who we are
A circle is a universal symbol with extensive meaning, representing the notions of totality, wholeness, and timelessness. Used as a metaphor for the infinite possibilities in any project, 2pi r personifies the precise execution for an optimal design solution.
Partners in life and business, multidisciplinary design duo Steen Lin and Calland Lee lead as principals at the helm of studio 2pi r. Blending a cultural awareness, passion for art, and an unwavering spirit of experimentation, the interior design studio designs spaces that captivate the senses. Working closely with artists and artisans, the team explores every creative possibility to achieve the beauty found in the unexpected.
With global experience ranging across the luxury residences, residential developments, retail, restaurant, and hotel sectors, every project infuses a sense of place with an unexpected twist to create a strong emotional connection.
Steen Lin and Calland Lee foster a practice that produces innovative and meaningful design from their Toronto-based studio. Originating from Brazil and Hong Kong respectively, the pair crossed paths during their time at Ryerson University. A bond developed over a shared desire to push the boundaries of innovative design, and the duo has cultivated multiple creative projects together ever since.
To hone their experience, Steen focused on private residential projects, while Calland led the design of luxury hospitality and retail projects around the world during his time as Design Director at Yabu Pushelberg.
Today, under the guidance of Steen and Calland, a team of creatives at 2pi r thrive on designing projects led by their collective experience. A rich foundation of varied design disciplines meld together to create beautifully appointed spaces that tell a unique, cohesive story.
