Anwar Mekhayech

Dynamic designer

Partner in Toronto-based the Design Agency, this Canadian’s eclectic sense of design, studies in engineering and interest in travel and culture all help Anwar shape some seriously stylish projects. Beirut-born Anwar grew up in the family’s restaurant business, opening his own modern bistro sPaHa in 2000 at the University of Toronto. As a restaurateur, chef and designer Anwar also helped his father open a restaurant in Paris. Little wonder he’s had a weekly column in the Toronto Star Lifestyle section, and co-hosted HGTV’s The Designer Guys.
