```Christoph:

I assume you want x to be a function that returns a list of length 2 or
more for each of the inputs 1 and 2.  If you assume that this will
happen, the following pure function will work for you.

In[6]:=
g = {{#[1][[1]], #[1][[2]]}, {#[2][[1]], #[2][[2]]}} &

Out[6]=
{{#1[1]\[LeftDoubleBracket]1\[RightDoubleBracket], #1[
1]\[LeftDoubleBracket]2\[RightDoubleBracket]}, {#1[
2]\[LeftDoubleBracket]1\[RightDoubleBracket], #1[
2]\[LeftDoubleBracket]2\[RightDoubleBracket]}} &

In[7]:=
f[k_] := Table[i^k, {i, 1, 5}]

In[8]:=
f[1]

Out[8]=
{1, 2, 3, 4, 5}

In[9]:=
f[2]

Out[9]=
{1, 4, 9, 16, 25}

In[10]:=
g[f]

Out[10]=
{{1, 2}, {1, 4}}
