas已经在中国设计市场中形成了极强的存在感。任督设计凭借其强有力的企业形象发展享有良好声誉,并已成为诸如SOHO中国、宝马及戴姆勒等公司的设计机构。到2015年,公司员工已从最初的4人增长至24人,相当于同比增长150%,并且公司扩展至三个经营地点。可以有把握地说,任督设计正处于上升态势,看到这个冒险之旅达到如此高度,我们都非常激动。
