Royal Stacks AT MORRIS MOOR is a Melbourne Burger joint straight out of the 90s…yEAH, BOYEEEEEEE
The 90s launched the birth of underground music cultures, bright fashion, and David Hasselhoff along the beach. And now it has launched what has been described as Australia’s coolest burger joint – Royal Stacks.
The space is a step into 1990s suburban and popular culture. Hallmarks include bold colour and graphic design across customised joinery and upholstery.
Lighting is a showcase across the entire space with lighting design led by yours truly. The space features mix of customised lighting and vintage original lighting fixtures. Attention to detail was paramount with the team not only sourcing original fixtures from the 90s, but also tracking down original machinery tooling from the 90s to mould their own custom lighting.
The front counter bar area features illuminated glass bricks customised with dichroic film, creating a dramatic entrance and mind-bending prismatic effects. A dichroic finish also extends to retractable windows, with both areas creating varying colours and visual impact throughout the day.
There is also 90s inspired neon and signage with the graphical elements extending to the bathroom. The bathroom zone and hall enjoys wallpaper and a mirror ball that at the right time of day has a mesmerising light permeating through, an effect from afternoon light filtering through the dichroic glass.
The result is a space that is more 90s than Windows 95.
