A new project and visit to Spoonful of Sugar Beijing

Thank goodness Yan Li reached out to Lin Lin, co-founder of the Shanghai and Beijing–based design firm Jellymon.  Not only would we have not had the chance for our next project—revamping the websites for her social enterprises Spoonful of Sugar (recent press) and Re-Up—but we also wouldn’t have got to experience this great little space in the heart of the city.

Located in the Dashilar hutons here in Beijing, the cafe and event space occupies a former Art Deco–style factory built in the 1950s. Great sandwiches, atmosphere, and brainstorming made for a wonderful afternoon.
