Building upon a suite of successful collaborations and projects being delivered in China from Hong Kong, Benoy founded its studio in Shanghai in 2008. Established by a small team, Benoy set down roots on Nanjing Road with support from colleagues from the Hong Kong and London studios.

Today, this small founding team is still with Benoy – Qin Pang, now Director and Head of Shanghai, alongside Emi Wang, Carrie Mei, Wei Tang and Sherry Wu. From a small team of five, the Shanghai studio has undergone immense growth over the last decade.
